According to John Clayton, "Seattle will receive a conditional draft pick in 2015, which will range from a second- to fourth-round pick".

Wow, that's pretty surprising after giving up so many picks to get him plus giving him the huge contract he wanted...they must have really wanted him out of the locker room to ship him out for such little in return. I'm not cap expert, but maybe they decided the cap room his contract was eatting up was going to be better spent resigning some of their other players??

It does make me feel a lot better about the Vikes moving him. :smilevike:

Pretty sure this is a feather in Spielman's cap considering Seattle's meager compensation.

Noooo! Harvin is an amazing non-injury prone player who should never have been traded in the first place and the locker room stuff is just the media making things up as usual! Right? Where are those people? :confused:

Player demanding to be traded because of the worthless QB you drafted and the coaches and you trade him = Feather in cap? Psssffhhhhhh. No wonder so many people seem fine with Spielman.

Upon hearing the news of the trade, Percy developed a headache and is expected to miss the next 8 weeks. :mrgreen:

How is it playing both sides? It was clear for quite some time he should have been traded, and wasn't, and people beat the drum he was untradeable, wasn't injury prone, some amazing weapon, etc.

He finally forces a trade, and the GM is a genius for giving him it.

How can you not give credit to a GM for trading away a WR with injury issues, off the field issues and no 1000 yard receiving seasons who as you have said was forcing his way off the team for a 1st, 3rd and 7th round pick? Spielman deserves credit for getting enormous value in that situation, which is only emphasized by the fact that barely a year after the trade, the Seahawks got far less value for Harvin.

It amazes me the lengths people will go to deny Spielman any praise, no matter the situation. Good draft picks/trades/signings/etc. are always chalked up to "obvious decisions that he deserves no credit for". Of course, any and every move he makes that does not work, no matter how minor, must be placed on his shoulders, and be brought up and continuously repeated. But how dare anyone give him any credit for something positive, he is incapable of ever making a good decision unless it's so obvious that anyone in the whole world would do it. (Case in point, Matt Kalil. Rookie season - "Spielman deserves no credit, that was an obvious pick anyone would have made." 3rd season - "Spielman sucks at drafting, look at Kalil"

I suspect it means that all draft announcements from the podium should have always, and always in the future, should say "With the Xth pick, the Minnesota Vikings, after consulting Demi, because he is so much smarter than anyone else, pick ...."

Because he didn't do it due to all the other issues, he hung onto him until he refused to stay with the team....how can you give someone credit for doing something when they had no other choice?

He had a choice. He could have paid him what Percy thought he was worth, and then we would be #### now about how Rick made a bad move and paid him too much money.

Because he had a choice and because he negotiated a good deal, particularly under the circumstances.

The Vikings knew they couldn’t coexist with the highly talented, but at time high maintenance, Percy Harvin. They bought high (2009 first-round pick) and somehow sold even higher (2013 first-round pick, plus more), getting real value from a guy they so badly wanted to trade that G.M. Rick Spielman declared publicly and loudly that the Vikings had “no intent” to trade him.


Does anyone even remember what was going on at that point in time? :confused:
There was no chance he wasn't traded, and instead of trading him at a time his stock was high, he waited until every team in the NFL knew he was available, and was disgruntled.

What is tripping you up here? Yes, we remember what was happening at the time. That's why Spielman deserves kudos for getting so much in return for a disgruntled player who wanted out of Minnesota. As the quote above says, they bought high and sold higher. You don't see how that's a net positive for the organization, especially under those circumstances?

We turned him into Rhodes and McKinnon. Sneaky Pete and John Schneider gave him 20 million to play ten games and got a mid round pick back for him. I will be as damn smug as I want, thanks very much doc.
