The Jets are hoping to resolve Percy Harvin's contract situation before March 19.
If Harvin is still on the team by March 19, New York would owe Seattle a fourth-round draft pick. If he's gone, the Jets would only be on the hook for a sixth-rounder. New York is hoping to reduce Harvin's salary figure for next season, but both sides see that as an unlikely outcome. Harvin recorded 350 receiving yards in eight games after his midseason trade to New York. Mar 3 - 12:44 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "would be shocked" if Percy Harvin agreed to take a pay cut to remain with the Jets.

Due a non-guaranteed $10.5 million, the Jets are expected to ask Harvin for a pay cut. If he declines, there's a chance the Jets could release Harvin. If he's cut, La Canfora expects the Patriots to have interest in Harvin. New England has always thought highly of the soon-to-be 27-year-old. We'd expect the Jets to do everything they can to retain Harvin, as they're in need of offensive weapons.

New coach Todd Bowles said at the Combine that the Jets are still "evaluating" Percy Harvin's spot on the roster.

New GM Mike Maccagnan "hinted" the Jets may ask Harvin to redo his deal. In an ideal world, the Jets would bring back Harvin at a salary lower than his currently-owed $10.5 million. The Jets need to be collecting weapons, not cutting them.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes the Jets will release Percy Harvin before March 19.

March 19 is important because if Harvin is on the roster, the Jets will owe the Seahawks a fourth-round pick. If he's not on the roster, the Jets will only have to send Seattle a sixth-rounder. Considering the Jets can wash their hands completely clean of Harvin's $10.5 million salary without a dead-money hit makes the decision even easier. Harvin is electric when healthy, so he'd be a highly-interesting player to track should he hit the market. And it sounds like he will.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes the Jets releasing WR Percy Harvin is the "logical move."

The sixth-round pick the Jets parted with in the Harvin deal becomes a fourth-rounder if he is still on the Jets' roster in 2015. Cimini doubts new GM Mike Maccagnan will be willing to sacrifice two rounds in order to keep an injury-prone receiver and his $10.5 million scheduled pay. We tend to agree. Harvin will likely be looking for work during free agency.

Jets declared WR Percy Harvin, QB Matt Simms, WR Walter Powell, S Jaiquawn Jarrett, G Wesley Johnson, C Nick Mangold, and DT T.J. Barnes inactive for Week 17 against the Dolphins.

The absence of Harvin makes Eric Decker a sneaky-if-contrarian DFS play against the Fins. Even versus Miami's fading defense, New York's running game is probably going to struggle with All-Pro center Mangold on the shelf.

Percy Harvin (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Harvin is often nicked up, but he's also a fast healer. Early-week indications were that Harvin would definitely not play in Sunday's finale against the Dolphins, but he may now be available. He's likely a game-time decision.

Percy Harvin (ribs, ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

Barring a surprise Friday return to practice, it appears Harvin will miss Sunday's finale against the Dolphins. It's possible he's already played his final down as a Jet.

Percy Harvin (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Harvin has all but been ruled out of Sunday's finale at Miami. Geno Smith will ride with Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley as his top-two wideouts.

The Jets expect Percy Harvin (ribs) to miss Week 17.

Harvin missed Tuesday's practice. Per coach Rex Ryan, Harvin "can't do a whole lot." Missing Sunday's finale would mean Harvin heads into the offseason sporting just a 51/483/1 line as a receiver through 13 2014 games. He's added a 33/202/1 slash as a runner, but it's not exactly production befitting of Harvin's $10.5 million 2015 base salary. With GM John Idzik's job in danger, it's possible his replacement will be inclined to move on from Harvin.

Percy Harvin was forced from the Jets' Week 16 game against the Patriots with a rib injury, and will not return.

Harvin went down midway through the third quarter, and was ruled out early in the fourth. The injury-prone wideout had four catches for 44 yards before going down, adding two rushes for one yard. With only one game left, it's possible Harvin has played not only his final snap of the season, but as a Jet.

Percy Harvin (ankle) is active for Week 16 against the Patriots.

Harvin is a tough sell as a WR4 as he does battle with the Patriots' Darrelle Revis-led secondary.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:37:00 AM

Percy Harvin returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Harvin will be fine for Week 16, but going up against one of the league's best secondaries with Geno Smith at quarterback, he's not a realistic WR3 for the fantasy finals.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 01:42:00 PM

Percy Harvin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

He should be fine for Week 16 against the Patriots after playing through the injury in Week 15. Harvin isn't a realistic fantasy option with Geno Smith at quarterback.

Percy Harvin rushed once for 10 yards and was held without a catch Week 15 against the Titans.

Harvin did not appear to be bothered by his ankle injury. He looked fine on the 10-yard rush and had a good kickoff return in the third quarter. He could not haul in any of his three targets, though, and was a non-factor all game. Harvin has been inconsistent in his time with the Jets and cannot be trusted as anything more than a WR4 Week 16 against the Patriots.
