When the NY Jets handed Breshad Perriman a one-year, $6.5 million contract around a year ago, the expectation was that he would be able to adequately fill the hole left by the departure of Robby Anderson.
On the surface, it made some sense.
Perriman was a former first-round pick who had battled injuries throughout his career, but he showed flashes of greatness down the stretch with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019.
The hope was that if he could stay healthy, Perriman could more than make up for the loss of Anderson and provide that same field-stretching ability.
