Breshad Perriman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Breshaud Perriman has had trouble finding a team to settle down with on a long-term basis. He has played for four teams in his first seven years in the league with three of those seeing him on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster.

Perriman only caught 20 passes in his last two seasons but the former first-round pick of the Ravens in 2015 but showed flashes of potential in 2016, 2019, and 2020 and could shine if given more opportunities.

Standing six-foot-two and weighing 215 pounds, Perriman has the physical tools to succeed in the NFL but hasn’t been in a situation where he has been able to showcase his full potential as a receiver.

A short contract could give him a chance to prove himself on a team that needs to find a contributor. Last season, he played for Tampa Bay on a deal worth $1.2725 million, so it wouldn’t take much for the Minnesota Vikings to roll the dice on a player with some potential who has flashed at times.
