According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Bills won’t reach an injury settlement with WR Percy Harvin at any point this season, despite the fact that he was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday.
Some had speculated that the Bills could cut Harvin once he was healthy, which would allow him to catch on with a new team.
However, it looks like the Bills will hold onto him and allow him to become an unrestricted free agent next year.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Harvin is scheduled to undergo knee surgery this week and intends to resume NFL career next season.
There had been talk that Harvin could call it a career and retire, but it sounds like he’ll be shopping around for a new opportunity in 2016.
Harvin, 27, signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Bills back in March after the Jets cut him loose. He’ll be an unrestrictred free agent again next year.
This season, Harvin has appeared in five games and caught 19 passes for 218 yards receiving to go along with five carries and 31 yards rushing (6.2 YPC) and one total touchdown.
