Perriman is listed as inactive Sunday against the Chargers.
Perriman was just picked up by the Browns on Saturday, so it's no surprise to see him left off the active roster the following day. He'll look to get better acclimated with the offense this week in hopes of being able to contribute Week 7 in Tampa Bay. In the meantime, Cleveland will move forward with Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callway as the top options at wide receiver, as Rashard Higgins (knee) is inactive Week 6.
Perriman, a 2015 first-round pick, spent his first three seasons in Baltimore. He has worked out with several teams since getting cut by the Ravens prior to the season kicking off, but nothing stuck until now. With Rashard Higgins (knee) and Derrick Willies (collarbone) out for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, Perriman is expected to provide depth at at receiver.
Perriman worked out for the Patriots on Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
The 2015 first-round pick was cut by the Ravens at the end of the preseason and released by the Redskins last week. The Patriots are probably just updating their emergency list, as they recently traded for Josh Gordon and will get Julian Edelman back from suspension next week.
Washingon scooped Perriman up earlier in the week, but his stint with the club will be short-lived. The team has opted to add more running back depth ahead of Sunday's game against the Packers, and Perriman was ultimately the odd man out. The 25-year-old pass catcher spent his first three seasons with the Ravens, but is once again looking for a new opportunity.
Perriman appears to be a consolation prize for the Redskins, who were reportedly in the mix to acquire Josh Gordon from the Browns earlier Monday. In any case, the 2015 first-rounder will now try to resuscitate his career with a Washington team that currently has a solid receiving corps headlined by Jordan Reed, Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson. It's not clear what sort of role Perriman will have out of the gates.
