The Buccaneers have agreed to a new deal with Breshad Perriman. It’ll be a one-year contract for the veteran wide receiver. According to Greg Auman of The Athletic (on Twitter), Perirman inked the veteran salary benefit, meaning he’ll get the league-minimum $1.12MM (plus $152K bonus).
Perriman’s first stint with the Bucs came in 2019, when he registered 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns. That performance earned him a one-year, $8MM deal ($6MM guaranteed) from the Jets. He had a solid season in New York during the 2020 campaign, finishing with 511 yards from scrimmage.
In 2021, he was initially set to play with the Lions, but he was dropped before the final cut. He later joined the Bears, but was released without appearing in a single snap. Upon his return to Tampa, Perriman was jockeyed between the active roster and the practice squad. In six regular season games, he notched eleven catches for 167 yards. He also saw a little bit of playoff action, notching one grab for five yards in his first ever postseason appearance.
In other Bucs news, they’ve also swung a trade for Tom Brady‘s old pal Shaq Mason. The veteran guard graded out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 4 ranked guard last year but only cost Tampa a fifth-round pick.
