Percy Harvin makes shock NFL return from retirement

The Buffalo Bills haven't made too bad of a start to the 2016 NFL regular season, sitting in second place in the AFC East with a comfortable 4-4 record.

However, the Bills are taking on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football in week nine and it seems like Rex Ryan has a trick up his sleeve in his bid to get one over Pete Carroll and his Seahawks side.

According to a tweet from sports agent Greg Barnett, Percy Harvin will be coming out of retirement to sign for the Bills for the rest of the season.

Seeing as Harvin is Barnett's client, we're inclined to believe him. Harvin links up with his old team and head coach once again, with the Bills being the last team that the wide receiver played for before retiring in 2015.

In the last three years, Harvin has 718 receiving yards and two touchdowns. When you take into account that production and the fact that he has been away from the game for pretty much a whole year, well let's just say that fantasy owners shouldn't get their hopes up too much. 

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Harvin is being paid a cool $1m to play in the Bills' final eight games of the season. 

Being a former Seahawks player, who was traded away to the New York Jets after Carroll and co had finally had enough of his actions, Harvin could well be in revenge mode on Monday Night Football. 

Knowing his record, however, it is a lot more likely that Harvin will get an injury than score a TD against his former employer.
