Percy Harvin wants a shot at playing cornerback
Head coach Rex Ryan says wide receiver Percy Harvin wants to try playing cornerback, according to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.
“This is just a ‘let’s see what he can do’ thing,” Ryan said. “He came to me with it. He’s obviously got the physical skill set where you’d think he could be pretty good at it.”
Percy Harvin is focused on becoming a true full-time wide receiver instead of a gadget receiver, but he pulled a bit of a Troy Brown at Buffalo’s first training camp practice.
Harvin lined up for a couple of snaps at right cornerback Friday during team work at Bills camp. Head coach Rex Ryan said that Harvin approached him about giving the defensive position a shot.
