Percy Harvin‘s five-year contract with the Vikings will have to be redone after the league rejected it, but the wide receiver will not have to miss any time on the practice field as a result.
No one’s quite sure what exactly the league objected to in Harvin’s contract, which will pay the receiver $8.5 million in guaranteed money, but speculation is that there are some fancy clauses built into the deal that didn’t pass muster with the NFL suits. Some kind of bonus for every drug test Percy passes, maybe. Or a clause guaranteeing him more money if he goes a year without a hospital visit.
The $8.5 million guaranteed is, by the way, more than what Alex Mack, the man picked just ahead of Harvin, got in his deal. Now we know what that little hold-out was about.
