Harvin follows Rex to Buffalo

AFC East Update

The Bills continue to add explosive playmakers on the offensive side of the ball by signing wide receiver Percy Harvin to a 1-year deal worth $6 million. The short term deal comes as no surprise as Harvin has battled injuries as well as coaching staffs and front offices. The Bills will be the fourth team Harvin has played for in three years. The 26-year-old’s talent is immense but his production has never out-weighed his attitude. That being said, after the trade to the Jets last year, Harvin appeared to be on his best behavior under then head coach Rex Ryan. The Bills’ front office and Ryan have obviously vetted the risk/reward associated with signing Harvin and felt acquiring the mercurial receiver was worth it. Between Harvin, Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, LeSean McCoy and perhaps Charles Clay, the Bills have a ton of big play potential on offense, something Rex never had in New York. It’ll be interesting to see if offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who is notorious for running a conservative, ball control offense, (which also happens to be they type of offense Rex has favored historically) is able to utilize a bevy of offensive weapons.
