WR - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Former 1st-round pick and free agent WR Percy Harvin told Josina Anderson that he’s got “the itch” to return to the NFL.
Harvin said, “I’ve been training with a former Olympian. My body is feeling good. Mentally I’m better. My family is good. The timing is right.” This news comes right after Rob Gronkowski came out of retirement and got traded to Tampa Bay, so Harvin might have seen that and now wants to play himself. He hasn’t played since the 2016 with Buffalo. Harvin will be 32 years old in May, but still believes he’s got something left in the tank. In his career, Harvin has over 4,000 yards receiving and over 4,000 yards as a return man. We’ll see if a team gives him a shot at a return in 2020.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is reporting former NFL wide receiver Percy Harvin will not participate in free agency and "plans to retire for real this time."
"He's done (playing)," a rep for Harvin told reporters. The former wide receiver and return ace, who played eight seasons in the NFL, battled injuries throughout his career. Most notably, he suffered from migraine headaches, that could severely impair one's senses. Although Harvin has come in and out of retirement in recent years, his rep believes he is hanging up his cleats for the final time.
The Buffalo Bills placed wide receiver Percy Harvin (head) on the non-football injury list Monday.
Harvin has battled migraines and head aches throughout the course of his career and they have reared their ugly head once again in 2016. Harvin's season and perhaps his NFL career is over. A 2017 return is possible but seems unlikely at this point and time.
Percy Harvin (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's Bills game at Oakland.
With migraine headaches continuing to debilitate him, one has to wonder if he should abort his comeback and go back to retirement. He should be nowhere near fantasy rosters.
Percy Harvin was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice with "illness." He has not practiced since the middle of last week.
We know the "illness" is debilitating migraines, which have dogged Harvin throughout his career. It's been a full week now that Harvin has been sidelined, and he should be considered out indefinitely. He does not need to be on any fantasy roster.
