The Browns re-signed Breshad Perriman earlier today in a deal that was just slightly overshadowed by the team’s acquisition of Odell Beckham Jr. But now that OBJ is in the fold, Perriman apparently doesn’t believe there will be enough passes to go around.
Per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Perriman wants to back out of the one-year, $4MM pact he agreed to. One would think that Perriman, who displayed the deep threat ability that once made him a first-round pick of the Ravens after he signed with Cleveland last season, would still have the opportunity to show off that speed in 2019 to some degree.
But it is true that Cleveland looks absolutely loaded at the skill positions, and OBJ is going to command well over 100 targets, so it’s understandable Perriman would prefer to go to a team that can offer him more chances.
Perriman’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was not immediately available for comment.
