Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin “definitely” plans to play in 2016 despite the rumors of his intent to retire after the 2015 season, and the Bills are interested in signing him, reports Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.

The Bills and several other teams have made contract offers to Harvin, Florio reports.

Bills general manager Doug Whaley confirmed last week that Harvin was “leaning towards playing” in 2016, and said that he expected to hear from Harvin soon about his future plans.

Harvin dealt with hip and knee injuries that landed him in injured reserve midway through the 2015 season, and NFL.com reported in October that Harvin could choose to retire as he continued his battle with injuries that began in 2011. He played just five games for the Bills in his first season with the team and caught 19 passes for 218 yards and one touchdown. 

Over his seven-year NFL career, Harvin has played for four teams, including the Vikings, Seahawks, Jets and Bills. He has amassed 4,020 career receiving yards with 22 touchdowns and 351 catches since he was drafted by Minnesota in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft.
