Percy Harvin to play in 2016, has offer from Buffalo Bills, per report

New, comments

It sounds like Harvin won't be retiring, but whether or not he returns to Buffalo remains up in the air

Free agent wide receiver Percy Harvin plans to play NFL football in 2016, and the Buffalo Bills are just one of multiple teams that have standing contract offers to him.

That according to a report from Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, who says that Harvin is also looking for the "right situation" to continue his playing career. No teams aside from the Bills were mentioned specifically by Florio in the article.

Whether or not that right situation is in Buffalo is a matter of debate. If it's the best possible quarterback that Harvin would like to play with, he may or may not be able to do better than Tyrod Taylor, who played in the Pro Bowl as an alternate last season. But if it's playing time he's seeking, then the Bills' depth chart (he'd compete for the No. 2 job with Robert Woods again) and a coaching staff with a strong affinity for him may be quite appealing.

Harvin, who will turn 28 years old in May, has appeared in just 18 games since a hip injury derailed his career during the 2013 season. In his five games with the Bills during the 2015 regular season, Harvin caught 19 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown, while also adding 108 kick return yards and 31 rushing yards.
