MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Percy Harvin’s kickoff returning ability turned into a hidden talent last year.

After bringing back the season’s opening kick for a 103-yard touchdown, Harvin had only 15 other chances the rest of the way because of the NFL’s new touchback-friendly rules and the coaching staff’s conservative use of Minnesota’s most versatile offensive player.

This time, the Vikings sound like they’re ready to let Harvin show off more of that skill.

Rookie Josh Robinson and Jarius Wright are two intriguing candidates, but Harvin will always be the favorite provided he’s not too worn out or beat up from his duties as a receiver and a runner.
