The Ravens will pick up wide receiver Breshad Perriman‘s $649K roster bonus on Saturday, a source tells Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. However, there is still no guarantee that he will be on the Ravens’ initial 53-man roster.
Perriman has been held back by injuries throughout his career. The Ravens had high hopes when they selected him in the first round of the 2015 draft, but he has yet to do much of anything on the field. The UCF product has just 43 catches for 576 yards and three touchdowns in 27 games with the team.
Perriman, who is hoping to participate in the first full training camp of his career, is entering the final year of his four-year, $8.7MM rookie deal. He’ll try to stand out this year while playing behind fellow wide receivers Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead. That is, if he makes the roster.
For what it’s worth, Ravens coach John Harbaugh is hopeful that Perriman can get on the right track this year.
“I’m confident he can do it. I’m hopeful he can do it; I want him to do it,” Harbaugh said earlier this year. “I’ll do everything I can; we’ll do everything we can, as a coaching staff, to make him the best he can be, because we need him to be great. But if it doesn’t work out, then it’s going to be somebody else. That goes for any player.”
