Despite how tempting it might be to give Percy Harvin a chance in 2020, this is one move the Philadelphia Eagles need to avoid at all costs.
Back in the day when Percy Harvin was considered one of the most dangerous wide receivers in the league due to his blazing speed, the thought of the former Florida star joining a team like the Philadelphia Eagles if the opportunity were to present itself would have been a no brainer.
But when it comes to present day, this should be another easy decision for the Eagles in regards to Harvin, only this time Philadelphia needs to avoid the veteran wideout at all costs.
Despite retiring for the second time in his career after the 2016 season, the news broke from ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Wednesday that Harvin is attempting yet another NFL comeback, although this will be easier said than done for the 2009 first-round pick.

Just because Harvin is feeling great enough to the extent that he has what it takes to make an impact for a NFL team again doesn’t necessarily guarantee some team is going to come racing to make sure they sign the wideout.
Between being away from the game since the 2016 season along with the fact that his production was already on the decline during his final few years in the league, it seems like Harvin is going to have a difficult time finding a team willing to give him a chance.
At this stage in the offseason, the Eagles are clearly still in need of help at the wide receiver position after seeing all of the injuries from 2019, but if they think Harvin is a solution to their problems, they will most likely be in for a major wake-up call.
Luckily, there has been zero indication at the moment over Philadelphia expressing interest in Harvin, meaning there is no reason for Eagles fans to believe this kind of move has any chance of taking place.
If anything, Philadelphia is smart enough to realize the best move would be to take advantage of this year’s draft class loaded with talent at wide receiver, and allow other teams to focus their attention on Harvin, that is if there ends up being any at all.
