Percy Harvin would look mighty fine wearing a St. Louis Rams uniform. You have to admit that, now matter how much of a fever dream that scenario is in reality. It is at least something Rams fans can dream about following Wednesday morning's news that Harvin has asked the Minnesota Vikings for a trade.

Clearly, the Vikings will not trade Harvin, who is set to make a mere $2.5 million over the last two years of his rookie deal. He told the press on Tuesday that he would not report to training camp unless some unnamed situations were resolved. Though he never said what, you can surmise that his contract is at issue.

A former first-round pick entering his fourth season in the NFL, Harvin makes considerably less than free agent addition Jerome Simpson, who gets $2 million not to deal weed in the Twin Cities this year, oh, and play football. Harvin gets $915,000 or so as the Vikings' top receiver.

Minnesota needs Harvin, but they did add some depth to their roster this year with Jarius Wright, Greg Childs and Simpson. They also have a very good tight end in Kyle Rudolph.

Daydreams. It is the offseason, and what else is there to do? Spend some time on your boss' dime thinking about Sam Bradford throwing to Harvin, or one of those tricky end-around plays with Harvin zooming out of the backfield.

If you really want to carry your fantasy to the next level, remember that the Rams have two first-round picks in each of the next drafts, though they would be foolish to use a first-rounder on him.
