The troubles continue in Minnesota for star receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin is expected to hold out from offseason workouts and training camp if the Vikings don't give him a contract extension, Pro Football Talk reported Monday.

Harvin is expected to make $2.9 million in 2013. That's far less than other top receivers, and there's plenty of talk the disgruntled wide out wants big-time money. After all, Tampa Bay's Vincent Jackson - the top free agent wide receiver last offseason -- signed a five-year, $55.5 million deal last March.

Reports say the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin, who has had a rocky relationship with head coach Leslie Frazier and other players and coaches since he was drafted in the first-round back in 2009.

He could be appealing to a lot of teams, including the Seahawks. But 710 ESPN Seattle's Mike Salk says the price and the problems would be too much.

In today's Brock and Salk Show recap, Salk says even if Seattle could trade for Harvin, he's just not worth $10 million or more, especially with young stars like Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman looking at new deals down the road.
