If Percy Harvin leaves Buffalo, Patriots could be next visit

If Percy Harvin leaves Buffalo without a new contract, the Patriots could be his next visit, according to a report.

The New England Patriots may still be alive in the pursuit of wide receiver Percy Harvin. Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports reports:

According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Harvin’s concern in Buffalo could be the lack of an established quarterback. The Patriots clearly are solid in that area (Jimmy Garropolo, anyone?).

Of course, Harvin is in the second day of his visit with the Bills – the mutual interest between those teams is clear.

Should Harvin depart Buffalo without a contract, the Patriots would be an intriguing option. Belichick’s long-term interest in Harvin is well documented. He could serve as a versatile weapon that works in as the third receiver in a variety of spots, and could perhaps even take on some of Shane Vereen’s duties as a running back.
