The Vikings’ front office may be looking to trade Percy Harvin, but Harvin’s quarterback says the players want him back.
“Obviously we want Percy back,” Ponder said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “He’s a tremendous player and he’s a Viking. And those are tough shoes to fill and we don’t want to fill them. He’s a heck of a player and a heck of a part of this offense and this team in general. Of course we want him back.”
Ponder previously spoke in the past tense about Harvin, saying he “was” a good teammate, and he did it again in this interview, saying, “we had a good relationship.” So even though Ponder wants to keep playing with Harvin, he seems to be resigned to the idea that Harvin will be elsewhere in 2013.
