Report: Harvin had 'heated' chat with Frazier before hitting IR

The Minnesota Vikings and coach Leslie Frazier continually have said Percy Harvin's placement on season-ending injured reserve was purely due to the ankle injury that hadn't healed as expected. As is often the case with Harvin, the story isn't quite so simple.

Four NFL sources told ESPN Twin Cities' Tom Pelissero there was a "heated exchange" between Frazier and Harvin in front of Vikings players and staff members in the training room before the decision was made.

While some "inside and outside" the Vikings' building believed the confrontation was the reason for the IR designation, one source said the team and Harvin's agent already had started talking about placing Harvin on IR before the incident. But that doesn't mean other factors didn't eventually come into play.

There have been several issues with Harvin in Minnesota since he was drafted No. 22 overall in 2009. He missed numerous practices the first two years due to migraines. Harvin abruptly demanded a trade during the Vikings' June minicamp before backing off the request. He was kicked out of practice by former coach Brad Childress in 2010 after being accused of not giving full effort. The two were separated, and the confrontation continued into the weight room, where a witness said Harvin threw a weight.

More recently, Harvin was seen screaming at Frazier during a Week 9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Harvin is rehabilitating near his Florida home, but he said on Nov. 21: "I'm ready for this next stretch. I should be good." He never went through a full practice afterward and was placed on IR two weeks later. Frazier said the decision "helps us all" despite the fact the Vikings were losing one of their top two offensive players during a playoff push.

The 2012 handling of the wide receiver is over, however it actually went down, but 2013 is a contract year, and Harvin said he won't report to camp without an extension. Does he still even want one from Minnesota? Would the Vikings consider a trade? Harvin was in the MVP discussion before the injury.

Stay tuned.

Hes always hurt and has the rep of a cantankerous beech .....give him big $ and he could be our next Ray Edwards, no thank you....

being hurt doesn't make you a cancer. I have never seen anything about him acting out until this article. He is the second best player on that entire team and you seriously compare him to Edwards. We won't get him either way but I honestly think you are waaaaaayyy off. No matter where he goes, he will continue to beast it out. What other major injuries has he had though

I aint giving him no money so that's not my concern. Last I checked he has been an absolute baller since he has been in the league and that's what matters most. He's human just like us. He's entitled to do whatever he wants to do. Obviously his rants haven't been that severe seeing that he is still a Viking after all these years.

we all know he aint coming here simply because of the money issue. He's gonna get paid and be the same player he has always been. I can't speak on his personal issues. How is the bolded part wrong. We aren't entitled to do whatever we want to do as humans? I don't know about you but I tend to do whatever I want and that I am asked to do

I'm sorry, but you aint the brightest bulb on the tree are you bro ? .......you 27 ? ...man thats plain scary.....

pretty sure I'm not the only way that lives life like that. It's okay though I understand. Harvin is a baller though. I'll let you worry about his off the field issues and ill credit the things that go on during games. He will be successful where ever he goes
