Thursday was a good day at Winter Park, for many reasons.
The Vikings wrapped up their mandatory minicamp and their successful nine-week offseason program with a late-morning practice under nearly ideal weather conditions. Voice of the Vikings Radio Network Paul Allen hosted his weekday 9-noon radio show from a deck outside of the Wilf office. Zygi and Mark Wilf were in the house to take in the action and visit with some VIPs.
Oh, and Percy Harvin was on the field and in good spirits after practice.
Harvin had voiced some displeasure earlier in the week and did not practice with the team on Wednesday. Vikings GM Rick Spielman met with reporters on Wednesday to address the situation, and Head Coach Leslie Frazier spoke with Harvin to work through the issues.
Harvin, one of the Vikings best players, returned to the field on Thursday and worked sharply with QB Christian Ponder and the offense. Following practice, Harvin (@Percy_Harvin) took to Twitter with a message that settled down much of the buzz.
Here is Harvin’s tweet: “I’m really clueless on the crazy reports…had great prac today ….to all my real fans and real vikes fans see u at Mankato..salute”
Harvin and several of his teammates are featured in this cool highlight video we posted after Thursday’s practice. Check it out.
