Report: Bills, Percy Harvin agree to one-year deal
Friday March 13th, 2015

The Buffalo Bills and free-agent wide receiver Percy Harvin have agreed to a one-year deal, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Alex Marvez of Fox Sports first reported that the sides were working on a deal.  

Harvin was released by the New York Jets on Tuesday after the team traded for receiver Brandon Marshall

The Jets acquired Harvin in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks last October. The 26-year-old finished last season with 51 catches for 483 yards and one touchdown.

Harvin was drafted in the first round by the Minnesota Vikings in 2009 and made the Pro Bowl in his rookie season. He won Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks. 

After Seattle traded Harvin, reports surfaced that he was unpopular with his teammates. Bob Condotta and Jayson Jenks of The Seattle Times reported that Harvin and then-teammate Golden Tate had an altercation before Super Bowl XLVIII "that resulted in Tate getting a black eye."

The Times also reported that Harvin and teammate Doug Baldwin had an altercation before a preseason game in 2014 in which Baldwin suffered a cut on his chin.
