Less than a few hours after reportedly losing veteran wide receiver Robby Anderson, who has agreed to a free agent contract with the Carolina Panthers, the New York Jets almost immediately found his replacement. According to a Tuesday evening report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Jets have come to terms with another free agent wide out in Breshad Perriman.
Rapoport is currently reporting that the newly inked pact between Perriman and the Jets is a one-year deal that will be worth up to approximately $8 million for the 2020-21 season. It is also worth noting that the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass catcher will earn $6 million in guaranteed money as a member of the Jets next season.

The 26-year-old Perriman managed to resurrect his NFL career as a member of the Buccaneers last season. After rocky stints with both the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns between 2015 and 2018, the veteran wide out appeared in 14 regular season games for the Buccaneers in 2019, producing a career-best single-season effort. During that same span, Perriman tallied 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns. With all three statistics serving as new single-season career-high marks, he previously scored five receiving touchdowns in total as a NFL wide receiver.
Permian was originally selected by the Ravens with the No. 26 overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Central Florida. Now agreeing to play for his fourth NFL franchise, the Jets, the journeyman pass catcher once again has the opportunity to shine in East Rutherford.
