Browns general manager John Dorsey said he wants to re-sign Perriman, who is scheduled to become a free agent, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/gamelog/_/id/2972460/breshad-perriman
Released by Baltimore at the end of the preseason, Perriman briefly landed in Washington before eventually settling in Cleveland where he looked comfortable for the first time in his career. The 2015 first-round pick caught 16 of 25 targets for 340 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games with the Browns, making a bunch of big plays over the final five weeks of the season. Still only 25 years old, Perriman may lack the hands, toughness and route-running precision to successfully fill a high-volume role, but his raw athleticism proved useful once he settled in as a part-time deep threat. He could draw quite a bit of interest with the upcoming crop of free agents expected to be weak in wideout talent.
Perriman hauled in two of four targets, posting 76 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-18 win against the Bengals.
Perriman has been a downfield threat for Cleveland this season, averaging an unreal 22.7 yards per catch (albeit, on a modest 13 receptions). The fourth-year man is beginning to resemble the first-round talent Baltimore thought it was bringing on with the 26th overall pick in the 2015 Draft. He has a catch of 30-plus yards in three straight games, and a catch of 17-plus yards in six of his past seven appearances. A Week 17 matchup against his former team carries potential to buck that trend, with the Ravens allowing an NFL-low 6.1 yards per attempt this season.
Perriman caught one pass on two targets for 31 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 17-16 win over the Broncos.
For the second straight week, Perriman made an impact on the first drive of the game when Baker Mayfield found him for a 31-yard touchdown. While the duo have connected on two deep passes in the last two weeks, Perriman's involvement on the offense remains limited. Still, he has shown he has the ability for the big play, and Mayfield isn't afraid to chuck it deep to him. Perriman will look to find the end zone for the second time in 2018 against the Bengals in Week 16.
Perriman caught both of his targets for a team-leading 81 yards during Sunday's 26-20 win over Carolina.
Cleveland's first play on offense went for a 66-yard gain, as Baker Mayfield connected with Perriman on a deep pass down the left sideline. Perriman was able to break away from his defender and Mayfield delivered a perfect pass that would've been a touchdown had the receiver not fallen down just short of the goal line. The former Raven was on the field for just 19 offensive snaps, and though he doesn't figure to see much more involvement going forward, he still managed to show he's capable of making the big play.
Perriman hauled in both of his targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 29-13 loss to the Texans.
Perriman has been targeted in all seven of his games with the Browns this season, though he has only surpassed two targets once. The 25-year-old wideout has eight receptions for 107 yards on the season, but doesn't figure to be a key piece of the offense going forward.
