Wide receiver Percy Harvin signed with the Buffalo Bills earlier this offseason after playing for three other teams since the start of the 2012 season. The injury-prone receiver believes great things are in store for the Bills offense this season:
“Sky’s the limit,” Harvin told the Democrat & Chronicle. “We think once we get in training camp, everyone is going to be in tip-top shape, this offense is going to be very scary.”
This hasn’t always been the situation for the Bills, who have undoubtedly improved their offense by adding LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay and Harvin over the past few months. The hiring of head coach Rex Ryan also seems to indicate an upward trend for the team in Western New York.
Harvin’s optimism didn’t end with his initial comments:
“How are teams going to face us? Are they going to take away the run? Are they going to stop the tight ends? Are they going to try to take away the wide receivers? Are they going to use two safeties over the top? Are they going to double-team a wide receiver? Whatever the defense tries to take away, we feel like we’ve got another option on offense.”
The only position Harvin does not address in his comments is the team’s quarterback. Unfortunately, the Bills do not have the most appealing cast competing for the starting job.
Nevertheless, Harvin’s enthusiasm is refreshing. And if he can remain healthy all season, he will be a major contributor to an offense that seems to be on the rise.
