ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Percy Harvin has informed the Bills he is retiring after seven NFL seasons.
And so ends — at least for now — one of the stranger careers in modern NFL history. Harvin exploded onto the scene as a 21-year-old rookie in 2009, catching 60 passes from Brett Favre, and was one of the league's most dynamic wideouts from 2009-11. Then injuries began to take a massive toll on his 5-foot-11, 192-pound frame. An absolute bruiser of a player despite his small size, Harvin sought out contact. Unfortunately, he's also had multiple issues off the field, and reportedly got into fights with teammates Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin in Seattle. Harvin is still only 28 (in May), so a comeback is a distinct possibility, but he likely wants to recover from years and years of injuries first. Apr 14 - 5:32 PM

Fox Sports' Peter Schrager reports free agent Percy Harvin is unlikely to play in 2016.

This contradicts a PFT report that said Harvin would "definitely" play. That report surfaced last week, so perhaps Harvin had a change of heart. The injury-prone gadget receiver has played in just 29 of a possible 64 games since the start of 2012. Harvin turns 28 this May.

Profootballtalk reports free agent Percy Harvin "definitely" will play in 2016.

Harvin has interest from multiple teams, but "knows this is his last opportunity" and is waiting for the right situation. The Bills have a standing offer that he's yet to sign. Harvin lasted five games before landing on I.R. last year, but will attempt to rehab his value on a prove-it deal. Even after a lost season, Harvin is one of the top wideouts remaining in free agency.
Mar 30 - 5:25 PM

Coach Rex Ryan reiterated at Tuesday's NFL Coaches Breakfast that he wants free agent Percy Harvin back with the Bills.

"I would love to have Percy back," said Ryan. "This kid is one of the toughest guys you'll see. Would welcome him with open arms." Harvin essentially walked out on the Bills after five games last year, citing health issues and weighing retirement. Harvin is expected to decide his playing future in a "few weeks."
Mar 22 - 11:16 AM

ESPN's Mike Rodak reports free agent Percy Harvin is expected to decide on his playing future in the "next few weeks."

Speaking at the league meetings, Bills GM Doug Whaley said Harvin's retirement remains a possibility, but that he's "leaning" towards playing. Whaley has said the team is open to a new deal with the mercurial wideout. We wouldn't completely rule it out since Harvin seems close with coach Rex Ryan.
Mar 21 - 1:43 PM

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports free agent WR Percy Harvin could re-sign with the Bills.

Harvin lasted five games last season before landing on injured reserve with hip and knee injuries, catching 19 passes for 218 yards and one touchdown. It was another disappointing season for the former playmaker, but Bills GM Doug Whaley said after the season he would "love" to have Harvin back. Shockingly still just 27, Harvin has not really been healthy since 2011 and was reportedly mulling retirement before heading to injured reserve. He will not find anything more than one-year, "prove-it" deals on the market.
Mar 15 - 8:44 AM

The Bills voided free agent WR Percy Harvin’s contract.

Harvin lasted five games before landing on I.R. His NFL status is up in the air after retirement rumors this past year. Harvin is only entering his age-28 season, but hasn’t been healthy since 2011.
Feb 12 - 8:54 PM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he'd "love" to re-sign impending free agent Percy Harvin.

"The first thing for Percy is that he has to get healthy," Whaley added. Harvin, 28 in May, played just five games this past season and hasn't played more than nine games in a single season since 2011. Harvin posted a 19-218-1 line for Buffalo in 2015 and seemed to be more of a problem than asset. We don't expect Harvin back with the Bills unless he takes the near-minimum.
Jan 22 - 9:56 AM

The Bills remain uncertain of "what's going on" with impending free agent Percy Harvin.

"Harvin was supposed to be a big help for us and we're still not sure what's going on," director of player personnel Jim Monos said. "He's got to make some decisions here coming up." The final two years of Harvin's contract will void automatically on February 12, and it's unclear if the Bills even want to re-sign him after he proved to be a waste in 2015. He battled hip and knee injuries, reportedly considered retirement, and spent the final 11 games on I.R.
Jan 20 - 10:25 AM

Coach Rex Ryan said Monday that he's been texting with Percy Harvin (knee, I.R.) and "gets the sense" Harvin wants to resume his playing career.

Harvin had surgery on his knee earlier this year, but was also dealing with complications from a longstanding hip injury. He was rumored to be considering retirement. Harvin is not under contract for the 2016 season. The Bills may be one of a small handful of teams willing to give him one last shot.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Percy Harvin (knee) will not be reaching an injury settlement with the Bills.

He's headed for season-ending knee surgery. Even without an injury settlement, the Bills are free to void the last two years of his contract, which they will almost certainly do. Including the nine more games he'll miss this season, Harvin will have sat out 36 of a possible 64 games over a four-year span. As injuries and ineffectiveness mount, Harvin's NFL window is quickly coming to a close.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 09:07:00 AM

Bills placed WR Percy Harvin (hip, knee) on season-ending injured reserve.

The Bills can void the final two years of Harvin's contract, meaning his days in Buffalo are likely finished. Harvin will only be 28 when the 2016 season begins, but he is a declining playmaker with chronic injury concerns. It would not be surprising if the rumors of his possible retirement are true, and he will struggle to find any guaranteed money on the open market even if he decides to continue his career. Buffalo activated DB Leodis McKelvin in a corresponding move.
Sat, Nov 7, 2015 10:36:00 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said Percy Harvin (knee) could be headed to season-ending injured reserve.

He didn't practice at all this week and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Dolphins. Harvin's season started off nice but has predictably tailspun out of control in recent weeks. He's battled a hip issue, personal problem, and now a knee injury. Harvin turns 28 next May and will again be on the open market searching for yet another new team to take him in.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 12:56:00 PM

Percy Harvin (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Dolphins.

Harvin's status, both injury and otherwise, remains a mystery. It's not a guarantee he plays again this season. He's safely droppable in 12-team leagues.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 01:46:00 PM

Percy Harvin (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Harvin had previously been listed with a hip ailment. Whatever is bothering him, it doesn't sound like Harvin is nearing a return to the field for Week 9.
