According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, after being cut loose by the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, former first-round pick Breshad Perriman is currently on a free agent visit the New York Jets and intends to visit the Buffalo Bills if he cannot come to agreement with Gang Green.
The former UCF wide receiver was the 26th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Ravens and was supposed to be the team’s new long-term deep threat. Injuries and ineffectiveness limited his usage, and after the Ravens went out and signed several quality veterans, Perriman ran out of chances with the team. Still only 24 years old (seven months older than Bills UDFA Robert Foster), the third-year player still has the raw athleticism that saw him drafted in the first round.
The Bills are clearly still concerned about the overall talent of their wide receiver corps and signing Perriman would, at the very least, bring more competition to the unit.
Buffalo plays Perriman’s former team this week in the season opener.
