This past March, the Detroit Lions brought aboard WR Breshad Perriman on a one-year contract.
He met virtually with media members this afternoon, and you can bet Lions fans will be happy with his answer when asked what they can expect to see from him in his first season in the Motor City.
“Big plays”, he answered without hesitation.
Of course, he’ll be catching passes from another new face in Detroit this season who goes by the name of Jared Goff, whom Perriman had already worked out with a few weeks back.
“I’m really excited just to be able to go to work with him. His arm talent is crazy,” Perriman raved. “Could tell he’s really, really talented. Really a cool dude off the field.”
Perriman will sticking with jersey No. 19 this season rather than wear the No. 80 his father Brett wore while playing in Detroit in the 1990’s.
“I need to ride my own wave,” he explained.
Perriman played collegiately at UCF, and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2015. He’s also played for the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in addition to the Jets.
In 63 career games, he’s amassed 125 receptions, 2,006 yards and 14 receiving touchdowns.
