Disgruntled Vikings WR Percy Harvin has requested a trade, according to reports. It's doubtful that the Vikings would make a deal because they're so thin at WR and playmakers on that offense. It's unclear why Harvin is unhappy, but Harvin is only due less than 3 million over the final two years of his contract, which might be the issue. If not traded, Harvin may holdout of the beginning of training camp.

Now Harvin has had some injuries to keep him off the field. In 2010 he had migraines that limited his playing time, and in 2011 he suffered bruised ribs, a stomach illness and other small injuries, but nothing major. In 2011 Harvin tallied 87 receptions for 967 yards and 6 touchdowns. Harvin also added a special teams touchdown and 345 yards rushing and 2 rushing touchdowns. So Harvin is a versatile playmaker who could be used all over the field as a playmaker. The Broncos are well aware of what Harvin can do, in the Broncos week 13 matchup, Harvin totaled 8 receptions for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns. Harvin single handily kept the Vikings in that game.

Now that Harvin is potentially on the open market, the question is, should the Broncos look into adding the versatile playmaker? The Broncos already have DT, Eric Decker and Andre Caldwell at WR, but after them it's a big question mark.

With the addition of Peyton Manning the Broncos know that their window to win a championship is small, and should be all in to add impact playmakers. Personally i think the Broncos should at least look into acquiring Harvin, but only if the price is right.

What do you guys think? Should the Broncos look into acquiring WR Percy Harvin?
