In March, the Lions signed wide receiver Breshad Perriman to a contract that included $2 million guaranteed. They can now kiss that money goodbye.

Perriman has been released by the Lions this morning.

A 2015 first-round draft pick of the Ravens, Perriman has never lived up to expectations in the NFL. He played only 27 games before he was released by Baltimore, and has had even shorter stints in Washington, Cleveland, Tampa Bay and with the Jets.

Now his short stint in Detroit, where his father Brett Perriman was once a 1,000-yard receiver, has come to an end as well.

  1. This is good. Last year’s staff would have kept him because of the money and hoped he came around. He simply failed to earn a job.

  2. Was hoping he worked out. He just dropped too many passes that hit his hands. Loved watching his father.

  3. Only has himself to blame for his career. He has no heart. Did nothing in Baltimore then literally quit Cleveland because he didn’t want to compete with O’dell Beckham when they actually wanted him there. Teams basically see the guy as a temp spot on their roster now for good reason.

  4. Rick ” the magician” Spielman on line 1 . . . looking for a dependable #1 WR.

  5. OK– So the organization keeps playing games with Calvin Johnson and the 1.6 million the organization took back from him, who performed very consistently for 9 seasons — and give 2 million to a receiver who didn’t even make it to the regular season — Same Ole Lions
