Look at it this way....the recruits who just signed were in 5th grade the last time another conference won a title. SEC > Bucks.

We could have had Harvin in the 09 draft if it weren't for that ill fated trade. Sad thing is Jerry probably would have drafted him over Oher.

Austin for Harvin? In a heart beat.


I just don't get they hype with Harvin. He's a migraine prone diva who has no particularly defined skill set, who isn't as fast as advertised, and will be in the final year of his contract. He'd miss just as much time as our current WR with the exploding hamstrings.


Correct. But he is a Gator.


Have you ever seen me openly pursue a Wolverine? The only one whom I've ever said I wanted to draft was LaMarr Woodley. And he doesn't suck. Harvin does.


While this may be true - I am very anti-Gator WR's. But I do like Harvin. I think we would have won another championship had he stayed.

Plus, it would be nice to have a decent return game.

As much as I would love to have Harvin on this team...I couldn't ever justify giving him anything more than a #2 players deal. Which he doesn't want:

Quote:
Percy Harvin considers himself one of the NFL's top wide receivers and should be compensated accordingly, a Minnesota Vikings team source told ESPN's Josina Anderson Wednesday.

The source said Harvin is angling for a deal in the ballpark of the Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson (eight years, $132 million) and the Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald (eight years, $120 million).


http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000138844/article/minnesota-vikings-source-wants-to-keep-percy-harvin

So now that we've established we wouldn't even be able to keep him past this year, keeping in mind if we could financially make it work I'd be all for it but it won't happen, I say we trade Austin for a 2nd or more likely a 3rd, make room, and sign another Vet and move on.

Dez has everything needed to carry the outside load while Witten is still producing like he is and being schemed for, and we need to focus on improving our offensive and defensive fronts. We've got plenty of weapons offensively without needing to hunt for more unless they literally fall in our laps.

Harvin is a superior talent to Austin. That said he will never be a Cowboy. Time to look elsewhere to replace Austin.
