Browns signing WR Breshad Perriman after rash of injuries
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns are signing free agent Breshad Perriman to address their shortage at wide receiver.
Perriman worked out for Cleveland on Saturday, a day after rookie Derrick Willies broke his collarbone during practice. Willies was going to be the Browns' No. 3 receiver on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers because Rashard Higgins is out with a knee injury.
But with Higgins' status unknown and Willies going on injured reserve, the team is signing Perriman, who was released before the season by Baltimore and spent time with Washington.
Perriman was the No. 26 overall pick in 2015. But injuries and inconsistency have slowed his career. He missed his rookie season with a knee injury. Perriman caught 33 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in his second season.
Rookie Damion Ratley will move into Willies' spot on Sunday and Rod Streater is expected to be active.
