In a continued look at free agents the Arizona Cardinals could sign, today we look at New York Jets receiver Breshad Perriman.
As Jess and Seth noted in the most recent podcast, Perriman always seems to be a low-risk, high-reward type of guy at the receiver position.
The negative of being that type of player is that Arizona seems to be in win-now mode, so a risky number 2 receiver wouldn’t seem to be the best option to help them take an extra step.
However, he would still in theory be a good fit, as he typically has averaged above 15 yards per reception in his career, this providing a good field stretcher to the high-volume top option DeAndre Hopkins (similar to what Will Fuller did in Houston).
Last year with the Jets, Perriman finished with 30 receptions for 505 yards (a 16.8 average) to go along with a 63.1 PFF grade, which is not awful, considering the Jets’ QB woes. His best season was in 2019, with 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns on a pass-happy Tampa Bay team.
Not to mention, he wouldn’t cost as much as someone like Ju-Ju Smith Schuster or even a TY Hilton. Spotrac estimates his market value to be $8.8 million per year, but given the lack of money available to several teams, it would not be surprising to see him take another one-year deal similar to the one with the Jets last season at $6.5 million.
What do you all think? Should the Cardinals take a chance on Perriman and hope he can help fill the void at their number 2 receiver spot?
