The Buffalo Bills’ aggressive search for talent this offseason apparently isn’t slowing down.
Former New York Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin is heading to Buffalo to meet with Bills’ brass, according to a source.
Harvin, 26, was released by the Jets on Tuesday. After news broke last week that the Jets were acquiring Brandon Marshall in a trade, the writing was on the wall that Harvin would be cut. The Jets saved $10.5 million in cap space by making the move.

Harvin’s relationship with head coach Rex Ryan and wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal is very strong, according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta. Pairing Harvin with second-year sensation Sammy Watkins and running back LeSean McCoy would rival just about any team for speed at the skill positions.
Harvin, who has played for three teams in three seasons, had 51 receptions for 483 yards and a touchdown in 2014.
