Until the Vikings use those picks and Harvin takes the field for the Seahawks, we can’t know who the winners and losers of this trade will be. It’s safe to say at this point that Peterson isn’t loving the deal for his team, though. Peterson took to Twitter to wish Harvin well in Seattle and to let it be known that he was feeling the trade deep in his gut.
The best all around player I ever seen or you'll ever see! Goes to Seattle! I feel like I just got kicked in the stomach. Several times!!!—

One thing for Peterson to keep in mind is that things could be worse. He could feel like he got kicked slightly lower on his body.
