Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Harvin is likely out for the remainder of the regular season and off the fantasy radar until 2014.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is listed as day-to-day. 'We'll find out Wednesday if he can go,' head coach Pete Carroll said on Harvin.
Huddle Up: Harvin has missed the last 2 games after his hip flared up, and he remains a risky fantasy proposition at best.

The Seattle Seahawks officially ruled WR Percy Harvin (hip) out for Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. Harvin did some running drills before practice earlier this week but hasn't practiced since Week 12.
Huddle Up: Be very wary of having Harvin available the rest of the regular season after it was revealed that he underwent a "little" procedure on his surgically repaired hip last week.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Harvin could miss the remainder of the regular season. Owners who stashed Harvin shouldn't expect him to contribute during fantasy playoffs.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'had a little procedure last week' after his hip injury flared up. He was inactive for Seattle's Monday night win over the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: This "little" procedure should be considered a big deal by Harvin's fantasy owners as it raises some serious questions about the WR's availability for the remainder of the regular season.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is active Monday, Dec. 2 for the team's game against the New Orleans Saints. The Seahawks are waiting to see how Harvin responds to cortisone injections. Holding him out for the remainder of the regular season is a real option, hoping to get him healthy for the playoffs.
Huddle Up: There was always a risk, of course, in relying on a player coming off surgery in the same season, but this nonetheless throws an untimely curveball at fantasy GMs who were banking on having Harvin available for the fantasy playoffs. The WR's availability looks like a week-to-week proposition, but at 10-1 entering Monday night's game, the Seahawks obviously are focusing on the long term, rather than the short term.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) doesn't expect to play in the team's Week 13 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 2, after receiving a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: In case you were hoping he would go tonight, here is an update. Again, this doesn't bode well for next week and beyond either, but keep an eye on Harvin's hip this week.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) received a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: This does not bode well for him the rest of the way.
Posted: 11/30/2013 7:42pm et
Updating an earlier report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Harvin suffered a setback to his hip injury and almost certainly won't play on Monday night against the Saints. His availability for fantasy playoffs could now be in jeopardy.
Posted: 11/25/2013 2:08pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he expects WR Percy Harvin (hip) to fully participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: This is excellent news if you have been holding onto him all this time. He should get into your lineup.
Posted: 11/18/2013 8:16pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not be limited in the offense moving forward and will be used as a kick returner.
Huddle Up: Harvin got a taste of action Sunday and now with the Hawks' Week 12 bye, he has 15 days to prep for Seattle's next contest -- a crucial Week 13 Monday Night Football showdown against the Saints.
Posted: 11/15/2013 9:03pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced Friday, Nov. 15, and expects to play in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I definitely think I'm ready to play,' Harvin said. 'I still have a lot of work to do, but it was great to be out there with my teammates running plays and going to the huddle. Hopefully everything goes well (Saturday) and I can look forward to the game.' He is officially listed as probable, but head coach Pete Carroll said a final decision will be made on Harvin Saturday, Nov. 16. Carroll is unlikely to use Harvin for kickoffs if he plays.
Huddle Up: Harvin will likely be on a snap count, so even though he has a great match-up against Minnesota, owners should probably leave Harvin on the bench until he has a game under his belt.
Posted: 11/15/2013 12:00am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 14, for the first time since having hip surgery Aug. 1. It's looking more likely that he'll make his season debut in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, his former team. 'He's in and out of his breaks really quickly,' QB Russell Wilson said. 'He's just a great football player. You want to give him the ball as much as you can. On our offense, we have so many guys that we can use. You add Percy into the mix and he brings a whole other explosive mentality to our football team.'
Huddle Up: Again, Harvin may play, but don't expect a lot of PT right out of the gate. It wouldn't be a total shocker, though, if the Hawks try to get him a TD against his ex-team.
Posted: 11/11/2013 8:11pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't ready to declare WR Percy Harvin (hip) a go for Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'He's going after it this week and we'll see how far we can take it,' Carroll said of Harvin. 'We'll call this Phase 3. We also have a chance to have all three (starting offensive linemen) back and Percy just adds to it.' Carroll said Harvin must practice every day this week in order to suit up this weekend.
Huddle Up: Being activated was only one step for Harvin, and his fantasy owners anxious to get him in the lineup will have to monitor practice reports coming out of the Northwest this week. Even if he does play Sunday, though, expect a limited role for the wideout right out of the gate.
Posted: 11/11/2013 5:39pm et
The Seattle Seahawks have activated WR Percy Harvin (hip) from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Don't get too excited—he could be limited in his first game action of the season—but he does have a nice matchup, and it's against the Vikings to boot. Revenge is a dish best served in Week 11 of the 2013 season?
Posted: 11/6/2013 5:00pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) had a great workout Wednesday, Nov. 6, but he won't practice with the team. Head coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is in Phase 2 of his rehab.
Huddle Up: It seems Harvin might not be back just yet. Monitor his status throughout the week.
Posted: 11/1/2013 8:29pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) underwent an MRI this week but it did not show any problems. Carroll said Harvin was sore from the practices last week.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are still hoping Harvin can return in the next couple of weeks. Fantasy owners should hang onto him for the stretch run.
Posted: 11/1/2013 1:55pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 'Percy won't play this week,' Carroll said. 'He's getting close, but not close enough.' The team has two weeks to activate Harvin from the Physically Unable to Perform list. WR Jermaine Kearse will start this weekend.
Huddle Up: At 7-1, the Seahawks have no need to rush Harvin back into actio. Meanwhile, his fantasy owners have waited this long, so what's another week or 2?
Posted: 10/29/2013 7:39pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll labeled WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'day-to-day,' and the team is unsure if he can make his debut in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: With Sidney Rice reportedly out for the season with a torn ACL, the 'Hawks could use Harvin more than ever. The rehabbing wideout, however, had a minor setback this past week when his surgically-repaired hip flared up in workouts, but indications still point toward a return in the next week or so.
Posted: 10/26/2013 5:05pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) won't play in Week 8.
Huddle Up: There were reports that Harvin could return this week but that would have been a best-case scenario. Still, it's looking like Harvin will back in the Seahawks' lineup some time in the next couple of weeks.
Posted: 10/24/2013 11:38am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) has to have a normal week of practice in order to have a shot at playing in Week 8. "He's got to get through normal days of practice and we'll see how he handles it," Carroll said. "With the thought we've been going with all along is to take the conservative approach and make sure our guys are healthy and so we're going to continue to do that. We've waited this long to get him here; to this point. So we'll just continue to take our time and see how he goes. The workload will increase, as we go through the week and next week and all that and we'll just see what happens."
Huddle Up: It was easy to get excited about Harvin's return to practice, but the Seahawks have no need to rush him back to the lineup so it could be an excruciating wait for those who have stashed Harvin on their fantasy rosters. So close, yet so far away.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 22, and is itching for his return to the field. 'I want to play as soon as possible,' Harvin said. 'But we're trying to be smart about it and we have a plan in place. I know one pace, and that's full stride, so it's been tough. At the same time, I have to take progressions to not have any setbacks and hurt the team any further.' Harvin said his hip is feeling great and he has no issues with it at all. Head coach Pete Carroll plans to be cautious with Harvin, and they want him to get through a full week of full practices before they'll be comfortable letting him play.
Huddle Up: He could be back this week, but Rob Gronkowski taught us to temper expectations. Play it so that Harvin is a pleasant surprise for your roster if he does play.
Posted: 10/22/2013 11:44pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip), who returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 22, could return to play in Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams Monday, Oct. 28, according to a league source. Whether he plays will depend on how his hip responds to practice this week. The team has three weeks to let him practice without activating him to the active roster.
Huddle Up: The guy is only a few months removed from hip surgery, so the best guess remains later rather than sooner for his return, but who knows, Harvin could have picked up some of Adrian Peterson's remarkable recuperative powers during his time in Minnesota.
Posted: 10/21/2013 11:12pm et
The Seattle Seahawks plan to take a cautious approach with WR Percy Harvin (hip), who will return to practice this week. The team will now have three weeks to decide whether to take him off the Physically Unable to Perform list and add him to the active roster. Head coach Pete Carroll does not want to bring him back until he's 100 percent ready to play.
Huddle Up: Harvin reportedly looks good but look for the Seahawks to use all 3 allotted weeks to give their prize offseason acquisition a full evaluation.
Posted: 10/17/2013 1:39pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is scheduled to return to practice next week and should play sooner, rather than later.
Huddle Up: If you haven't already made a preemptive strike on your league's waiver wire, it's likely too late.
Posted: 10/11/2013 11:25am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin began running last week and has returned to Seattle to continue his rehab. The team doesn't expect him to be ready to play in Week 7, when he's eligible to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Harvin's return in Week 7 is even an option, as initial reports placed his return closer to mid-November.
Posted: 9/9/2013 9:59am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has wowed his surgeon with his recovery to this point, and is ahead of schedule in the process. The team is hoping for a December return, but he could return sooner if he continues to make progress at his current pace.
Huddle Up: Earlier talk of Week 7 still seems aggressive, but it now looks like the Seahawks will have Harvin back for their playoff push--perhaps even in time for Harvin to be a contributor in the fantasy playoffs as well.
Posted: 8/27/2013 8:15pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip surgery) was placed on the Physically Unable To Perform List on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: It's a bit of a surprise that it wasn't the IR/Designated to Return list. This means Harvin will be eligible to return after Week 6, but no one -- aside from Harvin himself -- expects the WR to be able to play until late in the season, if at all this year.
Posted: 8/16/2013 8:08pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team does not have a timetable for WR Percy Harvin's (hip) return but did say the surgeon was encouraged with how the hip was responding days after the surgery. 'We're hopeful, whatever that means. We won't know, it's going to take a good month before we can figure if he's even going to have a chance to come roaring back out of it, but it looks like all of the signs are very good. So we'll see what that means, but we're not putting any weeks on it. We don't know,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are hoping Harvin can return at some point this season but that would likely be some time after Thanksgiving at the earliest. It will be difficult for fantasy owners to burn a roster spot on Harvin unless your league has a couple of IR designations where you can use one to stash him.
Posted: 8/1/2013 5:27pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) underwent successful hip surgery Thursday, Aug. 1, and hopes Harvin will be able to return at some point this season. Harvin will rehab in New York for a few weeks before returning to Seattle to continue his recovery. The injury could mean a bigger role for WR Golden Tate, and he could end up being a kickoff return option. RB Christine Michael could also be asked to return kicks in Harvin's absence.
Huddle Up: Whatever the timetable, count on it being months, not weeks, and in the meantime fantasy GMs need to go back and focus on QB Russell Wilson and the health of his 2012 cast of pass-catchers as that will be what Seattle has to work with in Harvin's absence.
Posted: 7/31/2013 12:50pm et
Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin will go on the Physically Unable to Perform list and can return to practice between Week 6 and Week 11. He'd have to be activated by Week 14 or go on Injured Reserve. The team is shooting for a Week 13 return.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks and Harvin both remain optimistic that he won't miss the entire season because of his hip injury, and the PUP list gives them a little more flexibility with regards to when he can come back.
Posted: 7/31/2013 10:41am et
The Seattle Seahawks hope to get WR Percy Harvin back for the Dec. 2 game on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. The earliest Harvin can go on Injured Reserve (designated to return) is Sept. 3. He has to be out for eight weeks. He can begin practicing six weeks after Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: With Harvin undergoing surgery on his hip, the Seahawks remain hopeful that he'll be able to come back before the end of the regular season. It would be tough to keep a roster spot for essentially the entire fantasy regular season in hopes of Harvin returning for your playoffs, but if your league's roster size is big enough it's not out of the question.
Posted: 7/31/2013 12:27am et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin posted on his official Twitter account Tuesday, July 30, that he requires surgery for his hip. The estimated recovery time is three to four months, according to a source close to Harvin. He could still end up on short-term Injured Reserve, and return at some point this season.
Huddle Up: Fears have been realized in the Northwest, leaving the 'Hawks without their top offseason acquisition for much of 2013 and leaving fantasy GMs without one of the game's most versatile and productive wideouts for most -- if not all -- fantasy seasons.
Posted: 7/27/2013 11:00pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin could have several options to consider regarding his hip injury depending on what the second opinion reveals. "We are just going to have to wait and see and it's everything that he might be to come back and be ready to go," Carroll said. "There may be some procedures that are needed to take place. There are a number of different ways that that could happen in the lengths of the recovery and what has to take place. So it's uncertain right now." Carroll said Harvin will not necessarily miss the entire season if he does need surgery.
Huddle Up: There are reports that Harvin has been cleared by team doctors but isn't comfortable with that decision and wants another opinion. At this juncture all anyone can do is wait for that second opinion early next week and see what Harvin decides.
Posted: 7/26/2013 6:13pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin would be facing a 10- to 16-week rehab if he needs surgery on a possible tear in his labrum. The recovery time likely would be more if bone resurfacing is involved in the surgery. The team still does not know if Harvin will need surgery to repair the injury.
Huddle Up: Harvin's official second opinion is slated for early next week, at which point the Seahawks will know the availability of their major offensive offseason acquisition.
Posted: 7/26/2013 11:22am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin could miss the entire 2013 season if the second opinion on his injured hip is the same as the initial opinion. The doctor who initially examined Harvin recommended surgery.
Huddle Up: It's early yet, but all the signs point towards Harvin needing some sort of surgery that would keep him off the field anywhere from three months to the entire season. Tough break for a team with designs on a Super Bowl run; also a fantasy hit for those who have drafted Harvin already, not to mention the fantasy value of quarterback Russell Wilson this year.
Posted: 7/25/2013 5:48pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin may have a slight labrum tear in his hip. Harvin is scheduled to have a second opinion on a hip issue next week. Harvin was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform List Thursday, July 25.
Huddle Up: Potentially disastrous news for Harvin's fantasy owners and Seahawks fans alike as this could, at the worst, necessitate season- ending surgery for the wideout who was acquired from the Vikings in exchange for 3 draft choices and then signed a 6-year, $67 million deal with his new team. Everyone above now will be anxiously awaiting this second opinion.
Posted: 7/19/2013 2:08pm et
The Seattle Seahawks are expected to give WR Percy Harvin some carries this season because he is familiar with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's system. Harvin could receive two or three carries a game, mostly in the red zone. Harvin could also often be used as a decoy during plays.
Huddle Up: Harvin saw similar touches in Minnesota, and Bevell's familiarity with Harvin's skills should allow the Seahawks to incorporate some of those same types of plays into their current playbook. But Marshawn Lynch fans can't be happy about Harvin potentially stealing some red zone carries.
Posted: 5/24/2013 12:32am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin will be used similarly to how he was used by the Minnesota Vikings, in a variety of ways. He'll likely line up in the slot as his regular position, but he'll also be utilized outside and could see handoff and kickoff returns. 'I'll be moving around - pretty much all around,' said the 5-foot-11, 184-pound Harvin. 'There'll be a little bit of running back coming up. But right now, we're just trying to get the foundation set, just running the base plays, and we'll see where it goes from there.'
Huddle Up: Harvin's rushing ability is particularly valuable to fantasy players as he leads all NFL wideouts with 683 rushing yards and 4 rushing TDs since he entered the league in 2009. Now if he can only stay healthy . . .
Posted: 3/13/2013 5:27pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin will be used as a kick returner next season.
Huddle Up: Harvin is explosive in that role, but if he is to be as big a part of the offensive game plan as expected he may only see part-time duty in the return game. Those whose leagues give points for return yardage shouldn't bump Harvin up too much based on aggressive expectations.
Posted: 3/11/2013 2:42pm et
The Seattle Seahawks will trade a 2013 first-and seventh-round draft choice as well as a 2014 middle-round draft choice to the Minnesota Vikings in the trade involving WR Percy Harvin. Harvin will have to pass a physical to complete the trade.
Huddle Up: The Vikings couldn't put up with (take your pick) Harvin's salary demands, attitude, and/or injury history, and they were all but forced to trade him. The Seahawks acquire one of the league's most dynamic skill position players for a modest collection of picks; he'll give Russell Wilson a real weapon in the passing game... as long as he's healthy, happy, and well-compensated. Minnesota, meanwhile, will likely use one if not both of their first-round picks to upgrade a wide receiver corps that ranked 28th last year in fantasy production and brings back just 16% of that group's receptions (Jarius Wright and Stephen Burton).

According to league sources, Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin has informed the team he doesn't want to play for them and wants to be traded. Harvin is signed through this season, and general manager Rick Spielman has made it clear the club won't trade Harvin. The team could also play hardball by retaining his services by making him a franchise player next season and the following season if they so chose.
Huddle Up: Aside from not playing or being a locker room cancer--two things he's already done plenty of in Minnesota--Harvin doesn't have much leverage. The Vikings could indeed franchise him twice and keep him around for three more seasons; can you imagine the hissy fit that would lead to? Harvin has done a good job of torpedoing his trade value, to the point that it doesn't make much sense for the Vikings to unload him for far less than what he's worth. Stay tuned to this channel for the next episode of "As the Harvin Turns".

Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin reportedly threatened to walk out on the team last offseason after hearing that New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez received a contract extension after only two years. Harvin is looking to be paid similar to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (eight years, $132 million).
Huddle Up: Each week seems to bring a new behind-the-scenes tale of Harvin's dissatisfaction with the Vikings, his contract, or just life in general. Couple that with the news that Harvin wants Megatron money and you have a bonus episode of "As the Harvin Turns".
Posted: 3/8/2013 11:38pm et
Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin is seeking a deal similar to the eight-year, $132 million deal Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson signed. That's an average of $16.5 million a year. As one person put it about Harvin, he considers himself a "special" player and executives around the league have fed that attitude by telling people close to him how difficult it is to cover Harvin.
Huddle Up: Tough to see the Vikings giving Harvin that kind of money, which makes signing an extension prior to the final year of his contract unlikely. The Vikings could opt to franchise Harvin next season to keep him around, but if he has already threatened to walk out he wouldn't be happy with that situation. Stay tuned for the next episode of "As the Harvin Turns".
Posted: 2/15/2013 3:27pm et
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the team "has no intent" of trading WR Percy Harvin and that they expect him to report to training camp like the rest of their players.
Huddle Up: Tune in Monday for the next episode in this soap opera, which will run until the Vikings either get Harvin's signature on a contract extension or trade him to another team.
Posted: 2/13/2013 11:24pm et
Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin is not planning to hold out at this point, according to a team source. "As far as holding out, that's not something that I've heard he definitely will do at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're throwing out threats - that's what agents do," the source said. "However, when you are under contract the team controls the situation, not the player. I hope he doesn't think a tactic like that would work if that's what he's thinking."
Huddle Up: The Harvin soap opera won't go away any time soon, at least not until the Vikings either extend his contract or trade him away. From the sounds of it, Minnesota's front office is willing to call Harvin's bluff on a holdout--if he is indeed thinking of holding out. Stay tuned for tomorrow's installment of "As The Percy Turns".
Posted: 2/13/2013 11:44am et
Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin has told at least one teammate he wants to be paid among the top three wide receivers in football.
Huddle Up: Harvin was a viable MVP candidate over the first half of last season, but his injury history won't help him land a big deal. And if he's going to be tough to sign he'll be even tougher for the Vikings to trade given that he's only under contract through the 2013 season.
Posted: 2/13/2013 11:44am et
A pair of NFL executives speaking about a potential trade of Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin said Tuesday, Feb. 12, they would be shocked if the team were able to land anything better than a third-round pick in the NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Harvin is talented enough to command a much larger package, but his injury history, impending free agency, and attitude issues raise red flags for any team looking to acquire him. Rick Spielman and the Vikings have their work cut out for them if they're set on dealing Harvin this offseason.
Posted: 2/12/2013 1:10pm et
The San Francisco 49ers could show interest in Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin if he becomes available in a trade this offseason. The 49ers are expected to have around 13 or 14 picks in the 2013 NFL Draft and could use some in a possible trade.
Huddle Up: San Fran seemingly would be a good fit for the disgruntled Harvin as the Niners are searching for a complement for wideout Michael Crabtree. That would give the Niners an offense featuring Crabtree, QB Colin Kaepernick, RB Frank Gore, TE Vernon Davis and Harvin -- scary, scary stuff for opposing defenses.
Posted: 2/9/2013 11:24pm et
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman provided non-answers Friday, Feb. 8, when asked about the future of WR Percy Harvin with the team. When asked whether the team plans to offer Harvin a contract extension before the start of the 2013 season, Spielman replied, "I'm not going to say what's going to happen this offseason, because he is going in to the last year of his contract. But right now, where we're at, Percy Harvin is a member of this football team and he is a very good football player. We don't like to get rid of good football players." When asked if he wants Harvin on the 2013 team, Spielman said, "We love Percy Harvin as a football player. Everybody sees what he does for our football team."
Huddle Up: The Vikings have gone out of their way not to bad-mouth Harvin, but the lack of a contract extension lends credence to the rumors that there is friction between Harvin and the Vikings' administration. With Harvin entering the final year of his contract, the time is now for Minnesota to commit to him long-term by coughing up the money--or unload him before he walks via free agency. Should be an interesting offseason in Minnesota.
