Bears Have Officially Signed Veteran Wide Receiver


The Chicago Bears have officially added a veteran wide receiver.

Chicago has signed 27-year-old wide receiver Breshad Perriman. The team announced the roster move on Monday morning.

The Bears on Monday officially announced the signing of veteran receiver Breshad Perriman and waived linebacker Josh Woods.

Perriman, who turns 28 on Friday, has appeared in 63 NFL games with 22 starts over five seasons with the Ravens (2016-17), Browns (2018), Buccaneers (2019) and Jets (2020). The 6-2, 215-pounder has caught 125 passes for 2,066 yards, a 16.5-yard average, and 14 touchdowns.

The Bears are excited to have him.

“Big-time speed,” GM Ryan Pace said. “We’ve talked about him, I feel like, every year. We’ve gone back and looked at our grades. We’ve got tons and tons of grades on him, from all of our coaches and all of our scouts. [Speed] has been the one trait. He’s big. He’s 6-2. He can still run and that’s just continuing the speed and explosiveness in this offense.”

Perriman was a first round pick out of UCF in the 2015 NFL Draft. He played for the Ravens through the 2017 season. Since then, he’s bounced around the league, playing for Washington, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New York and Detroit.

The Bears open the 2021 season on Sunday against the Rams.

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. E.T. on NBC.
