Former NFL Rookie of the Year, Percy Harvin, Attempting an NFL Combeback


Super Bowl XLVIII - Seattle Seahawks v Denver Broncos

Percy Harvin has spent the last three years in retirement. He has suffered severe migraines all throughout his NFL playing career. After being selected 22nd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2009 draft, Harvin amassed over 4,000 yards receiving along with 22 touchdowns and also added five touchdowns rushing and five touchdowns returning kicks.

In 2009, he would win NFL Rookie of the Year.

After four years in Minnesota, Harvin was traded to Seattle and only played in one regular season game with the team but made his presence felt on an 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII.

After briefly retiring in April of 2016, Harvin signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills a few months later before calling it quits again because of his migraines.

Now, at 32, the former Gator star is attempting a second comeback to the NFL.

"I thought I was done, but that itch came back. I've been training w/a former Olympian. My body is feeling good. Mentally I'm better. My family is good. The timing is right."

He will be a free agent and able to sign with any team that wants him.
