EDEN PRAIRIE, MN (AP) - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says the team has no interest in trading Percy Harvin.
Spielman was reacting to word spread that the star receiver had requested a trade. Harvin voiced frustration with the Vikings on Tuesday at the first day of mandatory minicamp, but did not specify what was bothering him.
Harvin has two years left on his rookie contract. Spielman says he has spoken with Harvin's agent and considers the receiver a cornerstone of the rebuilding Vikings.
Meanwhile Adrian Peterson says he is still working his way back toward feeling normal after left knee surgery. The Vikings star running back is on track for training camp, but how much he can do and whether the team will let him play at the start of the regular season has yet to be determined.
Peterson spoke to reporters about his progress during Vikings minicamp.
