Percy Harvin is rejoining Rex Ryan, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills.
Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press on Friday that the wide receiver-kick returner is headed to Buffalo. He was released this month by the Jets after playing for Ryan last season in New York.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract was not officially announced.
The Jets acquired the versatile Harvin from Seattle last October, but he was due $10.5 million in base salary in 2015. Harvin had 29 catches for 350 yards and a touchdown in eight games with the Jets after then-general manager John Idzik acquired him, calling the move “a potential coup” for New York. Harvin also ran for 110 yards on 22 carries, and averaged 24.8 yards on 20 kickoff returns.
Harvin, who went to Landstown High School in Virginia Beach, would join quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Tyrod Taylor as players from Hampton Roads on the Bills roster. Manuel went to Bayside High School in Virginia Beach, Taylor went to Hampton High School.
