Buffalo Bills’ Percy Harvin has revealed his new team-mates have been a lot more accepting than the ones he had during his time in Seattle, according to reports.
The wide receiver said whilst appearing on ESPN’s First Take when asked why the Bills have been such a good fit for him, that his new team mates have been a lot more welcoming, unlike in the Seahawks that treated him as an outsider.
He said: “I think most importantly, from this year to Seattle, my team-mates accept me a little more. What I mean by that I felt when I went to Seattle a lot of the receivers took me as a threat rather than accepting me as a team-mate.

“I always told those guys, I pulled them to the side several times after seeing the comments they were making to the media, I’m like, ‘Hey, guys, I’m here to ball with you, to take us to the next level.’
“A lot of guys were looking at they were established and they didn’t need any help. I just took it as I never was kind of accepted in the receiver group by all the members.”
There have been several reports of Harvin not getting along with his fellow receivers during his time in Seattle. He has singled out former team mate at the Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin as a player he did have problems with.
The two players did have a physical battle with one another in the past according to the Seattle Times. The 27-year-old also had his problems with Golden Tate as well, who is now at the Detroit Lions, giving him a black-eye.
Evidently though, it is clear that from this interview, Harvin is happy to be starting the next chapter of his NFL career with the Bills, and he is glad the Seattle chapter is closed.
