I am still in the process, as is Brett, of getting a grasp of all the details surrounding the Percy Harvin trade and contract before weighing in with my full opinion.

Running back Adrian Peterson isn’t waiting though, and his review isn’t glowing:

 

Peterson then put a little more of a positive spin on the situation by giving Harvin a friendly sendoff Twitter style:

 

Peterson is right to feel like he got kicked in the stomach.  The offense just took a big step backwards by losing a Pro Bowl receiver and high quality running back, not to mention the special teams just lost an All-Pro return man.  The Vikings are sure to take some steps forward on offense in the coming months, but the offseason started with one giant step backwards.
