Patriots Work Out WR Breshad Perriman

The Patriots worked out free agent wide receiver Breshad Perriman today, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link).

New England’s wideout situation has been dire for most of the season, but the club’s depth chart is beginning to come into focus. Not only is the recently-acquired Josh Gordon expected to suit up this week, but Julian Edelman will return from suspension in Week 5. Those two options, along with holdovers Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, and Cordarrelle Patterson, give the Patriots a viable receiving corps.

Perriman, the 26th overall selection in the 2015 draft, has never lived up to his draft billing, as injuries and ineffectiveness have prevented him from reaching his potential. After missing his entire rookie campaign, Perriman posted 33 receptions in 2016, but managed only 10 catches last year. He signed with the Redskins earlier this month, but lasted less than a week on Washington’s roster.

A number of teams have expressed interest in Perriman this year, as he’s worked out for the the JetsGiants, BillsVikings, and Eagles over the past month.
