Following up on the ongoing story
. ...Here’s what we know, based on June’s mini-camp, and a series of hard-to-follow proclamations. Harvin had issues. Then he didn’t. Maybe it was because of money. Or maybe not. Now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter just tweeted that Harvin would, in fact report when the Vikings show up to Mankato on July 26. Reported by Profootballtalk.com
We appreciate that early July is a slow news period. Which perhaps explains why anything Schefter says is currently considered news -- even if there's nothing really newsy about it other than it confirms what we already knew. Harvin, whatever issues he had notwithstanding, has clearly stated he'll be at training camp. HC Leslie Frazier and GM Rick Spielman have both said they expect him there. We expect him there. And now Shefter does, too. All that said, PFT's Darin Gantt points out we have nearly three weeks before then. And it Harvin's case, things do sometimes change. So stay tuned.
