Report: Percy Harvin contemplating retirement

Percy Harvin’s NFL career has often been held back by injuries, and now Harvin may have decided that it’s time to stop playing football so his body can heal.

Harvin is contemplating retirement after his most recent hip injury, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports.

The Bills are in London this week but Harvin didn’t make the trip because of what the team described as “personal reasons.” Bills coach Rex Ryan said he doesn’t know where Harvin is.

The 27-year-old Harvin missed 10 games in his four years with the Vikings from 2009 to 2012, then played in only one regular-season game and the Super Bowl in his first year with the Seahawks in 2013. He has since spent time with the Jets and Bills and has been plagued by nagging injuries.

When he’s healthy, Harvin is one of the most impressive playmakers in the league, a threat to score as a runner, receiver or returner. But he’s not healthy very often, and may now decide to focus fully on his health and not at all on football.
