The New York Jets have found their Robby Anderson replacement by signing free agent Breshad Perriman to a one-year deal.

As quick as one man was gone is as quick as another replaces him. Wait, maybe Joe Douglas won’t be forced to go wide receiver at No. 11, after all.

The New York Jets and free-agent wide receiver Breshad Perriman have agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with up to $6 million in guarantees, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Perriman, 26, is a 6-foot-2, 209-pound outside weapon who immediately replaces Robby Anderson on the depth chart. Just hours earlier, the former Jets speedster agreed to a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers.

Perriman’s career has been an interesting one up to this point. Drafted 26th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, all Perriman did was disappoint during his three seasons there.

After missing his entire rookie season via a knee injury, Perriman partially tore his ACL in the spring heading into his sophomore campaign. He did play all 16 games that year, collecting 499 yards and three scores on 33 receptions. After suiting up in just 11 games in 2017, he moved onto Cleveland for 2018.

It wasn’t until Tampa Bay a year ago when Perriman truly showcased some of that first-round promise. Playing third fiddle to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, Perriman put up 645 yards and six touchdowns on 36 total grabs over 14 games.

The son of former NFL wide receiver Brett Perriman, Breshad comes to the New York Jets as an injury risk who could yield high-end reward.

First round bust, on his fourth team, started to contribute under Arians, with WR’s Evans & Godwin. Contrast to an UNDFA who was dedicated to his craft and got Better each year despite bad quarterbacking. Contact should be interesting
