Percy Harvin Informs Bills He’s Retiring From NFL

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that veteran WR Percy Harvin has informed the Bills that he’s retiring from the NFL.

The most recent report mentioned that Harvin was leaning towards retiring, despite some earlier optimism that he could try to play in 2016.

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, is a former first-round pick of the Vikings back in 2009. He spent four years in Minnesota before he was traded to the Seahawks. After an injury filled 2013 season, the Seahawks once again traded him, this time to the Jets.

Harvin signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Bills back in March of last year after the Jets cut him loose, but his agreement officially voided a few months ago making him an unrestricted free agent.

Over the course of his seven years in the NFL, Harvin totaled 515 receptions for 4,020 yards receiving to go along with 916 yards rushing on 145 carries (6.3 YPC) and 27 total touchdowns.
