Bills land Harvin

Orchard Park, NY ( – The Buffalo Bills officially signed
wide receiver Percy Harvin on Wednesday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but it was initially reported that
the deal was for one year.

Harvin became a free agent after being released by the New York Jets on March

The 26-year-old veteran, who was set to make $10.5 million in 2015, caught 29
passes for 350 yards and a touchdown in his brief stint with the Jets.

Harvin joins an offense that features recently-acquired running back LeSean
McCoy, rookie phenom Sammy Watkins and former Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel.
He’ll also be reunited with head coach Rex Ryan, who also moved to the Bills
from the Jets this offseason.

The Florida product was traded to New York last October from Seattle, where
his tenure was marred by injuries and rumored locker room issues.

Harvin’s career got off to a great start after he was honored as the NFL
Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2009 with Minnesota. Since entering the
league, he has averaged 6.7 yards after the catch, which is good for the
highest average among all receivers with at least 300 receptions.

In six seasons, Harvin has compiled 332 receptions for 3,802 yards and 21
scores over 68 games with the Jets, Seahawks and Vikings.
