The Vikings’ front office may be looking to trade Percy Harvin, but Harvin’s quarterback says the players want him back.
Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder said on KFAN that the Vikings’ locker room doesn’t want to lose Harvin.
“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.
