Default What would Denver have to give up to get Percy Harvin?

What would Denver have to give up to get Percy Harvin?

He was a first rounder when the Vikings drafted him, and he's lighting things up. Just curious what you think it would take to pry him away from Minnesota. His contract runs through 2012.

Would a first round pick even be enough? Or would they want more picks...or a player, too?

They're certainly going to want more than our #32 pick in the first round, I can tell you that.

Then some of our friends here will point to that 32 pick as more evidence that Tim Tebow is destroying the Denver Broncos.

Why would we want Percy Harvin?

Seriously, we're fine, we need to address other issues in the draft next year.
Also, why people think Minnesota wants to get rid of Harvin?

That's like going to another's team board and reading what would it take to get Von Miller from the Broncos?

This will never happen. I am just asking you guys to be armchair General Managers.

I'd give up a first rounder and a conditional third or fourth rounder the following year.

Harvin's name came up in trade talks before the trade deadline, so it isn't a lock he will be a Viking long term. Harvin had a great game against the Broncos, but hasn't had much of a season so far. If the Broncos could trade down and get extra picks, dealing a 2nd or 3rd for him would probably be enough to get him at this point. The Broncos could use a WR with great speed and he played with Tebow in college, so familiarity is there too.

A deal might be doable after the end of next year. I think Percy'll only have one year left on his contract at that point, and if it becomes clear he's leaving after that, the Vikings might look to deal him to get something in return. You could maybe say they'd be open to trading him before next year's deadline, but that would have to assume they have another miserable start like they did this year.

Besides that one claim on Twitter, where did his name come up in trade talks?

I don't remember the source(s) but I remember something about his missing games and such as a reason why they may look to deal him.

I'd rather go with the idea a poster had last week. Rather that give up all sorts of goodies for Harvin, go out and draft Denard Robinson in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.

But isn't Harvin money in the bank? A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush.

Rather go for 1 in the bush and use that 1st on Hightower or a corner.

Mainly Minnesota would have to hire McD as head coach and give him GM duties also so they would make such a stupid trade. Their only offensive spark plug except for AP.

A first would be the minimum, and that if you were a top 5 pick.

Not going to happen except in fantasy leagues.

LSU WR Russell Shepard will forgo his senior season and enter the 2012 NFL draft.

Underutilized as a kind of H-back in the Tigers' run-heavy offense, the explosive Shepard managed just 52 receptions for 473 yards and five touchdowns in three seasons in Baton Rouge. He did rush 84 times for 572 more yards (6.81 YPC) and four additional scores. The nation's highest rated dual-threat QB recruit in 2008, Shepard is an incredible athlete with a 41 1/2" vertical and 11-foot-2 broad jump on record. The 6'1/185-pounder should have a big Combine and may turn out to be a better pro than college player.


Haven't seen much of this guy's play, but the Rotoworld blurb combined with his stats and physique sound like he could potentially fill the Harvin role in this offense

If Brandon Marshall was worth a 2nd and a 3rd (drop a future pick one round), then Harvin is worth a 1st alone.

People want a gadget player, and honestly... I can see why. Thomas' heroics Sunday aside, we don't have many explosive, versatile players. Eddie Royal is supposed to be one, but he's too erratic.

I was all about us bringing in Sproles when he was available.

I think people just want game-breakers to take the pressure off of Tebow. Harvin seems to fit that bill.

Whether in the return game or on offense, I think fans here want to see us with a Hester/Harvin/Sproles type of freak that other teams have to account for. I can see the logic.

He's a better version of Eddie Royal. You can get him the ball in a lot of places on the field and he can make things happen. He's what everyone wish Eddie Royal could be and maybe more.
