It’s been seven years since Percy Harvin last played for the Vikings and there has been a lot of time for any wounds between the two parties to heal. Rick Spielman is still with the team, but Minnesota has a different head coach in Mike Zimmer and a much better quarterback in Kirk Cousins since the last time Harvin was with the team.
The fact that Les Pico is still with the Vikings could play a part in a potential reunion happening too. With him still working for the team, Harvin might be more willing to give it another shot in Minnesota.
If the Vikings are just looking to add another potential talented receiver to their roster before training camp, bringing in Harvin should be an easy decision. If his asking price is low enough, the risk is extremely low for Minnesota to give their former first-round pick another chance.
Bringing back Harvin will also depend on what the Vikings do during this year’s NFL Draft. The 2020 group of receiving prospects is supposed to be extremely deep and Minnesota has 12 picks to add some new pass-catchers to their roster.
There’s a good chance that the Vikings won’t need more receiving help after this year’s draft, which would mean a reunion with Harvin would be less likely.
Prediction: Harvin lands with a team outside of Minnesota
