players like Harvin, who have been in the lg for 4 seasons or so and never played a complete season because of various injuries, these are players that shouldnt be valued too high

15 games in 2009, 14 in 2010, 16 in 2011, and 9 in 2012.

He was hurt last year which was really the only significant time that he has missed. Now I get why people are balking on a second round pick (which I may disagree with, maybe), but to think that he "shouldn't be valued too high" is a bit shortsighted. Like I mentioned earlier, his all-purpose yards make him one of the most productive players in the league. Even though he got hurt, he was still number 31 in all-purpose yards in the NFL last year. He was 8 in 2011. Now, I am too lazy to look at all the stats from every perspective, but suffice it to say that Harvin is a highly productive player any way you slice it. Check this piece out. My main issue with him is not his injury risk, but his attitude (which like his perceived risk of injury can be handled contractually, and realistically by Rivera).

Harvin has the threat level of a Darren Sproles.

You're right, I made a bad assumption he missed more games than he actually did. I remember the weird migraine fiasco a couple years

Many of you seem to be balking at the idea of a second, but if you look at his all-purpose yards, you would realize that Harvin is a beast. If we can get him at the right price (and the right period), he could easily turn into an excellent value with realistic, day-one game-changing impact.

Or you could end up spending most of what few draft picks we have left for a player that dominates for 9 games, misses the rest for migraines/injuries/behavior and ends up walking when our cap strapped front office can't justify using what little space we have left to resign him.

I assumed the same thing until my brother-in-law told me otherwise this past season (then, Harvin ironically did get hurt), so you aren't alone. Harvin is still a risk, but if I could snag him relatively cheaply, that would be a risk I'd be willing to take.

It's not just the draft picks, he wants an 8 figure a year contract. I wouldn't sign him for that much if he was sitting there in free agency, I sure as hell wouldn't give up high draft picks AND that contract for him.

From Rotoworld:

Citing a league source, Profootballtalk.com reports that Percy Harvin will skip all offseason activities so long as the Vikings haven't upgraded his contract.

This is the approach players seeking raises normally take. Per PFT, Harvin plans to sit out OTAs and minicamps as well as training camp if the Vikings don't meet his demands. The obvious alternative to paying Harvin would be for GM Rick Spielman to trade him to a club willing to commit eight figures per year and $30-plus million guaranteed. The financial implications are the main reason we don't expect Minnesota to receive a first-round pick for Harvin via trade.

Guess that puts him off the charts
