The team is passing on wide receiver Breshad Perriman’s 2019 option which ensures he’ll be a free agent at the close of the 2018 season even if he makes the final 53-man roster this year.It makes sense Baltimore would decline the option as For wide receivers this year the 5 year option would have cost the Ravens $9.387 million in 2019, and his cap number is only $2.7 million entering 2018.
It’s well documented that Perriman has been a bust since being selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft as Over the course of 3 seasons, he has only accumulated only 43 receptions for 576 yards and three touchdowns in 27 games in that span. That’s something that was big in the team not picking up his option considering Perriman’s draft position, that and baltimore has completely remade their wide receiving corps this offseason. They signed three players in free agency Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead while also adding another two in the draft Jaleel Scott in the 4th round and 1st round talent Jordan Lasley in the 5th round. In addition to those names they ravens also have players who could perform on special teams with Tim white and Chris Moore, so its unlikely the ravens keep him for the 53 man roster unless he suddenly shows up as the 4.24 40 yard dash 1st round pick that the ravens thought he was going to turn out to be.
