Due to a stellar season by Percy Harvin before he was injured and ultimately placed on IR, the Vikings star wideout is lined up to get a nice raise for the 2013 season. While it's likely not the payday the WR was waiting for, if he doesn't work out a new deal and ends up playing, he will get a nice raise anyway.
According to Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, Harvin managed to hit certain performance base payouts and will be in line to make almost $3 million with more incentive bonus possibilities.
Due to the very well known incidents that took place at the beginning of the 2012 campaign, many were skeptical he might try to hold out last season waiting for a big payday. Not only did he end up playing, but he led the team with 62 receptions and 677 yards even though he missed the last seven games of the regular season.
At the time of his injury, many were mentioning his name as a possible MVP candidate including possible MVP candidate Adrian Peterson, who claimed himself and Harvin were the Jordan's of the NFL.
While there has been grumblings about a few incidents that took place throughout the season leaving the future of Percy Harvin with the Vikings in doubt, recently both head coach Leslie Fraizer and team GM Rick Spielman have publicly stated the team has no issues with Percy moving forward. However, if the Vikings hope to keep Percy happy, a new contract with a few more 0's at the end may be required.
