ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that free agent wide receiver Percy Harvin has agreed to a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Harvin, who turns 27 in May, is entering his seventh NFL season in 2015, fresh off of a 2014 season in which he was traded from Seattle to the New York Jets, where he spent the last eight games of the year playing for Bills head coach Rex Ryan and wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal.

One of the most explosive playmakers in the NFL when playing at peak performance, Harvin adds the speed and elusiveness that the team lost with the free agent departure of C.J. Spiller back into the Bills' offense. In his six pro seasons, Harvin has accumulated 885 rushing yards (at 6.3 yards per carry), 3,802 receiving yards, 4,019 kick return yards, and 31 total touchdowns.

Harvin profiles as the Bills' No. 3 receiver heading into the new year, playing behind second-year pro Sammy Watkins and third-year pro Robert Woods. He could also add a necessary wrinkle to the creative, run-heavy scheme that new coordinator Greg Roman will be installing.
