Perry signed a contract with the Titans on Thursday.
Analysis: Perry played in 11 games with the Bills last season but was almost exclusively a special teams player and will likely fill a similar role with the Titans in 2020, should he make the team.
Perry, who logged just three rushes for three yards in 2019, will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Analysis: Frank Gore appears set to move on or retire, which would seemingly bump Perry up the depth chart, but the Bills have plenty of draft capital and cap room, and they're almost certainly going to stack the deck behind long-term starter Devin Singletary with a lot more than Perry can offer. Practice squad member Christian Wade also appears to offer far more upside. Perry remains a good special teams player, logging 192 snaps on those units over 11 games, so perhaps the Bills will keep him around in a No. 4 or No. 5 role.
Perry was re-signed Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Analysis: The running back made a good impression throughout training camp but suffered a quad injury, ended up on IR, and was ultimately given an injury settlement. With Zay Jones being traded to the Raiders, there was an extra spot on the roster and the Bills will use it to beef up their running back room, one where rookie Devin Singletary is still working his way back from a hamstring injury. Perry was eligible to return because six weeks have passed since the aforementioned settlement.

Analysis: Perry likely wasn't going to make the team anyway, nor was this considered a season-long injury, so he can now get to work on his next NFL destination. The Bills could re-sign Perry after a certain period of time has passed if he finds no other suitors and if one of their current running backs doesn't work out.
Updating a previous report, Perry has been placed on injured reserve due to a quad injury, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The initial report indicated Perry had been waived/injured, though that plan still seems to be in the cards in a couple of weeks. Perry's injury is not considered serious.

Analysis: Perry's best bet to make the team was as a special teams standout, but between him being on the roster bubble and having an injury to boot, he loses out and will have to look for work elsewhere once he's healthy. O.J. Simpson remains the most recent Bills player to wear No. 32 in a regular season game.
Perry is dealing with a quad injury, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Analysis: The man sporting O.J. Simpson's former No. 32 is on the roster bubble, so the injury comes at an unfortunate time. If Perry can get back at it soon, he'll have his chance to make a final roster push, where his special teams acumen gives him the best chance.
Perry rushed once for three yards and lost a fumble in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.
Analysis: Perry got his chance on the first play of the Bills' second drive of the game and promptly put the ball on the ground. Whille that won't help his hopes of making the roster, he at least seems to have recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out earlier in the week.
Perry missed practice Sunday due to an ankle injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Analysis: Perry is coming off a nice preseason outing where he scored a touchdown on four carries for 10 yards and also caught a 15-yard pass. For a guy who's battling for the final running back spot, the injury comes at an inopportune time.
Perry signed a contract with the Bills on Thursday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Perry led the Dolphins' in special-teams tackles last season and is likely being brought to Buffalo to serve in a similar capacity. Unless the Bills suffer a rash of injuries at running back, he's highly unlikely to make much of an offensive contribution in 2019.
Perry didn't record an offensive snap in 2018.
Analysis: Perry played 303 snaps on special teams, racking up 164 kick return yards in limited usage. Even after Frank Gore (foot) was placed on injured reserve, Perry remained firmly behind Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage and Brandon Bolden on the offensive depth chart. Set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, it remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will suit up with the Dolphins in 2019.
Perry ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on four carries to go along with two receptions for 10 yards during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers on Thursday.
Analysis: Perry was productive despite a small workload Thursday, amassing 45 total yards and a score on just six touches out of the backfield. The 26-year-old is looking to prove himself as more than just a special teamer in Miami, while his performance thus far has certainly improved his chances of making the 53-man roster as the No. 4 running back behind Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and Kalen Ballage.
