Breshad Perriman has seen his name linked to the Eagles just about every day since that first wave of signings concluded. By now, you know the story. He was drafted in the first round of 2015’s draft, and he had a strong start to his career before some subpar play landed him in the state where he played his college ball.
A single season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019 was his best. This six-foot-two, 215-pound prospect caught 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns, but the question remains,
Did he really turn the corner or did he overachieve in a contract year? There’s only one way to find out. So far, no one’s pulled the trigger. Update: signed with Jets on March 24th
Signing a guy seen largely as a very expensive one-trick pony was a turnoff for all 32 NFL teams when the “Free Agency Frenzy” began. One week later, a more humble and ignored Robby Anderson looks more attractive as a less expensive option.
That’s not saying that he’s arrogant, but there’s something to seeing that every team agreed that they didn’t want to pay you what you think you should be earning.
Sure, everyone has expressed their doubts, but Robby Anderson can do more harm than good for just about every team looking for a wide receiver, especially if the price tag is less than we all thought it would be. He just can’t wear the number 11 if Philly scops him up. Update: Signed with Panthers on March 24th
