At the end of the season, the final two years in the contract of injury-plagued wide receiver Percy Harvin officially voided, making him an unrestricted free agent. That wasn't the biggest question regarding Harvin, however.

Harvin, who played in five games for the Bills in 2015, had his season ended prematurely by a lingering hip injury. At one point, The Buffalo News reported that the wide receiver was even mulling retirement, which seemed to be the case in the offseason as well.

However, Harvin has made his mind up. A source to 7 ABC confirms, that the wideout will "definitely" play in the 2016 season. The original report from ProFootballTalk.com said Harvin has an offer from the Bills, in addition to other teams as well.

There is no direct timetable as to when Harvin will make up his mind, but the Bills have said in past weeks that they remain interested. The Bills already have nine receivers signed to the roster at the time of this post, and a reported deal with a tenth -- free agent Leonard Hankerson -- which has yet to be officially announced.

Harvin had 19 receptions, 218 yards, and a touchdown in five starts with Buffalo.
