Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that free agent WR Percy Harvin will “definitely” play in 2016, despite some talk that he could consider retiring from the NFL.
According to Florio, the Bills have a pending offer out to Harvin along with a few other teams. However, he’s reportedly looking for the right situation and is currently unsure of what he’ll do.
Florio mentions that this could be an indication that Harvin is looking for the best quarterback to play for.
Free agency opened four weeks ago, but there really hasn’t been a lot of buzz regarding Harvin since then.
Last year, Harvin was placed on season-ending injured reserve due to knee and hip injuries. There was also some talk that he could call it career, so retirement can’t be ruled out at this point in time.
Harvin, 27, signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Bills back in March of last year after the Jets cut him loose. His agreement officially voided a few months ago making him an unrestricted free agent.
In 2015, Harvin was limited to appearing in five games, catching 19 passes for 218 yards receiving to go along with five carries for 31 yards rushing (6.2 YPC) and one total touchdown.
