Percy Harvin is a free agent this offseason, and his NFL future is uncertain after he left the Bills in the middle of the 2015 season. He was dealing with hip and knee injuries, but he also talked about retirement after another disappointing season. He went to Buffalo hoping to resurrect his career, which had fallen flat since leaving the Vikings in 2012 after failed stops in Seattle and with the Jets. He only appeared in five games with the Bills and had 19 catches for 218 yards and one touchdown and five carries for 31 yards. We'll see if he can rebound at 27, but it will take a team giving him a chance with a prominent role.
Harvin (hip/knee) has reportedly told the Bills that he plans to retire as a player, ESPN.com reports. Harvin, who turns 28 next month, has been limited by injuries over the past few seasons, thus cutting short a football career that once looked highly promising after the Vikings selected the dynamic offensive threat with the 22nd overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft.
Harvin (hip/knee) is unlikely to play this season, FOX Sports reports. Harvin's future has been subject of conflicting reports lately, as just last week he was thought to have decided to play this season. Now, it appears the wideout's NFL future is more uncertain, despite having numerous teams make inquiries to him. Until Harvin makes a retirement announcement or signs with a team, his situation remains in flux.
Harvin (hip/knee) definitely plans on playing in 2016, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports. Bills coach Rex Ryan is a big fan of Harvin and he'd seem to get an important role behind Sammy Watkins if he came back to Buffalo, but the Bills have very little cap room and there's a good likelihood Harvin's agent wants to see what else is out there before committing to the Bills again.
Harvin (hip/knee) is expected to make a decision on his NFL future in the next couple of weeks, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. Harvin is currently a free agent after having the final two years of his contract voided by the Bills. However, after experiencing number hip and knee complications, Harvin is contemplating whether he wants to continue his NFL career. Should he decide against retirement, Harvin would likely have numerous teams interested in him, but as it stands, his situation remains in a holding pattern.
The Bills have voided the final two years of Harvin's (hip/knee) contract, which will make the wideout a free agent on March 9, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports. With much uncertainty surrounding Harvin's desire to continue his NFL pursuits, the Bills will search elsewhere for a No. 2 receiver to complement top option Sammy Watkins. All options have been on the table for Harvin, including retirement, but his rehab from knee surgery and avoiding further issues with his hip will ultimately play a role in whether he's a part of a roster in the fall.
