The Minnesota Vikings are confident WR Percy Harvin will attend training camp next month after a recent report that he was threatening to hold out and request a trade. Harvin has two years left on his rookie deal and will make $915,000 in base salary this season. The Vikings are concerned about Harvin's reckless style of play, which leaves him prone to injuries. "His snaps may go up, but his touches, I don't know about that," head coach Leslie Frazier said. "We do want to keep him on the field more (because) people defend us different when he's not on the field. So we'd like to keep him on the field more. But his style, he is a reckless guy, he doesn't hold anything back and it's always 100 miles an hour. So you have to be careful of not overusing him and you have to be mindful of that."
