Reports: Cleveland Browns no longer re-signing wide receiver Breshad Perriman
BEREA, Ohio– Wide receiver Breshad Perriman was set to stay in Cleveland another year, league sources confirmed to FOX 8 News on Tuesday, but that story changed later in the evening after the huge Odell Beckham Jr. deal.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that after the OBJ trade, GM John Dorsey and agent Drew Rosenhaus agreed not to follow through on the verbal agreement with Perriman. Instead, Perriman will sign a one-year, $4 million deal with Tampa Bay, Schefter reported.
Earlier in the day, both Schefter and NFL Networks’ Ian Rapoport reported that the the former first-round draft pick re-signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Browns.
Perriman played in 10 games with the Browns last season, recording 16 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns.
He was selected by Baltimore with the 26th overall pick in 2015 NFL Draft. He spent two seasons with the Ravens.
