Monday marked the first day of the offseason for the Vikings, as players cleared out their lockers at Winter Park while chatting with reporters.
As Vikings WR Percy Harvin was making his exit from the team’s practice facility, he spent a few minutes explaining to reporters his thoughts on the 2010 season as well as his personal evaluation of his own performance.
“Personally, I thought I took a couple steps forward,” Harvin said. “Even though we didn’t achieve our team goals, personally, a lot of the coaches and a lot of the players, (Jets CB) Darrelle Revis, (Packers CB) Charles Woodson came to me and they gave me great compliments. Yesterday, the Lions coach gave me great compliments so I think I made a stride in the right direction. I’ll go address myself and see where I need to work to be that much better.”
And getting better in the offseason is going to be a treat in its own right as Harvin acknowledged that he would be working out with a 13-year veteran CB who’s covered some of the greatest receivers to play the game.
“We actually had a quote from Charles Woodson, he told me that I was one of the best players he ever went against,” Harvin said. “I took that as a tremendous honor, so me and him will get together this offseason and work on some things.”
Harvin noted that he and Woodson haven’t worked out arrangements because the Packers are preparing for the postseason, but once the season is over they will “address it from there.”
