The Percy Harvin Watch is officially over. On Sunday Harvin and the Vikings hammered out a five-year contract, and Harvin got his butt into Mankato to begin practicing – without puking or having to be rushed to the hospital with dehydration.
The terms of the contract have not been disclosed, so we don’t know yet what exactly Harvin and his agent Joel Segal got for their two day mini-hold-out. It has been assumed that Segal was trying to leverage more money out of the Vikes, in the form of incentive clauses, on the basis that Harvin was drafted well below where he would’ve been had teams not been leery of his potential character issues.
But you know the great thing? None of that really matters now. Harvin’s in camp, and we can begin enjoying breathless tweets about how fast he is and how quick he can cut. We’ll worry about the character bit down the road when he starts screwing up.
