The Jets have agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Breshad Perriman.
Former Bucs’ WR Breshad Perriman is signing with the Jets on a one-year deal for worth up to $8 million, including $6 million guaranteed, per @RosenhausSports.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 24, 2020
Perriman spent his 2019 season with Tampa Bay. Originally a first round pick of Baltimore in 2015, he also has spent time in the Washington and Cleveland organizations.
His career has not been overly productive. His 36 catch, 645 yard season with the Buccaneers in 2019 set new career highs. The vast majority of his production came in the month of December. Outside of that one month, there really hasn’t been much to get excited about during his career.
Perriman is likely to get a big opportunity with the Jets. He figures to take Robby Anderson’s spot as a starting wide receiver after Anderson agreed to terms with the Carolina Panthers today. There isn’t much else on the depth chart. While the Jets seem likely to take at least one wide receiver early in the NFL Draft, rookies can be unreliable, which makes Perriman likely to have a significant role.
