Former Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman got a workout with the Buffalo Bills. The Bills could use his help, will they sign him?
The Baltimore Ravens decided to cut ties with their former first-round pick, wide receiver Breshad Perriman over the weekend.
Earlier today, Perriman reportedly got a workout with the Buffalo Bills.
He was one of several players who got a chance to show the team he deserves a job in Buffalo.
Perriman was the No. 26 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft and was the fifth receiver off the board. Perriman saw Oakland’s Amari Cooper, Chicago’s Kevin White, Miami’s DeVante Parker and Philadelphia’s Nelson Agholor all get selected ahead of him. Perriman was supposed to be the Ravens future for their receiving corps and new deep threat after Torrey Smith left for San Francisco and Steve Smith was headed toward retirement.
But injuries and lack of production limited Perriman’s productivity and the Ravens quickly grew impatient with him. General Manager Ozzie Newsome looked to older receivers for some help, with Mike Wallace in the past and most recently Michael Crabtree.
Still only 24 years old, Perriman still has a ton of upside to him. The only concern with Perriman going forward would be his health. In only two seasons with Baltimore, he saw 101 balls come his way and only caught 43 of them. With those 43 catches, Perriman hauled in 576 receiving yards and had a total of three touchdowns.
The Bills could definitely use Perriman as they are near the bottom of the league in receiving yards and touchdowns. Signing Perriman would benefit everyone and most certainly starting quarterback Nathan Peterman.
If the Bills do however pull the trigger and sign Perriman it will certainly be eye-opening, as the Bills open up the 2018 season against his former team this Sunday.
