Brad Childress says he’s not worried about Percy Harvin‘s health after the rookie wideout’s two well-publicized emergencies, one of which caused him to be sent home from the recent rookie symposium (meaning he missed Cris Carter‘s sermon about not being a jag-off).
“You always worry about health concerns and making sure you get those things taken care of,” Chilly said. “[Percy]’s going to be there next year and he may be even speaking next year because he’ll have a lap around the track at that point and time. He’ll be able to lend a different perspective for all those rookies.”
Yes, the NFL is making Harvin attend the rookie symposium next year. He’ll be the only second year guy in a room full of rooks, which is bound to be a tad humiliating. Like being held back a year in school.
Another thought on Harvin’s toughness (or lack thereof): The guy they’re bringing in to play quarterback – some Favre fella; don’t know if you’ve heard of him – is known to zip the ball into his receivers with a little extra mustard, occasionally leading to pain and dislocations. You know where I’m going with this: I hope to heck Harvin is tougher on the field than he seems to be off it. We don’t need our alleged dynamic new playmaker flinching every time #4 cuts loose with the fastball.
