The Buccaneers’ newest downfield threat, Breshad Perriman, spoke with the Tampa media for the first time on Thursday.
Perriman – who spent his first two seasons with the Ravens and his 2018 season with the Browns – had originally agreed to terms with Cleveland in free agency, before signing a one-year, $4 million deal with Tampa following the Browns’ signing of Odell Beckham Jr.
“It was a mutual agreement,” Perriman said about backing out of the deal with Cleveland. “We both said that it would be best for my career and my future if we part ways.”
Perriman said his best attribute is his big play ability, and the way he can turn small plays into big plays. With that said, head coach Bruce Arians’ high-powered offense was a “huge part” in the former UCF pass catcher’s decision to return to his home state.
“It’s definitely exciting,” Perriman said. “That’s a huge part of this whole process and I just know the amount of deep shots he likes to take down the field, so it’s going to be exciting. I just can’t wait.”
