“I’m going to be honest with you guys. I’ve been watching tape, but it’s just working on things from last year,” Harvin said when asked about the offense. “I’m into it, but like I said, I’m not happy with things, so I haven’t really been in tune to (personnel) and stuff right now.
“Overall, just watching game film and breaking down quarterbacks, breaking down myself, defenses I may face that I faced last year, things like that.”
His role in the offense could be an issue. Despite being used in a variety of roles last season, Harvin often found himself on the sideline in the red zone. The Vikings could be using more two tight end formations this year with the addition of pass-catching tight end John Carlson to go along with Kyle Rudolph.
Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said he wasn’t aware of any issues Harvin had with the offense and pledged to use him even more this season.
“We’re looking forward to getting him on the field and as an offense we’re looking forward to having a better year,” Musgrave said. “That’s the bottom line.”
