Harvin (hip/knee) definitely plans on playing in 2016, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

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 Bills have 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.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvin is currently a free agent after having the final two years of his contract voided by the Bills.

The Bills have voided the final two years of Harvin's (hip/knee) contract, which will make the wideout a free agent on March 9, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

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.

The Bills sill are unsure whether Harvin, placed on injured reserve in early November due to knee and hip injuries, is planning on returning for another season, NFL.com reports. "Percy Harvin was supposed to be a big help for us and we're still not sure what's going on," Jim Monos, the team's director of player personnel, told WGR-AM on Tuesday, per ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. "He's got to make some decisions here coming up. We need to get somebody opposite of (wideout) Sammy (Watkins) to be a real threat to that defense. I think that's a big key for our offense, to take one more step."

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvin was reportedly leaning toward playing for the Bills again back in December, but apparently the team hasn't heard much since. The team is looking for an upgrade at No. 2 wideout to go with budding star Watkins, though we're not sure Harvin fits that bill given his inconsistency and long injury history. Things will have to play out soon as the Bills get ready for the draft. Rex Ryan seems to be a pretty big fan of Harvin, and when healthy he can still burn a lot of defenses.

Harvin, placed on injured reserve in early November due to knee and hip injuries, may be leaning toward trying to play again in 2016, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I've talked to him a couple of times, but just texts back and forth," said coach Rex Ryan on Monday. "I think I've talked to him once and I've texted him a few times. More about a personal variety than about where he is on the injury front. I get the sense he wants to play. He had the surgery because he wants to play."

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvin has had nothing but bad luck with injuries throughout his NFL career, but give him credit in that he keeps coming back. He was thought to have been frustrated enough to consider retirement earlier in the season, but with time and some healing it appears his mindset is either changing course or at least up in the air. The veteran had a 19/218/1 receiving line over five games in 2015, and hasn't appeared in double-digit games since 2011.
