Harvin's status with Bills should be known soon

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Percy Harvin has a couple of decisions to make, according to Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley.

One: Does he want to continue to play in the NFL?

Two: Does he want to continue to play for the Bills?

After Harvin's 2015 season was cut short by hip and knee issues, the Bills voided the final two years of a three-year deal the veteran receiver had signed last year. Whaley has maintained for a while that the team is open to re-signing him, and during the league meetings here Monday, he told reporters that Harvin's agent recently spoke with Bills senior Vice President of Football Administration Jim Overdorf about the receiver's status.

"And hopefully he's going to make a decision the next week or two of if he's gonna play, and if he's going to play, if he's coming back to us," Whaley said. "We'll hopefully know in the next week or two."

What Harvin decides could impact how the Bills proceed with addressing depth at receiver in the wake of Chris Hogan signing with New England.

Whaley said the team could conceivably be OK with what they have on their roster if Harvin returns to a group that would also have Marquise Goodwin, who is training for the Summer Olympics, and Robert Woods returning from a groin injury, and Greg Salas vying for the second, third and fourth spots behind Sammy Watkins.

"So we've got a compilation of guys that are on the roster right now that we feel, if we don't add anybody, we feel comfortable that we can have an approach by committee," Whaley said.
