The saying "The rich get richer," would definitely apply if the San Francisco 49ers could land star WR/kick-returner Percy Harvin this off season. The 49ers, who finished the 2012 season five yards short of a Super Bowl title could strengthen their already potent offense if they landed Harvin.
Ever since the rumors started about the Vikings and Harvin parting ways due to a heated argument between Harvin and head coach Leslie Frazier, several teams have been rumored to be linked to a possible trade with the Vikings to obtain Harvin.
The inquisitr reported on Feb.13 that the 49ers may be interested in Harvin, but is the asking price too high?
“The Vikings are struggling with what to pay Harvin, who is signed only through 2013 and who is due for a contract extension. Any team that acquires him — he’ll likely want a top-wide receiver contract — will have to face the same issue. Meanwhile, Crabtree has two more years left on his rookie contract while Kaepernick is eligible to have his modest rookie deal renegotiated after next season.”
The Niners window of opportunity is open, but for how long? The NFC has sent a different team to the Super Bowl for the last 10 years, so you know the league is very competitive.
Do you think the 49ers will pursue Harvin?
