Percy Harvin, Bills Agree to 1-Year Deal

The Bills may want to be a ground and pound team in 2015, but that doesn't mean that they can't add dynamic playmakers. On Friday, Buffalo signed Percy Harvin to a one-year contract.

Percy Harvin will be joining the Buffalo Bills on a one-year deal. The wide receiver will make close to $6 million in 2015, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

The Buffalo Bills didn't have much depth at wide receiver entering free agency but that changed with the signing of Harvin. Buffalo now has four quality wide receivers to work with in 2015.

Harvin spent part of the 2014 season with Rex Ryan on the New York Jets, so he’s very familiar with Buffalo’s head coach. The Bills weren’t the only team who had interest in Harvin, but the wide receiver never left Buffalo.

In eight games with the Jets, Harvin had 29 receptions, 350 yards and a touchdown. He also added 110 rushing yards on 22 carries and 495 yards on kick returns. Harvin started the season in Seattle where he had 22 receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown, as well as 11 carries for 92 yards and one touchdown.

Harvin gives the Bills another wrinkle as he can be used in a variety of ways. Although Buffalo is expected to be a ground and pound team, Greg Roman will design plays and packages for Harvin. The AFC East has been very busy this offseason as the Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets all try to gain ground on the Patriots.
