During training camp, Vikings rookie Percy Harvin said it was “a dream come true” to be playing in the NFL with a player such as RB Adrian Peterson. On Tuesday, with his team signing QB Brett Favre, the dream has continued.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be able to play with a Hall of Famer,” Harvin said today after practice. “I’m just blessed. It’s a tremendous honor in my first year to be able to play with guys of that caliber. But you add Brett to the equation and I couldn’t be in a better situation right now. Everything happens for a reason so I’m glad I’m here.”
Harvin also said that the presence of Favre on the team has already had an influence on him.
“He’s helped me out already and he’s only been here for a couple hours,” Harvin said. “There was one play when I ran an out (route)…we hooked up but there were some little things he gave me to make the route better or to help recognize the defense.”
But Vikings fans can be sure that the Favre-Harvin relationship will be a 2-way street. Favre will impart his knowledge on the young receiver, but Harvin also has a few tricks up his sleeve that will ease the veteran QBs transition to Minnesota.
“He said ‘make me look good’,” Harvin said of his encounter with Favre in Winter Park earlier today,”and I said I’d do my best.”
