The former first-round pick in 2015 (26th overall) was released by the Ravens after his best offseason and preseason for the Ravens. Unfortunately, Breshad was never was able to put together any type of consistency for the Ravens and even missed out on his entire rookie campaign. Perriman dealt with injuries throughout his entire career, dealing with two knee injuries, hamstring issues, and a concussion.
During his three-year career with the Ravens, Perriman hauled in 43 catches for 576 yards and had 3 touchdowns on his resume. Prior to the draft, Perriman was known as a height/weight/speed prospect (6-foot-2, 215-pounds, 4.25 40)and flashed the kind of skill-set teams looked for as a vertical threat. However, as a route runner, he never was able to put it together in that area. Before the Ravens parted ways with Perriman they did try to trade him, however, no teams were willing to trade for his services with his release imminent.
With the Eagles dealing with injuries in the wide receiver group, Alshon Jeffery still not ready to go, Mack Hollins on IR, the Birds could be looking for WR depth to add in the nest. Perhaps Eagles’ EVP of player personnel, Joe Douglas, may want to kick the tires on a player he was responsible for drafting during his time with the Baltimore Ravens.
