Breshad Perriman signing with Browns, source says


The Cleveland Browns are signing former Baltimore Ravens first-rounder Breshad Perriman, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Browns’ receiving corps has been depleted, with Rashard Higgins out this week with a sprained MCL. Cleveland is also without Derrick Willies, who has a broken collarbone, against the Los Angeles Chargers. Willies is expected to put on injured reserve, but could return this season.

The Browns have only Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rod Streater and Damion Ratley healthy for Sunday’s game. Streater and Ratley have yet to catch a pass this season.

Perriman was cut by the Ravens in September and has worked out for several teams since. The No. 26 overall pick in the 2015 draft became the Ravens’ first first-round pick to be cut before his rookie contract expired.

He managed 43 catches for 576 yards and three touchdowns in 27 games, never eclipsing 65 yards receiving in any game.

Injuries and dropped passes defined Perriman’s time in Baltimore.

He missed the 2015 season with a partially torn PCL in his right knee. He was sidelined for training camp in 2016 with a partially torn ACL and sidelined all preseason and one regular-season game in 2017 with various injuries.

Last season, Perriman was ranked 116th out of 116 receivers by ProFooballFocus.com. Ravens fans cheered him in training camp when he caught passes during workouts, and late last season booed him sarcastically when he caught two in the season finale.

Information from ESPN’s Pat McManamon was used in this report.
