WR Breshad Perriman
The former first round pick of the Baltimore Ravens has not quite had the best start to his career after being cut by the team that drafted him just three years later. Known for dropped passes and the inability to stay healthy, Perriman looked like a bust who was on his way out of the league already.
Six weeks into the 2018 season, the Cleveland Browns suffered a string of injuries at the wide receiver position and needing to add some depth, they brought Perriman in for a workout. In that workout he parlayed himself into a contract to play out the rest of the year in brown and orange.
While his numbers do not jump out on a stat sheet, Perriman was an analytical day dream for the Browns a year ago. He tallied just 340 yards and two touchdowns on 16 catches last year for the Browns, but he did not drop any passes last year and posted an insane 64 percent catch rate. When rookie Baker Mayfield targeted Perriman a year ago, his quarterback rating soared to a 134.2, and he began to depend on the former University of Central Florida standout down the field.
In training camp to this point, Winston too, has depended on Perriman to make plays, and the fifth year receiver has not disappointed to this point. After the departure of DeSean Jackson this offseason, Perriman looks to be the Buccaneers’ main deep threat this year, which should provide him plenty of opportunity as he looks to prove he is not a bust.
