Biggs: Harvin added to NFC Pro Bowl squad
The Minnesota Vikings picked up their ninth Pro Bowl player today as Percy Harvin was added to the NFC roster.
Harvin gets the spot of Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson, who was originally chosen as a kick returner. Jackson will not hold a spot as a receiver, creating an opening for the exiting rookie Harvin.
Harvin was fourth in the NFL in kickoff returns averaging 27.5 yards and had two touchdowns. He set a team record with 2,081 combined yards, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The first-round draft pick from Florida has fought occasional migraines all season but said that a trip to the May Clinic last month has helped.
"The week I was (inactive) I had a lot of medicines in me," he said. "I just kind of felt yucky. I was not running the whole week and sweating and actually being at practice. I just felt a little sluggish. So I practiced two full weeks and got that juice back, and I'm feeling good now."
