And I don't think the Vikings will pick up Hester. It's possible but Spielman is building a different team than in the past.
I think Harvin is becoming over-rated myself. He is a dynamic player and returner... but more of a gimmick play demon that #1 WR. He would look great as the #2-#3 guy on the depth chart. He will want to be paid like a star though and (IMO) not live up to the contract.
Now... all that said... Vikings are far too thin of a team to get by without him. The passing game is a total disgrace as-is... and Harvin is the only legit player on the unit outside Rudolph.
I believe Harvin is done as a Viking. I also believe that last season gave Spielman/Frazier an over-inflated impression of the team (we were not as good as our record). That leads me to believe this off-season will be disappointing. I can see us making a schlubb like Ramses Barden our "big signing".
