Not a good deal. In between the injuries and personality issues. It's too much of a headache. I understand we need to upgrade at most all positions. However, I also believe that this coaching staff is more than capable of finding talent w/out the hangups. Last years team was fueled by RGIII's notoriety and basically everyone else's talent. We've already done the talented super star thing and it hasn't panned out for us yet.
Through the heartache and pain. Here I remain, A Skinz fan for life....
Shouldn't this thread be moved to "Around the NFL"
Don't really think its a great idea, but i love the perception of how hes so injury prone because of the headaches...guy missed 3 games in his career until the ankle got him this year. He is a grinder who always shows on the injury report yet plays through the pain and produces for a team who runs him in the ground on kickoffs/punts/reverses/running plays and being a #1 WR...crazy how much they use him.
How about this. We sign Reggie Bush or Draft Tavon Austin? It'd be less risky. One will cost just the draft pick the other just the money and they could give you similar production.
I really like Harvin's game. I think over the next few years he'll be truly elite. I'd give up our second rounder. It's a huge risk, I'll admit it. But he's dynamic in a way that few players around the league are. When AP has been banged up, Harvin still produced and they found ways to get him involved. I think with a real offense and real QB (plus extension) and the off the field stuff won't be an issue.
I'd hope for a 3rd and a 6th and see if the Vikings bite. I just think he's a phenomenal player that adds a dimension that is rarely duplicated.
He was always a loose cannon but far from unmanageable. He is one of the greatest high school athletes of all time, he probably could have played in the NBA or competed in the olympics if he had chosen that path. I think he is worth a look, especially if we are talking about a 2nd rounder and maybe some bodies like Hankerson or Robinson. He has truly elite speed, our offense would be absolutely deadly with him and Garcon.
If we can trade a 3rd and a 5th for Harvin it would make us a Championship contending team now. Our defense during the win streak was playing a level that wouldn't get in the way for us going to the Superbowl. An upgrade at FS and with Rak, Carricker, and Merriweather coming back I see no reason why we wouldn't be.
