The Baltimore Ravens will not pick up wide receiver Breshad Perriman’s fifth-year option. Perriman was drafted by the Ravens in the first round of the 2015 draft and only has three touchdown receptions in three seasons.
Perriman spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury and has never lived up to expectations. Perriman’s best season for the Ravens was in 2016 when he had all his three career touchdowns and at the end of the season showed some promise.
Last season, Perriman only caught 28.6% of passes thrown to him. Perriman only had 77 receiving yards in 2017 and was inactive a lot of games towards the end of the season because of lack of production.
The biggest knock on Perriman is his hands. Perriman has turned very well placed balls into interceptions because he has been unable to hold onto the football.
The Ravens have drafted wide receivers Jaleel Scott and Jordan Lacey and have also signed Michael Crabtree, Willy Snead and John Brown. Perriman will have to have a strong training camp and preseason in order to make the Ravens 53-man roster. If Perriman does not make the Ravens 53-man and have a great season in 2018 he will be looked at as one of the biggest busts in Ravens history.
