Perkins officially secured a reserve/future contract with Indianapolis on Sunday. Toward the end of the 2020 campaign, Perkins spent time with the Colts' practice squad and now has a future contract with the team. The 26-year-old didn't suit up for a game this year and will likely serve as a depth option in the backfield in the upcoming season.
Perkins signed a contract with the Colts' practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Perkins bounced around practice squads last season and also logged 29 yards on 12 rushing attempt in four games with the Lions. Perkins will add a veteran presence and depth to the organization, as the team is currently set with Jonathan Taylor, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines at running back.
Perkins inked a deal with the Ravens' practice squad Tuesday. Perkins has bounced around this year, making stops with the Giants, Lions and Jaguars, but he only suited up in four games with the Lions. He'll add necessary depth to the Ravens' backfield since Mark Ingram is working through a nagging calf injury.
The Jaguars signed Perkins to the practice squad Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. Perkins appeared in four games with the Lions earlier this season, racking up 29 yards on 12 carries while catching his only target for nine yards. He'll wait in the wings for a depth opportunity to open up in Jacksonville's backfield.
Perkins was waived by the Lions on Saturday. This is now the third time Perkins has been waived by the Lions since the team picked him up off waivers from the Giants in mid-September. The 2016 fifth-round pick is certainly a candidate to rejoin the team at some point down the road, but considering the Lions signed Bo Scarbrough off the practice to replace Perkins, it's clear the team is looking for a different answer at the running back position.
