Percy Harvin free agent visit with Buffalo Bills continues Thursday

As the Buffalo Bills continue their courtship of Percy Harvin, some information on what he's seeking from his next employer has surfaced via ESPN reporter Josina Anderson.

ESPN's Josina Anderson is reporting that free agent wide receiver Percy Harvin is scheduled to continue his visit with the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, after arriving in town on Wednesday.

A source very obviously connected with Buffalo also tells Anderson that Harvin is "very comfortable" with the Bills, but that his camp may be trying to convince him to take another visit, perhaps to a place with a more settled quarterback situation. He also, apparently, is looking for an opportunity to play a lot more wide receiver than he has in the past, instead of being exclusively the gadget player.

In Buffalo, Harvin, who will turn 27 in May, would profile as the team's No. 3 receiver, working in behind projected starters Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. He would also likely be asked to return kicks and punts, if only occasionally, and would run the football some in Greg Roman's creative rushing offense. But the opportunity would theoretically exist for Harvin to play a lot of wideout, as well, and he is obviously familiar with head coach Rex Ryan.

The Bills have a lot of irons in the fire at the moment beyond Harvin: they are reportedly preparing a large offer sheet for Miami tight end Charles Clay, had quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the building yesterday, and are also sniffing around veteran tight end Anthony Fasano, as well.
