According to Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports, wide receiver Percy Harvin told the Minnesota Vikings that he needs a better quarterback throwing him the ball than Christian Ponder. This is reportedly the main reason the Vikings decided to finally trade him.
According to two sources, the straw that broke the Vikings’ back with Harvin is when he bemoaned the fact that quarterback Christian Ponder, a 2011 first-round pick, was not good enough. That came even though Ponder consistently fed Harvin the ball.
Now Harvin will have Russell Wilson throwing him the ball in Seattle. That’s certainly an upgrade over Ponder.
