Percy Harvin officially retires from NFL

Over the past several months, veteran wide receiver Percy Harvin has gone back and forth about making a big decision to continue playing football into the future. It looks like he has finally come to a decision and he will hang up his cleats for good.

According to multiple reports, sources told the Buffalo Bills that Harvin, 27, has decided to officially call it a career. Just a few weeks ago, he was intent on playing at least for the 2016 season, however, his problems with concussions led to this ultimate and final decision.

Harvin came into the league as a first round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2009. He won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award and nearly helped the team get to the Super Bowl, falling just short to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game.

He has over 4,000 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns, while rushing for nearly 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. Percy Harvin also returned six kickoffs for touchdowns in his career, including an 87-yard return in Super Bowl XLVIII for the Seattle Seahawks.
