Cleveland Not Interested In Vikings' Percy Harvin

Percy Harvin wants out of Minnesota, but don't expect him to end up in Cleveland. The Browns may need an upgrade at wide receiver, but even if Vikings general manager Rick Spielman backs down from his assertion that he won't trade Harvin, it is unlikely that Cleveland would be interested, via Tom Reed of The Plain Dealer.

It's believed the Browns do not have interest in acquiring the wideout, who reportedly asked for a trade after citing multiple grievances with the Vikings on Tuesday.

Many outside the organization believe the Browns could use an upgrade at the position. The team was tied atop the NFL in dropped passes last season. But dealing for the versatile Harvin -- who caught 87 passes for 967 yards and six touchdowns last season, while rushing for an additional 345 yards -- is not expected to be in their plans.

One reason for Cleveland's lack of interest may be that Harvin reportedly had a rocky relationship with Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress, formerly the coach of the Vikings.
