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.”

The Perriman signing fills an important void at receiver with the Bucs losing both DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries to free agency, and he’s already spoken with his new quarterback, Jameis Winston.

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.”

  1. His best attribute is his big play ability?

    16 receptions for 340 yards last year.

    He just robbed the Bucs without a gun.

  2. I looked at his stats, he averaged just over 21 yards a catch with 16 receptions for 340 yards. Not a lot of catches but decent yards. The most he caught was 33 catches for 499 yards for 15.1 yards a catch his first year in the NFL, three years ago with the Ravens. If he does not drop balls then he is a good solid replacement for Humphries who was just too expensive to keep. He seems like a solid pickup.

  3. He’s not replacing Humphries though, Godwin is moving to Humphries spot for mismatches and he is replacing Jackson, so if he can stretch the Defense and he shows up to Winston’s after practice practices like the other receivers and they can build a chemistry then we may be better off than before…

  4. His problem while he was with the Ravens was dropping passes..I don’t know if he has improved on that yet but am hoping he has.

  5. Hopefully with all the talent we have on offense already he can get the chance to develop to full potential. There won’t be any pressure on him to come in and put up big numbers. Just stretch the defense with his speed and make plays when you get the chance.

  6. Catch ball first, then run.
    Catch ball first, then run.
    Keep saying it over and over at least a 100 times a day.
    Most players drop a pass because they get concerned about what they are going to do after they catch the ball, not catching the ball first.
    As long as he doesn’t pout about not getting the ball thrown to him or throw little fits in the locker room when he has to go to meetings on time, he should be fine.
    We needed to know all we needed to about Jackson during his first year here.
    Todd Monken telling Jackson he was only in Tampa for the money and Winston telling Jackson on the sideline he threw to Evans a lot because he was always where he was supposed to be.

  11. The kid has all the physical tools. Just a matter of learning how to put them to good use. Looking forward to seeing him in Training Camp.
