So... I seem to have seen a lot of love for him in the big free agency thread. Am I in the minority in thinking that he has some major health concerns?
Unless we get the 18 mill back from our cap penalty id say no
No, No and No.
Late round pick! He does have issues. If he can be had on the cheap, why not? I would take anyone with potential if they are able to be had with little impact financially or on the draft.

Even if we had the 18 mil, I'd still say no. Not worth it for a dude who's only going to play 6-8 games a year.
No way in Hell we would be able to afford that contract. Nor do I think Mike and Bruce would even think about paying a WR the amount of money he's going to ask for.
I think his injury problems stem from Minnesota over-using him so much each season. On the Redskins he would be in a specific role and would not be over-used as we have other playmakers, thus the injury concern would reduce.
If you're the return man, go to receiver, and used on screens and gadget plays multiple times each game, every single season, then you're at a much greater risk for injury due to overusage and the amount of tackles and hits you're facing.
For the right price, he'd be worth it. Harvin would be phenomenal in our system, especially with RG3 throwing to him and having Garcon as a complementing receiver.

It's almost too perfect. Maybe we could trade for him twice?
I would entertain it at least instead of rejecting it out of hand like some of the previous posts. The guy is a straight-up baller but his biggest issues are his mental health and that might not be fixable. It's telling that Minny is willing to part ways with a clear talent and the 2nd best player on their team. The guy has sheer athletic ability on the level of our beloved QB (at least in the same neighborhood). Can you imagine the force multiplier of those two on the field together? At the very least, it's entertaining to imagine...

For a 2nd day draft choice? Yes

It depends on what it would take to get him.
The Brandon Marshall trade was two 3rds, I don't know if Harvin would command that, and personally, I'm hesitant to spend anything higher than a 4th for him, unless it was already in the grand plan to add a WR with our 2nd or 3rd. And we have to remember that this would be a 1 year rental, he's hitting FA next year, and will probably command a salary similar to Garcon, unless he explodes this year, in which case he might be looking for VJax money.
This is something that the FO should be on top of, just in case the bidding is all small potatoes like 4th and 5th rounders, in which case we should jump in.
His salary isn't too terrible for this year, it's something like half of Moss' money, so if we brought him on board we'd probably cut (and maybe re-sign) Moss and still have a few million left over (maybe to pay Fred Davis with?).
Also, OP may want to flesh out the first post.
someone to forgot to add "should we" to the thread title.
