Breshad Perriman Lands With The Jets

March 24th, 2020

Thanks for the memories, Breshad Perriman.

The Bucs’ No. 3 receiver, who played like a true No. 1 receiver over the final five games last season, signed with the New York Jets today. Per NFL Network, it’s a one-year deal for $6 million guaranteed and a chance to earn $8 million.

Is second-year speedster Scotty Miller ready to step up — and stay healthy?

Justin Watson emerged from out of the Bruce Arians doghouse to play well late last season. Can he raise his game in his third season?

Will the Bucs draft a receiver in a loaded class?

Odds are the Bucs didn’t get better today. Perriman, 26, had 506 yards in five touchdowns in the final five games of 2019.

    Good luck Breshad, all the best. Good move to allow him to walk. The $8m will come in handy to extend Godwin and WR is deep in the upcoming draft.

  2. SteveK Says:

    Nice pickup for the Jets!

    Deep, deep WR draft. The price is right for a stud in round 3/4/4comp. pick

  3. Dapostman Says:

    Wow 1 year for 6 mil? Where were the Bucs? So Perriman, Nassib and Barber gone. They paid him 4 mil last year and couldn’t beat that 6 mil? Unbelievable.

  4. SB Says:

    Good luck Breshad. Us letting him go tells me we have better plans.
    Especially now that we have a real GM in TB.

  5. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Good point Stevek.
    There might actually be a method to all these 1 year deals.

  6. BucBeliver Says:

    TB12 can make Mr Irrelevant amazing, so this will work out but Im glad Perriman got a chance to showcase his ability to land a deal$

  7. Kobe Faker Says:

    “TB12 must have a emergency pass catching RB/slot reciever that separates on horizontal routes within 10 yards from LOS

    Than and only than

    Defenses will stop going all out blitz on statue Brady because the ball will be out less than 2 seconds

    IF the 2020 offense can not consistently move the ball with the short passing game

    TB12 will not last 6 games”

    Kobe Faker


  8. MadMax Says:


    Then draft Chase Claypool after snagging Clyde Edwards.

  9. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    “then and only then” Kobe

  10. Mitch Says:

    I don’t understand why many fans believe Brady will get injured. Tampa’s line was 10th in pass blocking last year, and the patriots were 11th. He will be fine.

  11. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Draft is loaded with WR. Best of luck to you Breshad.

  12. Hank Rearden Says:

    trade for Edelman? WTF?

  13. David Says:

    They will find somebody quick to play in the slot. Anyone who’s quick, Brady has turned them into an all pro from the slot.

    ****Bucs super bowl Being replayed right now on NFL

  14. FortMyersDave Says:

    Good luck to Perriman though he is walking into a situation/franchise which some called toxic last year but the Jets did go from 1 dash 6 or so to 7 – 9 so we will see if Gase can capture the momentum….. Perriman did well with Jameis late so maybe he can do wellbwith a young qb who is already hearing footsteps a lot but at least he did not throw 30 picks…..

  15. scot pederson Says:

    We either paid to keep Perriman or pay up to keep Suh and have 1 of the top Dlines in the league. Hard to hold all the positions together.

    I think TB will find Brate & OJ enough times to make up for Perriman because Evans & Godwin are such beasts 15-20 yards or even deeper.

    This will be the Nightmare matchup Brady has not had since he had Randy Moss, W.Welker & Ben Watson in 2007. Those 3 accounted for 37 TDs that year

  16. adam from ny Says:

    perriman made a mistake

  17. adam from ny Says:

    he just left the nfl’s 2020 america’s team

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Uh oh…please don’t sign Brown…

  19. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    Send Jaboo a gift 🎁

  20. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Too bad, Perriman could have done great things in TB but he had no shot being #1 or #2 unless there was an injury. Can’t blame him for a better opportunity.

    This is a deep WR draft and BA already hinted at drafting one.

  21. Fb unmoderated! Says:

    Glad that Breshad came on last year. Married into the golden knights, so have been watching him since college. Wish he would have stayed and shown his stuff, but the quick guy who can get open fast is what Brady needs. Good luck to him and his family. Go knights

  22. Greg Says:

    Best wishes Breshad! He definitely improved from the beginning of the season where he almost looked lost when the ball was on him. His speed is unquestioned but his ball skills suspect. Hopefully he will flourish but he is replaceable and $ better spent.

  23. BUC CHEEKS Says:


  24. Buc50 Says:

    Really hate to lose him but that young man deserved a good payday. I hope he’s a starter for the Jets.

  25. David Says:

    I am watching the Bucs Super Bowl replay on the NFL network.

    That defense does not get enough credit for being one of the all-time great’s.
    ChecK out these stats-

    Bucs defense vs QBs
    Completion % – 50.8
    Pass yds per game – 155.6
    TDS – 10
    Interceptions- 31
    QB rating – 48.4

    Total points against – 196
    Total yds per game against – 252.8

    Every one of these categories led the NFL!

  26. David Says:

    12.2 points a game!

    I miss that D!!

    Plus I think they scored 5 touchdowns

  27. Clueless Snookered Says:

    I think he and Jameis reunite in NYC. Get on the bandwagon, Bucs fans, he’s gonna push that Expedition to NYC:
    And then back to TPA for a little LV LoVe! Brady beware!

  28. Coburn Says:

    Still had a lot to prove. Guess thats’ why he got a one year deal. Seems like a fair bit of money for someone who had a few good games and sucked the rest of the year

  29. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Perriman made a pile of money the back half of the season. He was shaky at best the first half…could have been a justifiable cut for comp. pick purposes. Hopefully Scotty Miller can be a poor man’s Welker/Edelman type. He’s awfully tiny though.

  30. cmurda Says:

    Hat tip to BP for getting paid. I don’t think he’s worth 8 mill but he shined when given the chance.

  31. cmurda Says:

    @David. Bro, that’s my cure when I need a pick-me-up. That SB DVD or the replay brings a tear to the eye. I lived it and consider myself fortunate.

  32. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    We are drafting a WR, no doubt.
    I remember last year we scouted like 30+ WR and it wasn’t even as much of a need then. That tells me BA likes new shiny toys to play with.

  33. rrsrq Says:

    Another receiver Jameis got paid, good luck BP, shoulda came back to get that chance for a ring

  34. Robert James Says:

    the guy went from league min to 8 millon dollars in his last 6 games w bucs. Amazing.. congrats BP

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    Watson played well? Huh? Watson was terrible in those last two games. He caused an INT, was wide open for a TD and tripped on his own feet, he couldn’t get open once teams figured out to just double Perriman. I have no idea how anyone would think Watson played well. Gamepass is free right now, go rewatch those games. Watson should never ever see the field as a WR again.

    The Bucs need to draft someone high or make a trade – they have to have a 3rd and 4th WR, they can’t let what happened at the end of last year happen when you’re selling out to win now.

  36. OBP Says:

    Well on our way to picking up a comp pick in next year’s draft at this rate, I love it.

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    David – The Bucs 2002 defense is the best passing defense in the history of the league. The stats show that. Just look at the playoffs – the Bucs defense – after accounting for their scoring vs points given up, the Bucs defense gave up 3 points. In 3 games. All against top 8 offenses including the #1 offense. They were incredible.

  38. Ndog Says:

    I’ve been messing with you guys all day, but in all seriousness if this team doesn’t start making some moves soon this Brady move is very much going to look like solely a money move. Now it’s still VERY early in the process but at this point we need a 3rd WR, at least a pass catching back, a starting RT, a 2nd team edge rusher, another safety, depth at corner, a backup guard, and a kick/ punt returner. That’s an awful lot to get in one draft and then rely on rookie’s for. Then you add to that they raised ticket prices and it doesn’t look very much like a team that gives a crap about winning or the fans just about how much money they can make. One other thing I want to go on record saying as well. If we were going to move on from Jameis, which we all know I was 100% against, thank goodness it was Brady cause if it would have been Bridgewater, Rivers or Dalton I just don’t know if I could have been excited at all about this team. So in that vein than goodness for Tom Brady.

  39. Steven007 Says:

    Ndog, that’s more like it. Agreed.

  40. Ndog Says:

    I’m board man just having some fun with everyone. Gotta do something to keep all of our posters awake and fired up.

  41. Rod Munch Says:

    The team will likely wait until the post draft cuts are made to really target some vets. Those should be the guys where they can get some great value and you will have guys who will take less to play with Brady. Also the team doesn’t have a ton of issues. WR depth is a huge issue, but again, guys should be out there. RBs are a dime a dozen so I don’t think there should be any issues there. They did sign the backup swing OL guy, so that was a need. Maybe get a S from somewhere as well – that would be ideal. They now have some free money to resign Suh, so they should do that now. Worse case just trade for some guys – they’re already mortgaging their future – so go all in.

  42. FactTeller Says:

    Comp Pick Update

    -Beau Allen
    *Winston [doesn’t count till he signs or does it]


    [Did I miss anybody?]

  43. FactTeller Says:

    -Haeg (OL)

  44. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Chill out everyone…..this is absolutely no surprise……the offense is primarily in tact….
    We will replace Dotson & Barber with draft picks…..and I suspect Watson & Miller to step up into the #3 WR slot….or we may draft a WR also.

    And….think about it….if Brady wanted us to keep Perriman….he’d be here….

    Lets work on getting Suh & if we do, our FA will have been a success.

  45. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    See that’s just a common trend around here. People like to rip on the O line because their alleged eye test/personal beliefs that the O line that can’t block for 4 seconds on every snap is unacceptable.

  46. SappAttack Says:

    Where we at with Suh? I think everyone put him as a higher priority, especially for essentially the money. Give Suh his $10M and let’s go. We can draft offense as much as we want this year, RT, RB, WR all needs now but all deep in the draft. What did we learn in 90’s? It all starts up front. You win if you can pressure the QB, it’s been proven every year

  47. Rod Munch Says:

    Tampabaybucfan – Watson shouldn’t even make the team, and who knows what Scotty Miller will be, the guy can’t even stay healthy so to hand him the #3 role is not going to happen. Maybe #5, but not #3.

    But I do agree people need to chill. Worst case the Bucs trade for some depth after the draft, but there will likely be some quality vets released post draft. Also, if I’m the Bucs, if a tackle I want isn’t there in the 1st, I take a top WR (assuming there isn’t a run on them). Pointed this out before, but Perriman gets $8m, Robby Anderson gets $12m — WR’s are super expensive now, it’s why the Bucs shouldn’t be spending early picks on RBs when they have zero depth at WR, and you have a surplus of RB depth out there.

  48. catcard202 Says:

    Perriman played like crap for 75% of the season & would not have had a breakout DEC – had ME & CG not pulled up lame.

    Feel like the FO/BA have already identified a potential high end replacement….(Private workout of WR Tyler Johnson – MIN)

  49. Rod Munch Says:

    SappAttack – The Bucs really don’t have the money to give Suh $10m, they still have to account for the draft, signing a few vets, and having some money for emergency once the season starts.

    I think they will likely get Suh back, but it will be closer to $6-7m I’d guess.

    The Bucs have $24m in cap, and I think the draft picks are around $9m. So now you get $15m available. They like to save close to $5m for preseason, so that takes us down to $10m available. Then you sign a few, say three, released vets at around $1m each – and with that, you’re at the cap.

    The Bucs can create some cap room if they really want to – Lavonte David’s contract is the one I keep looking at. They could resign him and give him a back loaded deal, that would create some money. Also with Jensen they could do something similar.

  50. Bucsgotachance..todonothing Says:

    Antonio brown

  51. Rod Munch Says:

    Yeah, Brown on a per-game deal, like $250k a game, can be cut at any time and owed nothing. While that salary is low, Brown is broke, so take advantage of that. Maybe put some bonuses in, like if he plays 10 games, he gets $1m, plays 16, he gets $2m — stuff like that.

  52. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Antonio Brown shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near this team, under any circumstances. It’d be as bad as the Albert Haynesworth signing (after New England cut him, they won all of their games, after the Bucs picked him up, they lost all of their games).

  53. Matt Says:

    Guys chill out! As we get closer to the draft there will be some trades and some cap casualties and we will be willing buyers on the low. By the time this all shakes out we will be loaded! I see a few more of our current players’ contracts being reworked then a frenzy of signings. We can’t afford to pay Perriman too because CG is about to get paid.

    Question for everyone.. Will you guys be mad if we trade back into 20s to a QB Hungry team (get a 1st next year and 2nd this year) and draft another receiver like Claypool and then load up on the trenches and rb later? Have y’all looked at his film? He’s a beast.

    Tom Brady will check us into running plays with 3 WR 1Te 1RB sets and who better to have out in the field than ME13 6’5’235, CG6’2’ 218 (best blocking WR in the league) 6’4”230 Claypool and 6’5”265 Oj Howard? Do you guys realize how potent our No huddle is going to be with having such physical WRs? Opponents simply will not be able to substitute fast enough against us and ROJO will run wild.

    No one is talking about ROJO but he’s about to be a fantasy sleeper and put up Pro Bowl numbers. Tom Brady’s hurry up will add at minimum 15 yards per game to Rojo’s numbers and put him over 4.3 y/carry. Not sure why no one is talking about this?

    We kind of do need a 1st or 2nd round receiver on a rookie deal for 4-5 year contract to reduce our cost per player at the WR position. Can you imagine CG, Me13, Claypool!?

    Van Jefferson from Florida is the 2nd best route runner in this draft and he was injured for the combine and should fall into the 4th or 5th round. So if we do address the Oline early, I expect us to draft a value pick WR in the 4th or 5th round and that’s been Licht’s strongest rounds. I’m convinced if Licht just traded all his picks and got like 15 picks each year in the 4th or 5th round we would be the deepest team in football. Maybe this is what Licht is doing with Perriman, banking another compensatory pick next year. Hmmmm…

  54. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    it will take 2 games for Brown to start crying about not getting the ball enough, he is a cancer. Don’t need brown.

  55. Matt Says:

    Why did you delete my post Joe?!?

  56. Jean Lafitte Says:

    The best receiver on the Patriots last season was free agent WR Phillip Dorsett, and it looks like Perriman is replacing FA WR Robby Anderson, who is also still available.

    “@David. Bro, that’s my cure when I need a pick-me-up. That SB DVD or the replay brings a tear to the eye. I lived it and consider myself fortunate.”


    How SURREAL was that? – I remember walking outside moments after the game ended, and just looking around at the trees and the sky, and saying, “Is this REAL? The Tampa Bay BUCCANEERS just WON the frikking SUPER BOWL?????” — Sooo incredible.

  58. Cobraboy Says:

    Good for Perriman. Well done. You came to the Bucs on a “prove it” and you proved it when the team really needed you.

    No way the Bucs could match $8 mil.

    And kudos to Jason Licht for bringing Perriman in on the cheap for a year.

    Win-win for all.

  59. Cobraboy Says:

    @ Jean LaFitte: you think Dorsett is better than Edelman?

    We live in different universes…

  60. WestChap Says:

    Congrats… and a lesson for any FA who needs a prove it year that Bucs are a good proving ground. How incredible that we can lose that kind of talent and still have 2 Pro Bowl receivers coming back.

  61. stpetebucsfan Says:


    “And kudos to Jason Licht for bringing Perriman in on the cheap for a year.

    Win-win for all.”

    Exactly. Sometimes we can’t seem to realize that both parties can win and nothing last forever. I felt the same way about Kwon and Hump…both guys were great Bucs but not nearly great enough to pay the salaries they received. Good for us on getting so much mileage out of a 4th rounder and a UDFA. Good for them for cashing in.

  62. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Demon and Cmurda

    So we’re sharing SB memories. I was on I-75 North taking my mother back to Cincy…she was afraid to fly.

    I pulled over early enough to make sure the motel in the mountains had cable good enough. I told the clerk before paying I would need to see the TV…no good,

    We drove to the next exit and Cumberland University which had a great hotel and a Pizza Hut right next door. It was a DRY county no beer for our pizza.

    Watching the Bucs dominate Chucky’s old team was a thing of beauty…even without beer.
