The Jets invested lots of money in Eric Decker last season and acquired Brandon Marshall from the Bears this past week.
According to a Pro Football Talk, the Jets will release Harvin on Monday, freeing up the payroll burden that is his contract.
The Jets acquired Harvin from the Seahawks during the middle of last season and will have to give Seattle a fourth-round pick if he is still on the roster March 19. If they cut him before then, they will only owe Seattle a sixth-round pick.
Releasing Harvin would allow him to hit the market as soon as free agency begins Tuesday.
Despite being released, Harvin is a highly talented receiver and possesses game-changing ability with his speed. Going to a contending team could allow Harvin to re-establish his value as one of the more talented receivers in the NFL.
According to ProFootballTalk, teams like the Patriots, Packers and Chargers could be interested.
"The teams to watch continue to be the Chargers, Packers, and Patriots. Harvin may be inclined to do a reasonable one-year deal in the hopes of teaming up with a great quarterback and re-establishing himself as a premier weapon. Still only 26, Harvin could have plenty of solid years left — and he could end up cashing in next year if he manages to get through a full season as a model citizen who performs at a high level and shows true durability."
While Percy Harvin may be done in New York, others will be interested, and as he proved in Super Bowl XLVIII, he can change the game in an instant.
