Percy Harvin And Charles Woodson To Workout In Offseason
With a career spanning 13 years, Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson has matched up against some of the best receivers in the game. From Marvin Harrison to Calvin Johnson, the reigning defensive player of the year has shut down even the most elite receivers. So when Woodson speaks of another player’s talent, it’s safe to say it is well deserved.
So who is “one of the best players” Woodson has ever lined up against? None other than Vikings’ wide receiver Percy Harvin. In fact, Woodson is so fond of Harvin’s ability he has asked the second year player out of Florida to join him in offseason workouts.
Vikings’ and Packers’ fans alike should be thrilled by this situation. For the Purple, Harvin will receive tutelage from one of the smartest and most effective defensive backs in the game. For fans of the Green and Gold, the opportunity will allow Woodson to study the tendencies and habits of the rising star.
Shadowing a future Hall of Famer in Woodson should only make Harvin a better player. If he can get his recurring migraines under control, Harvin has the ability to be one of the top players in the NFL. And if he keeps seeking out mentors like Woodson, the possibilities for Harvin are endless.
