4. Perriman recorded career highs in 2019

Turns out, Perriman’s first and possibly only season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers turned out to be the receiver’s best one.

Even if most of Perriman’s numbers came from the final three games of the regular season while the Buccaneers were hurting at the position, this shouldn’t take away from the former Central Florida star finishing 2019 with a career season.

36 catches for 645 yards with six touchdowns for Perriman certainly doesn’t stand out like some of the other receivers across the league, but at least this gives the wide receiver plenty to build off from moving forward.

Around this time last offseason, Tampa Bay knew they had nothing to lose in signing Perriman since the numbers from his first three NFL seasons were far from impressive.

Not to mention, just because Perriman finished with career highs last season doesn’t necessarily mean he will be able to top these numbers again in 2020 since there are no guarantees when it comes to the NFL.

But all things considered, if the Eagles could convince Perriman to come on board at the right price, the potential reward seems worth the risk to provide Philadelphia with another reliable option to work with in the passing game.
