Free agent Breshad Perriman has crazy speed — he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.24 seconds at the NFL scouting combine in 2015 — and at age 26, still has plenty left in those legs.
He bumped up his stock with a strong finish for the Bucs in 2019, posting 100-plus-yard performances in each of his past three games with four total touchdowns.
Eagles vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl was with the Baltimore Ravens when they selected Perriman in the first round out of Central Florida. He should have a good read on how Perriman is wired, why he hasn’t quite lived up to expectations of yet, and whether he’d be a good fit in Philly. From a skill perspective, Perriman checks several boxes, and would give Wentz another big-play threat.
Next-level stat: He finished third in average targeted air yards (16.1) in 2019, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, and was tied for fourth in average yards per reception (17.9).
