Should be re-signed: Breshad Perriman, WR
While Greg Robinson joined the team late in camp, another former first-round bust, Breshad Perriman, joined much later. In October, the Browns reached out to the former Baltimore Ravens day one pick as they needed to add some depth at wide receiver. Perriman provided more than that as he proved to be good for a huge play every couple of weeks.
In a Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers, he set the tone for the game with a huge 66-yard grab on the first play from scrimmage. He again went for more than 60-yards in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals. And in the Browns final game of the season, he finished with 45 yards off three receptions and had a beautiful 28-yard touchdown grab.
The 25-year old ended up playing in 10 games for Cleveland and had 16 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns. What was most impressive was his average of 21.3 yards per reception as he was able to keep defenses worried about the deep ball.
Perriman might not ever make good on his lofty draft status, but he doesn’t have to do that to be a success in Cleveland. All he needs to do is keep showing up with the occasional big play like he did this year. The Browns shouldn’t let him walk as they can use him in 2019 and beyond.
