According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter the Bucs have re-signed wide receiver Breshad Perriman to a 1-year contract. With this signing, Perriman is expected to contribute to Tampa Bay’s depth at the wide receiver position. He’ll compete with incumbents Scotty Miller, Jaelon Darden, Cyril Grayson and Tyler Johnson for the WR4 spot on the depth chart. On Tuesday, the Bucs signed wide receiver Russell Gage to fill their No. 3 receiver spot.

Perriman was originally drafted in the 1st round out of UCF by the Baltimore Ravens in 2015. But he did not live up to his draft billing with Baltimore. Perriman missed his rookie season due to injury and struggled to put together consistent play over the following two seasons.

Since then, Perriman’s career has been a journey. Over the past four seasons he has had stops in Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New York (Jets) and Detroit. Perriman ultimately landed back in Tampa Bay late last year, after injuries depleted the Bucs’ receiving corps.

Perriman brings several attributes that Bruce Arians looks for in a receiver, combining a big frame (6-2, 215) with elite speed. Perriman’s best season came during his first stop with the Bucs in 2019, when he had 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns. For his career he has logged 136 catches for 2,233 yards averaging 16.4 yards per catch with 15 touchdowns.

While Perriman’s career has been a disappointment, he’s had several outstanding moments in Tampa Bay. Most recently, Perriman’s 58-yard game-winning touchdown in overtime against the Bills last year. But even in 2019, Perriman was magnificent for an ailing Bucs squad. With Chris Godwin and Mike Evans sidelined, Perriman rattled off three straight 100-yard games. He also scored four touchdowns in that stretch of contests.

Wonder if this is a hint that Godwin won’t be back soon enough or if they’re knowing having issues to resign him. I love me some Godwin and hope he does sign again but it’s looking shaky since we’ve heard nothing and they have to get under the cap quickly

I don’t think this speaks to anything of Godwin’s situation. This offense needs 4 good WRs as they run 4 WR sets often. No contract details yet but I’m sure this was SUPER cheap signing (he was sitting with no team last year when we picked him midway thru). This just gives us a quality, experienced WR that can totally step in where needed. Godwin is coming back this year for sure, either on his one year contract or a long term. The way the contracts came out (thanks Jags), I’m not surprised if he’ll hold out for next year… Read more »

More unorginiality and not even accurate. His hands were fine when he made that game winning TD catch and run against Buffalo. Although he is no longer a starter he can be a valuable backup. Try to think before you try to be clever.

Its my opinion and your welcome to yours and just because he caught one game winning ball doesn’t make him reliable or sure handed. Yeah he is just a backup I felt I my opinion they had enough and could have directed those resources into a splash signing with bigger impact.

Another good depth piece signing. Makes sense for sure.

Raiders just cut Carl Nassib. I would suggest the Bucs look into signing him. He had a solid two years here in Bowles defensive scheme. In fact, it was his best two years of his career.
