Harvin Impressing at OTA's


"It feels great," Harvin said. "There’s no better experience than what I’m going through right now. I’m glad to get the combine and all the stuff over with and finally lace it back up and get on the football field. It’s a wonderful feeling. … "I can’t tell you where I’ll end up.

They’re just trying to get me used to all the positions and I guess toward the end we’ll figure out what I’ll play."

Does Brett Favre Want To Play For The Vikings?


After just one season in New York, it appears Brett Favre will be out, as quickly as he came in.

Favre thought Minnesota would be a good place to play in then, and now Peter King thinks nothing has changed.
