GM: Harvin won’t be traded

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Percy Harvin didn’t participate in Minnesota’s mandatory minicamp practice Wednesday afternoon, a few hours after requesting a trade from the Vikings.

Harvin did go through a light walk-through practice with the team Wednesday morning, but he wasn’t present for the longer afternoon session that he participated in Tuesday.

Harvin has requested a trade for unspecified reasons. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says the team has no interest in trading its star receiver.

Coach Leslie Frazier declined to comment on Harvin’s absence from practice and wouldn’t say if he expects him to return Thursday for the final day of practice.
