Harvin's deal is now official, BuffaloBills.com reports.

We're certain his relationship with coach Rex Ryan helped speed this along, in what's believed to be a one-year deal. As for his role with the Bills, it'll be interesting to see whether the Bills use Harvin's speed in an all-purpose type role, or if he can edge out Robert Woods and earn a more traditional No. 2 receiving spot behind Sammy Watkins. One thing's for sure in that Harvin adds a much-needed speed element to a decent receiving group but one that pre-Harvin featured more hands and strength amid the group of Watkins, Woods, and Chris Hogan. If Charles Clay ends up signing with the Bills and Matt Cassel ends up beating out EJ Manuel, it's possible the team could enter the season with a new quarterback, running back, key wide receiver, tight end, and fullback.

Harvin agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Bills on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Harvin will play for his third team in the last two seasons, now taking his talents to Buffalo. In 13 games last season, he accumulated 51 receptions for 483 yards and one touchdown. While it was a down year for the six-year vet, the lack of a quarterback and other receivers likely played a part in his lack of production with the Jets. While the quarterback situation in Buffalo isn't much better, he will at least have other weapons around him to prevent the coverage from keying on him. He will join Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Chris Hogan and Marquise Goodwin in the receiving corps, and LeSean McCoy and Matt Cassel as offseason pickups for the team, the combination of which should draw some of the coverage and pressure off Harvin.

NESN.com relays via NFL Media's Ian Rapoport that there is a good chance that Harvin will land with the Patriots.

With pass-catching back Shane Vereen having signed with the Giants, the Patriots could use a versatile offensive weapon like Harvin, if the price is right.

Harvin will be released by the Jets on Tuesday, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Not that there was ever much doubt, but Harvin's fate was seemingly sealed when the Jets agreed to acquire Brandon Marshall in a trade. While just 26 years old with obvious talent, Harvin has a reputation for being both injury-prone and difficult to deal with. Plenty of teams could benefit from having a slot receiver and return man of his caliber, but Harvin may find the incoming contract offers a bit disappointing, after he signed a massive deal with the Seahawks two years ago. He still figures to have a significant role in the offense of whichever team he ends up signing with, though it increasingly seems unlikely that he'll ever provide No. 1 wideout production.

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York feels Harvin would be a logical cut for the Jets.

Harvin did nothing special in his eight games in New York, finishing with 29 catches for 350 yards and a touchdown (in addition to 110 rushing yards). New York owes Seattle a sixth-round pick for Harvin, but it becomes a fourth-round selection if Harvin is still on the roster come the draft.

Harvin (ribs) was not spotted at Tuesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Harvin was forced out of Sunday's loss to New England with a rib injury, and coach Rex Ryan said Monday that the versatile wideout was "extremely sore." Harvin hasn't been ruled in or out for Week 17, so keep an eye on his status before deploying him versus the Dolphins.
