• Percy Harvin earned $42 million from playing in the NFL
  • He retired twice due to injuries
  • Harvin's best moments were with the Seattle Seahawks

Percy Harvin’s net worth is around $18 million. He is set to return once the season resumes after being away from the spotlight for three years.

Harvin took a hiatus in 2017 after being hobbled with injuries. He could not sit away much longer and admitted the itch never went away. Now, he claims he feels recharged physically and mentally although returning to action seems uncertain.

The 32-year-old wide receiver last suited up for the Buffalo Bills, but his return could mean wearing a new uniform next season. The NFL’s future is still up in the air as the league remains suspended indefinitely due to COVID-19. He was originally drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2009 and stayed there for four seasons. Harvin eventually went to the Seattle Seahawks for a year, then jumped to the New York Jets but eventually returned to Seattle after a year. He joined the Bills in 2015.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Virginia native can be considered a prodigy on the football stadium. Coming from a family of athletes, Harvin flashed early signs of potential in high school. He had a rocky start in his first year in the NFL after testing positive for marijuana, but the Vikings still gambled on him. It paid off as the wide receiver collected a number of awards such as the AP NFL Rookie of the Year, PFWA Offensive Rookie of the Year, Sporting News NFL Rookie of the Year and Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year.

Experts are picking the San Francisco 49ers to choose him, but his agent thinks otherwise. As indicated in a report from NBC Sports, the 49ers should address the team’s hole via NFL Draft but should they give Harvin a second look, that means the management might have messed up in their draft pick. Fans of the Seahawks could clamor for a nostalgic reunion, but the roster is intact at the moment.

Harvin has retired two times from playing professional football. He underwent surgery to repair his problematic hip and now, he claims he feels he can still play.

Other players need time away from the sport to heal their body physically and mentally. As athletes, they miss the competitive spirit and adrenaline rush so after taking a sabbatical, players such as Rob Gronkowski and Harvin decide on returning to the sport they’ve been playing their whole lives.
