Breshad Perriman feels “a little bit of pressure” to produce more

The Ravens passing attack has been a disappointment across the board this season, which means there’s plenty of places to direct criticism on the roster.

One of those places is in the direction of wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who has not taken a leap in his third season since being selected in the first round of the 2015 draft. Perriman has seven catches and 54 yards on 27 targets, including a throw in last Sunday’s loss that turned into a Titans interception when Perriman didn’t do enough to go up to get it.

Perriman said he is “trying to stay patient” because he knows his moment is going to come, but his continued ineffectiveness raises the question of how long the Ravens are going to stay patient.

“Of course, there’s a little bit of pressure, but you can’t really buy into the pressure,” Perriman said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I kind of put pressure on myself as well, but at the same time, I’ve got to look past that. It’s not really all about me.”

It’s not all about Perriman, but his lack of results since coming to Baltimore make it hard to think that he’s going to be part of the solution to what ails Baltimore’s offense.

  1. 5 catches for 50 yards all season for a first round draft pick. Danny woodhead played only one drive this year and had 3 catches for 33 yards…. At least 3 drops two that bounced off his hands into interceptions. Ozzie drafted this guy in first round with congenital knee problems and bad hands… can’t make it up

  2. Hey Perriman, what are trying to be patient for? This league doesn’t care about you. If you don’t get out there and attack the ball, you’re going to get squashed. And that is exactly what is happening to you. You’re attitude is all wrong man. And if you’re only feeling a little bit of pressure, you don’t have a pulse. This city is PISSED off right now at yoyur lack of production. You’re in you’re 3rd year. You’ve been sidelined with injuries and there is no more PATIENCE left for the fans.

    It’s now or never. I’m betting on never.

  3. As a Patriots fan, I have a lot of experience in recognizing WR draft busts. Trust me, this guy is a bust. Cut him and move on. If you’re not making an impact by year 3, you’re never going to make an impact. Probably about 100 guys on the street right now that would catch more than 30% of their targets.

  4. We all knew this was a bad pick from his rookie camp. Injury prone w bad hands. Size and speed doesn’t matter if u can’t stay healthy and can’t catch a cold.

    Oz can’t draft a receiver, and refuses to sign receivers unless they’re 32 or older.

    Flacco isn’t helping either.

  5. But he had a great off season in shorts with nobody pressuring him (see Flag Football)- that seems to be enough to keep him in the lineup – too many teams wait forever to declare a 1st Rounder a bust and move on

  6. Perriman should feel pressure, he was a first round pick and he has been a complete bust for the Baltimore Ravens who need production from wide receivers and have gotten very little the past couple of years!!!!

  7. Time to move on from him. Hopefully the FO learned a lesson from Perriman, i.e., don’t draft receivers in the 1st round who are fast, but have poor hands. If a receiver doesn’t have everything–speed, hands, appropriate size, history of receptions, ability to get open–then don’t draft him in the 1st round.

    Umm, the Pats run a very complex offense, unlike Baltimore’s jump ball style offense that is one dimensional. BB has some nice hits at WR, too. Givens, Branch, Edelman, Mitchell, etc.

    He prefers to get some with some experience via trade, scrap heap or FA, but let’s not put BB in the Ozzie Newsome level of never having a good WR they developed in house.

    Why can’t Ozzie find a decent wide out in the draft? The misses are starting to mount up!

    Warnings were out. Don’t expect to turn it around anytime soon. Good thing Ozzie is renting players past their prime (Suggs, Weddle, Maclin, Wallace) with high contracts, too.

  10. Far be it for me to give my opinion, but, Perriman wasn’t worthy of a 1st rd pick, but Flacco has been downright bad the last 2 years. Heck, 7 for 57 yards is about an average half for Flacco. The 2 problems are related.
