Harvin To Work Out With Charles Woodson During Offseason

Posted by cjsiewert on January 4, 2011 – 2:25 pm

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.”

    Congrats to Harvin on another great season, he remained solid and worked hard all year. Most consistent player on the team, in my opinion.

    Great Job!

    I’m glad that some of the coaches of teams that didn’t play well are keeping their coaches. Marvin Lewis is a class act with a bunch of ego’s and delinquents. I was suprised to see Oakland dump Tom Cable. The team swept their division. I do wonder if Jerry Jones is waiting to see if Jeff Fischer will become available? We have the right guy in Frazier. We need to re-evaluate position by position.

    Packer fans are on here #1Because we’re the Greatest fans #2 Because we love hearing you all feeling sorry for yourselves. #3 And best of all we Love that you really thought you were going to a Superbowl with a washed up old man who cares only about himself. Now he tore your team apart and it’s off to Hattisberg.
    And by the way how did that little experiment work? 4 trips to the SB, 4 losses and you thought you’d get there with #4. Have a happy offseason!!! And why don’t you just get used to the Packer fans cuz we’re everywhere, we don’t crawl into the woodwork when things aren’t going so good

    ygirl: I don’t go to the Packer site, because Packer fans obviously don’t know diddly squat about football when they refer to Favre as a washed up old man. If you accidently learned something about the game, Favre might have had his best season, if we’d have had an O-line and his recievers. You disrespect yourself by being so ignorant.

    If that were true, then we would have heard from her before this post. The fact that it’s not true destroys all her credibility and proves Cariboo’s point of Schadenfreude. It really is a despicable way to live.

    Also last year I didn’t see you in this blog which wood were you crawling under, the washed up old man you refer to actually embarassed Puckers last year twice.

    Also the very young QB of yours lost your season against cardinals.

    Tell your QB not to run into CB’s he might be in mental hospital if he does that often sitting next to you in the same hospital that you are currently in.

    Packer fans are idiots! They had the greatest Packer of all time and kicked him out. They booed him instead of cheering for him when he came back as a Viking! He just wanted to play football! He loves the game! I was born a Packer fan and am now a Viking fan forever. The Viking organization, coach, fans, and players have my complete respect. The packer organization, coach, players and fans disgust me. They had the best and never deserved him. I wish he had been a Viking his whole career. Vikings will be back and beat the packers like last year. Brett, the greatest will be missed.

    So anyone watching the Sugar Bowl? It’s not giving me much more faith in Mallett’s skills. The few times that he hit his receivers they were dropping the ball. Other times he sits in the pocket too long and has too omuch trouble making something happen when the pocket breaks down. With the problems we have at O-line, I don’t think that this Mallett kid will be a good fit for the Vikings.

    That Pryor on the other hand was looking decent. Maybe I’ll get to see if Cam Newton would be better too when he plays next week.

    @Shawn – Yea I realized that, and that’s part of the problem! He’s going to have to be playing with their big brothers once he joins us, so it will be the same problems with a new team. I’d rather have a guy who can escape from the pressure and knows how to hit the guys who don’t drop the ball.

    Packer fans need to realize what happened that first Vike/Pack game in Greenbay when the refs kicked our butts, that’s right the refs not the Packers. If that game were called correctly, well then the low life Pack fans wouldn’t be on this site because the Pack wouldn’t be in the play-offs. Funny how things work. One team gets all the breaks, the other doesn’t.

  55. By Parody on Jan 4, 2011 | Reply

    The QB has been playing with these guys for at least 3 months. He should know by now who is going to catch the ball. Defenses leave guys like Berrian and Lewis uncovered because they know that they can’t catch the ball even if it’s a perfect throw. On the other hand you have guys like Rice who fight for the ball and often come away with it even in tight double coverage. A good QB will know that and take a chance every now and then.

  56. By Shawn on Jan 4, 2011 | Reply

    lol yes parody … but that is unacceptable thinking at the NFL lvl , if a WR cant catch you cant blame the QB he has enough to worry about

    CUT THE WR …

  60. By Parody on Jan 4, 2011 | Reply

    LoL – That was a pretty nice toss. Did you notice that he got the ball out quick that time? That’s something that I think has been missing with our QBs…they hang on to the ball too long hoping that someone will get open. Our receivers just aren’t good enough to do that, so you have to throw it to the small area on the field that the defenders can’t cover – that little hash between the receiver’s shoulder and the sideline. If you don’t do it soon enough, the play will be too far downfield for anybody to get it there accurately.

    So tell Mallett to keep that stuff up and I’ll start to swing in his favor.

    Hey All, This is my last post of the season. I have been defending Brett all season against these “sexual harrassment” allagations all season….but no more! Jen Sterger was one thing….with her putting ”everything out there”…. but these massage therapists did nothing to ‘ask for it”. I have been a Farve fan for 16 years…..but no more. I feel that if he weren’t distracted by the alllegations, he would have had a much better season. He brought this on himself. Don’t get me wrong… I think he was a great QB… just not a great man,

    To be honest I have been liking Mallett’s ball placement, but I have been trying to be as critical as I can. It would be a lot harder to be critical if he had better receivers out there tonight.

    @Sue – I know you said it was your last post…but are you really certain that the massage therapists are legit and not just trying to grab a share of the blood money? There’s a lot of shifty people out there, and they tend to always show up when an opportunity like this arises.

    The next thing we’re going to hear is a complaint from Brett’s shoe polisher: “I polished his shoes every month, and he insisted on wearing them while I polished them. The nasty part about it was that he always wore baggy shorts without any underwear….I swear he just wanted to flash his unit at me every chance he got! He should pay me $50k for having to look at that thing dangling in front of twelve times a year!!”

    I’m starting to think that Mallett is too strong for college. He throws it so hard that those kids can’t react fast enough or don’t have soft enough hands to catch it. It will be a good thing for the NFL though, as most of the good QBs rocket the ball into their receivers.

    same thing I was thinking Shawn – doesn’t look like the type of leadership we want on the team…he shuld have waited for a guy to get more separation towards the endzone, instead he threw it right at a defender, and for some reason the defender stuck to the ball that his receiver were dropping all day….I’d rather pin our hopes on Webb after what I saw today.

    I still am wondering why Newton and Locker aren’t on your list…but I also would still prefer to get a vet in here to mentor Webb. If his career doesn’t happen to pan out, there will always be decent draft choices in after this year. It’s not as if we need to find a franchise in 2011 or be stuck without one for another decade. Who knows, Luck and some other guys might not even declare this year!

    I didn’t see how bad his injury was, but he did have to sit out a play or two to get it wrapped up, so maybe the guys were carrying him off the field to take the pressure off his foot? Then again, maybe the team was just happy to beat the SEC for the first time in recorded history! Give them a break, they are still college kids. We shouldn’t expect them to be acting mature yet.

    But I did hear Pryor talk, and it didn’t really sound like he had much of a leader quality to him.

    You need to get your head out of the clouds on that Luck issue. The only way that the Vikings are getting him is if we trade away AP, Harvin and Rice. I wouldn’t want to give one of them up for the outside chance that Luck has Tom Brady skills. So let’s just set our hopes on more realistic opportunities.

If not, we can cut him loose. But this year the entire team underperformed, and I think it has a lot to do with how lacksidaisical (yea I know that was horrible spelling) in the offseason. I expect Frazier to make that one of his first priorities in righting the ship.

    Sidney Rice 26 starts in 4 years … thats not even 7 games a year but 14 came last season

    I agree we need to franchise him this year, and he needs to prove something next year but … Ill be watching very closely and I hope the coach does to

    Let’s just hope that he earns a big contract at the end of 2011. We need an ace WR on this team again.

    I agree Rice has potential but , I blame him for a lot of our issues this season … he should have been ready to play

    Speaking of…do you really believe that Berrian will get his act back together? He spoke of the need to get back to form, but how much effort is he going to put into returning to show any worth again (aka 2007, 08 type numbers)?

    I hate Berrian , I never understood the signing … then he had the 99 yard catch and I relaxed a little and hes showed his true colors again …

    I think Berrian would be a good #4 reciever but hes not a #3

    Yes he should have, but he was holding out for a bigger contract. The reason he didn’t get the contract was because of leadership. They wanted to spend every spare penny they could muster up to make sure that Favre came back one more year, even though it seemed he would have come back without a raise anyways. Leadership also didn’t put in nearly enough effort to keep the team in shape and connected to each other in the offseason. It all added up and showed big time when the season started back up. I hope that the new leadership can correct for these errors.

    So if not Berrian, who is our #3? Do you think that there’s a free agent in the mix that could take the role?

    Dámn…mike can never answer a question directly. I asked him if he knew anything about the trades we made (Sage & Darius to the Giants, Mitchèll to the Browns) and he just backed out and said the entire details of the trades haven’t been finalized yet…

    Well what about the parts that have been finalized? I’d be surprised to learn that the terms for at least two of the picks haven’t been set in stone for a month now…

    @parody-I think we got a 5th round pick and a 7th for sage and reynaud.

  128. By Parody on Jan 5, 2011 | Reply

    Carl – Thanks, that’s kind of what I remember, but I couldn’t find any site to confirm it. For some reason I thought I heard that we got a 2nd rounder from the Browns for Mitchèll, but that seems pretty high. Everything I can find on that trade says “undisclosed” pick. I don’t know what would hold them back from disclosing the pick now…

  129. By LAVikes on Jan 5, 2011 | Reply

    @ Parody I think that usally means the pick is dependent on season performance and isn’t determined until the season is over. It should be available soon.

MAYBE YOU CAN GET SOME OTHER WASHED UP QB NEXT YEAR.MAY YOUR FIFTY YEARS OF FUTILITY CONTINUE.ENJOY WATCHING THE PLAYOFFS.

    As stated in the other article about the 2011 roster looking very different from this years, get rid of Berrian, M. Williams, and T. Johnson. Sign back Greenway, Rice, Edwards, Leber, and P. Williams. Keep Camerillo(spell?)and next year please use him more! The guy can catch the ball great! He’s a Wes Welker. Also keep Sheppard, Walker.
