Report: Percy Harvin “Unlikely” To Play Football This Season

Sources tell Peter Schrager of FOX Sports that even though NFL teams have inquired in recent weeks, it’s “unlikely” free agent WR Percy Harvin will be play football in 2016.

This is actually somewhat of a surprising, considering that Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported a few weeks ago that Harvin will “definitely” play in 2016.

Florio mentioned that the Bills have a pending offer out to Harvin along with a few other teams. However, Harvin was reportedly looking for the right situation and is currently unsure of what he’ll do.

Free agency opened close to a month 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.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
