The Jets lost receiver Robby Anderson to the Panthers earlier Tuesday. They replaced him with Breshad Perriman.

Perriman has agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $8 million with $6 million guaranteed, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

Perriman ranks 42 on PFT’s list of top 100 free agents.

Perriman, 26, has played five NFL seasons since the Ravens made him a first-round choice in 2015. He spent last season in Tampa.

Perriman played 645 snaps on offense in 14 games as the third receiver with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Perriman made 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns.

He will play for his fourth team in four years, having spent 2015-17 in Baltimore, including his rookie season when he didn’t play a down, 2018 in Cleveland and last season in Tampa.

In his career, Perriman has 95 receptions for 1,561 yards and 11 touchdowns.

  1. Still don’t think this should prevent the Jets from taking a WR at #11, Perriman definitely did flash at the end of the season but if you’re really committed to building around Darnold and competing in the AFC East I imagine a top flight WR prospect would help a bunch.

  2. The Jets let Robbie Anderson walk (he’s making 10MM/year for 2 years) and signed Breshad Perriman for a bit less. Its probably break even.

    The Jets need to draft Olinement, plus a #1WR.
    Address the other needs next year.

  3. Minimal drop off in talent from Robbie Anderson and they saved $2 million to boot. The general thinking is that the Jets would go with an OL with pick #11. Outside of Chase Young, there is no pass rusher worthy of the #11 pick, so it’s either another OL or a WR. No easy choice, but for me, I’d go with WR, most expecially is CeeDee Lamb is still on the board.

    An all time Ozzie bust like Sergio Kindle or Matt Elam.

    Dude (or ma’am) not sure, why do t you ever comment on the positive articles like owners or players donating to this covid pandemic rather than just trashing every teams posts. Geez.

  5. Breshard Perriman is a better player than Robbie Anderson right now. The Jets are better off.

    ====================================================
    Year 1: Anderson $12 million guaranteed, Perriman $6 million guaranteed.

    Perriman is half the cost. How is this break even?

    Jets got a guy who has shown promise, but is inconsistent and $6 million more to spend than if they paid Anderson who is good, but now too expensive. Jets got the best of the deal for sure.

    4 teams in 4 years is not good. That’s a textbook journeyman.

    Exactly. why on earth would you give a bust like this 6 mil per? at best, it is 3 million prove it deal for 1 year with limited guarantees and a camp invite. rosenhaus is amazing

  8. Just think less than 20 catches per season gets you an $8Mil deal in the NFL. And owners complain about costs!

  9. I don’t care how “great” he was TB last year. He’s failed to live up to his expectations as a first round draft pick. He was a complete wash in Baltimore and Cleveland. This is a huge overpay for the Jets.

    He’s still relatively young and it’s low-risk one-year contract. Not gonna be a #1 WR, but if he pans out in a lower-tier role, it works. If not, not a substantial loss.

    I remember when the Ravens drafted him. Looked like he was 43 coming out of college. Actually looks younger now than he did then.

  11. This guy was horrible here in Tampa Bay for the first few games. I totally wanted him released because we was wasting space on the field. He was dropping everything, etc. However, when Evans and Godwin went down he totally turned it around the last few games. The question for the Jets is which version are they going to get.

  12. Ran into him near the Ravens training facility his rookie season, good guy, hope the best for him.
