Percy Harvin (hip/knee) has reportedly told the Bills that he plans to retire as a player, ESPN.com reports.
Harvin, who turns 28 next month, has been limited by injuries over the past few seasons, thus cutting short a football career that once looked highly promising after the Vikings selected the dynamic offensive threat with the 22nd overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft.
Percy Harvin (hip/knee) is unlikely to play this season, FOX Sports reports.
Harvin's future has been subject of conflicting reports lately, as just last week he was thought to have decided to play this season. Now, it appears the wideout's NFL future is more uncertain, despite having numerous teams make inquiries to him. Until Harvin makes a retirement announcement or signs with a team, his situation remains in flux.
Bills coach Rex Ryan is a big fan of Harvin and he'd seem to get an important role behind Sammy Watkins if he came back to Buffalo, but the team has very little cap room and there's a good likelihood Harvin's agent wants to see what else is out there before committing to the Bills again. Harvin is far from a picture of health, but he was a nice asset in a jack-of-all trades role with the Bills in 2015; however, it's tough for any second fiddle guys to put up fantasy-heavy numbers in the team's run-heavy offense.
Harvin is currently a free agent after having the final two years of his contract voided by the Bills. However, after experiencing a number of hip and knee complications, he's contemplating whether he wants to continue his NFL career. Should he decide against retirement, Harvin would likely have numerous teams interested in him, but as it stands, his situation remains in a holding pattern.
The Buffalo Bills have voided the final two years of Percy Harvin 's (hip/knee) contract, which will make the wideout a free agent on March 9, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports.
With much uncertainty surrounding Harvin's desire to continue his NFL pursuits, the Bills will search elsewhere for a No. 2 receiver to complement top option Sammy Watkins. All options have been on the table for Harvin, including retirement, but his rehab from knee surgery and avoiding further issues with his hip will ultimately play a role in whether he's a part of a roster in the fall.
