Harvin requests trade, skips Vikings practice


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- 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 GM Rick Spielman says the team has no interest in trading its star receiver.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier declined to comment on Harvin's absence from practice and wouldn't say if he expects the star receiver to return on Thursday for the final day of practice.

Frazier says he remains confident the issues will be resolved before the team reports to training camp at the end of July.
