Inactive again Sunday

Perriman (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Bengals.

Analysis: For the second straight game, Perriman is a healthy scratch for the Bears as he awaits his debut with the team. Based off Week 1 snap counts, the team will rely on Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd and Marquise Goodwin at wide receiver Sunday.

Sitting out Sunday

Perriman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's road game against the Rams.

Analysis: The Bears scooped Perriman off waivers after cut-down day, but his debut with the team will have to wait. With the veteran sidelined, Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney will serve as the team's top two wide receivers as expected. Meanwhile, Marquise Goodwin, Damiere Byrd and Nsimba Webster are available for any WR reps that filter down the depth chart.

Signs with Chicago

Perriman is signing a one-year deal with the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The division-rival Lions released Perriman a day earlier, opting instead for the likes of Kalif Raymond, Trinity Benson, Tom Kennedy and KhaDarel Hodge. It wasn't a great sign for Perriman's NFL future, but it is worth noting that the Lions are in Year 1 of a rebuild, whereas Bears coach Matt Nagy is arguably facing a make-or-break season. Perriman could now challenge Marquise Goodwin for the No. 3 receiver spot in Chicago.

Let go by Lions

The Lions will release Perriman, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Perriman was a free-agent acquisition who seemed destined for a key role with the Lions, but after missing time in training camp with a hip injury and making a limited impact in the preseason, he'll look to catch on elsewhere. With Perriman no longer in the mix, Tyrell Williams, Quintez Cephus, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond now look poised to lead the team's wideout corps, with the likes of Geronimo Allison, Tom Kennedy, Victor Bolden and Javon McKinley battling for depth slotting.

One catch Friday

Perriman caught one of three targets for six yards in Friday's preseason loss to the Colts.

Analysis: The 27-year-old made his first grab in a Detroit uniform early in the first quarter with Tim Boyle (thumb) under center, before a couple misfires once David Blough took over. Perriman is headed for a starting role Week 1 against San Francisco, but the 2015 first-round pick is on his fifth team in six years for a reason, having never caught more than 36 passes or amassed more than 645 receiving yards in a season.

Catchless in Lions debut

Perriman was targeted twice but did not record a catch during Saturday's 26-20 preseason loss to Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Perriman actually had three targets but was called for offensive pass interference on a 27-yard gain. Regardless, the 26-year-old at least looked healthy after missing a significant portion of training camp plus the preseason opener due to a hip injury. While his preseason is probably over if we can assume that all of Detroit's starters will be rested during the exhibition finale next Friday against Indianapolis, Perriman seems ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season.

Still slated for starting role

Despite missing part of training camp and the preseason opener due to injury, Perriman (hip) is still expected to handle a starting role opposite Tyrell Williams, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Analysis: With Amon-Ra St. Brown the favorite to handle slot duties, there aren't any serious contenders for Perriman's job on the perimeter anyway, especially with Quintez Cephus (head) missing significant time as well. While it's not clear when Perriman will return to the field, he at least dressed for last week's preseason game against the Bills, per Chris Burke of The Athletic.

Aug 16, 2021 10:03 AM EST

Misses practice Saturday

Perriman (hip) did not practice Saturday, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Analysis: Tyrell Williams (groin) and Quintez Cephus (head) also did not practice so it could be as simple as the Lions choosing to play it safe with three of their top pass catchers. Perriman's lackluster training camp might be of bigger concern than any sort of lingering injury, although considering the 27-year-old's lengthy injury history any sort of ailment no matter how small is worth noting.

Suboptimal offseason showing

Perriman has been less consistent than Tyrell Williams in spring practices, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: While it's too early in the offseason to come to hard conclusions, Perriman seems no higher than No. 2 on the depth chart entering training camp. A few young receivers on the depth chart below him, namely fourth-round rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown and the second-year Quintez Cephus, seem to be making a push for higher slotting as well. However, at 6-foot-2 with blazing 4.24 speed, Perriman certainly has physical tools that no other wideout on the team, besides Williams, can approach. Should Perriman stay healthy this summer, it would be a surprise if he fell any lower on the depth chart.

Links up with Lions

The Lions and Perriman agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Like father, like son. Upon joining the fifth team of his career, Perriman will move on to Detroit, where his father Brett spent most of his 10-year career. The younger Perriman has found life as a deep threat that past three seasons, ripping off 18.2 YPC and 11 touchdowns on his 82 receptions. There's a clear opening in the Lions' passing attack with all of Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola moving on, so Perriman should be a regular target of Jared Goff in 2021.

Totals 505 receiving yards in 2020

Perriman caught three of six targets for 84 yards in Sunday's season-ending 28-14 loss to New England.

Analysis: Perriman suited up in 12 games after signing a one-year deal with New York, catching 30 balls for 505 yards and three touchdowns. His best stretch came when gun-slinging backup Joe Flacco took over under center, as starter Sam Darnold failed to push the ball downfield to the speedster with any consistency. Perriman's fantasy outlook next season will be determined by where he ends up in free agency, as he needs a strong-armed quarterback to maximize his skill set, which consists primarily of catching deep balls.

Jan 3, 2021 3:41 PM EST

Late-season slump continues

Perriman caught none of his six targets and rushed once for six yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over Cleveland.

Analysis: Perriman dropped what would have been a chunk gain down the sideline on the opening drive and failed to come down with either of his other two first-half targets. He finally got the ball in his hands on an end-around early in the third quarter but had a would-be long touchdown go through his hands later in the quarter and ended up without a reception all afternoon. With just one catch over his last two games and five catches in the past four contests, Perriman's trending in the wrong direction ahead of next week's season finale against the stingy New England secondary.

Dec 27, 2020 3:48 PM EST

Just one target in team's first win

Perriman caught his lone target for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Rams.

Analysis: New York shockingly played from ahead throughout the game, so the offense was able to settle into a rhythm consisting of runs and safe, short throws rather than downfield shots to Perriman. Assuming the Jets are unable to carry over the momentum from their first win of the season into a Week 16 matchup with the likely playoff-bound Browns, Perriman should get more opportunities to stretch the field against the mistake-prone Cleveland secondary.

Turns in full practice

Perriman (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: After being limited in the Jets' first Week 15 practice Wednesday, Perriman's upgrade to full activity clears the way for him to play Sunday against the Rams. Meanwhile, Jamison Crowder (calves) returned to practice as a limited participant Thursday, and Denzel Mims (personal) rejoined the team Wednesday, leaving the Jets poised to have their top three receivers all available in the same game for one of the few times this season.

Dec 17, 2020 1:51 PM EST

Limited practice on tap

Perriman (shoulder) will be limited at practice Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Limited practices on Wednesday have been the norm for Perriman, who's been managing a shoulder issue, but we'd expect him to be cleared to play in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams. With Denzel Mims (personal) slated to practice Wednesday and Jamison Crowder (calf) expected back on the field Thursday, the Jets could have all three of their top wide receivers available for Week 15 action.

Dec 16, 2020 9:10 AM EST

Does little with six targets

Perriman caught three of six targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: He led the Jets in targets and tied Braxton Berrios for the team lead in receptions, but Perriman failed to do much with his opportunities. The 27-year-old wideout has managed only an 8-127-0 line on 18 targets over the last three games, giving him little momentum heading into Week 15's road matchup with the Rams.

Dec 13, 2020 6:42 PM EST

Ramps up to full practice

Perriman (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Seahawks after practicing fully Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Perriman continued his pattern from recent weeks, starting the week in limited fashion before ramping up to full activity Friday. He caught just one pass for 22 yards last week after totaling 11 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns over the previous three games, but Perriman's in prime position to bounce back against the league-worst Seattle pass defense. With Denzel Mims (personal) out and Jamison Crowder (calf) questionable, Perriman will likely be the top option in the Jets' passing game.

Dec 11, 2020 1:47 PM EST

Another limited session

Perriman (shoulder) will remain limited at practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Over the last few weeks, Perriman has been limited both Wednesday and Thursday, before practicing fully Friday. Look for that pattern to occur once again in Week 14. If it it does, Perriman should approach Sunday's game against the Seahawks minus an injury designation and would be set to head the team's wideout corps this weekend along with Jamison Crowder, with Denzel Mims (personal) unavailable for the contest.

Dec 10, 2020 8:33 AM EST

Logs limited practice

Perriman (shoulder) will be limited at practice Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Though Perriman was on the field for 59 of the Jets' 62 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's loss to the Raiders, he caught just one of his four targets for 22 yards. We'll operate under the assumption that the wideout's Wednesday limitations are maintenance-related and that he'll be available to play this weekend against the Seahawks, who've given up a league-high average of 309.8 passing yards per game to date.

Dec 9, 2020 8:48 AM EST

One catch in Week 13 loss

Perriman caught one of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Sam Darnold posted his first multi-score performance of the season through the air but primarily worked underneath rather than searching out Perriman downfield. New York's struggles under center give Perriman a low floor -- which he showcased in this one -- but the speedster's ceiling will be high in Week 14 against the beatable Seattle secondary.
