Report: ‘Good Chance’ Percy Harvin Joins Patriots After Jets Cut Him

The New England Patriots could try to replace running back Shane Vereen’s production with a speedy wide receiver.

The New York Jets cut Percy Harvin on Tuesday, and NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported there’s a “good chance” he’ll land with the Patriots. Harvin has bounced around the NFL over the past three seasons, from the Minnesota Vikings to the Seattle Seahawks to the Jets.

Harvin caught 51 passes for 483 yards and one touchdown last season, split between the Seahawks and Jets. He also ran the ball 33 times for 202 yards with another TD.

The Patriots lost Vereen to the New York Giants via free agency. They reportedly have looked into signing pass-catching backs Reggie Bush and Roy Helu.

UPDATE (8:37 p.m.): Harvin will make his first free-agent visit, but it won’t be to New England. Multiple reports have Harvin going to Buffalo to chat with the Bills.
