*Updated at 11:18PM to reflect remarks of Perriman wanting out of Cleveland.
It is being reported that Browns WR Breshad Perriman will sign a 1-year $4 million deal with the Buccaneers. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
After trade for Odell Beckham Jr., Browns’ GM John Dorsey and agent Drew Rosenhaus mutually agreed to not to follow through on verbal agreement with WR Breshad Perriman, per @mortreport and me. Perriman now will sign a one-year, $4 million deal with Tampa Bay, per source.

In three seasons Perriman collected 916 yards and five touchdowns. This signing will help fill a void left by DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries. Look for the Bucs to continue to add to their WR pool in a heavy wideout offense under Bruce Arians.
Reportedly they would have kept him if he desired to stay. HC Freddie Kitchens said,
“Breshad’s a good football player,’’ head coach Freddie Kitchens said at the NFL Combine two weeks ago. “Breshad had more success with us than he has with anybody else, so of course we’ve got plans for Breshad moving forward and hopefully we get him back.”
Now, Perriman gets a fresh start with a team in need of another wide receiver. The details of the contract are not yet known. Stay tuned for those details.
