Former NFL wide receiver Percy Harvin said he's "ready to return" to the NFL after spending three seasons away from the league.
"I thought I was done, but that itch came back," Harvin told ESPN on Tuesday.
Harvin, 32, last played during the 2016 season with the Buffalo Bills and has battled several injuries throughout his career. He called it quits officially in March of 2017, although he said Tuesday he never officially filed for retirement.
"I knew I wasn't functioning right, not only physically, just all around the board," he said. "I had to get in contact with myself."

Now, Harvin said he's in playing shape and noted: "My body is feeling good. Mentally I'm better. My family is good. The timing is right."
Harvin helped spark the Seattle Seahawks' Super Bowl XLVIII win over the Denver Broncos with an 87-yard kickoff-return touchdown. He played college football for the Florida, helping the program win BCS national titles in 2006 and 2008. The Minnesota Vikings selected him with the No. 22 selection in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft.
