NFL players have told us they want to see Adrian Peterson in the Super Bowl more than any other player. You've told us you don't have any hard feelings against Percy Harvin for getting to the Super Bowl one year after his unceremonious exit from Minnesota. Now, Harvin has completed this circle of love by tossing Peterson -- and in some senses, the Vikings -- a verbal bouquet from Super Bowl XLVIII media day.

Harvin said he'd like to see Peterson get a ring one day, adding the Vikings running back is "definitely a player that's worth it." He also added he's been getting "lots of love" from former Vikings teammates and front office members as he prepares to play in his first Super Bowl.

"Oh, man, for the last two weeks I've been getting text messages from former Gators, players at Minnesota, front-office people in Minnesota," Harvin said. "Everybody out there is showing lots and lots of love, so it's been good for me."

The receiver, who clashed with Vikings coaches at various points during his four years with the team, was traded to Seattle for three draft picks last March. He and Peterson have a good relationship, and Peterson took to Twitter at the time to vent about the trade, calling Harvin the best player he'd ever seen. Harvin only played one full game for the Seahawks this season -- against the Vikings on Nov. 17 -- and sustained a concussion during the team's divisional playoff game against the Saints, but is planning to be back for the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Asked if he thought Peterson would ever make it to a Super Bowl, Harvin said, "I have no idea, but he's definitely a player that's worth it. I've seen his work ethic and how he goes about his business, so it would be good one day for him to get a ring."
