Vikings WR Percy Harvin believes the migraines that have plagued his career are no longer an issue.

Harvin told The Virginian-Pilot that he hasn't suffered a migraine in five or six months.

"This is the best I've felt, probably, since I've been in kindergarten," he said.

The third-year receiver said he met with a couple doctors who are helping with his diet and other things that have caused migraines. The 2009 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year missed two games last season. He collapsed at a Vikings practice because of a severe migraine.

Harvin finished the season with 71 catches for 868 yards and five touchdowns.

The way we see it

If true, this development could be big news for the Vikings and their young, electric star. If Harvin can stay healthy and on the field, he can be along the lines of a DeSean Jackson-type receiver with his playmaking abilities, not to mention the positive impact it will have on his health.
