New Jets WR Breshad Perriman Ready for a Breakout Season

Breshad Perriman believes 2020 will be his breakout season — finally, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

The Jets’ new receiver hasn’t lived up to the expectations that come with being a first-round pick. But Perriman expects that to change this year in Adam Gase’s offense as he plays a more prominent role than he’s had in the past.

“You see that the receivers that he’s had and the numbers they’ve put up every time in his system,” Perriman said during a conference call Friday. “I have no doubt in my mind that this definitely will be a season to remember for me as far as production-wise. I’m just really excited for the opportunity that I will get just being in this] offense and being in a bigger role.”

Perriman agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal the same day the Jets lost Robby Anderson to Carolina. He comes in with big question marks, though.

The Jets are Perriman’s fourth team since he was taken 26th overall by Baltimore in 2016. But he said he’s eager to “prove to the ones who have any doubt in their mind wrong.”

He had a terrific final month of the season for the Buccaneers, who made him more of a focal point after losing Mike Evans and Chris Godwin to injury. Perriman caught 20 passes for 419 yards and five touchdowns in the last four games. He believes that was “a tiny glimpse” of what he can do for the Jets, even if slot receivers are the ones who generally excel under Gase.

“I think that’s just a sneak peek of what’s to come for this season and many other seasons,” Perriman said. “I just feel like that was just a tiny glimpse. I’m looking forward to build from that little run I had at the end of last season.”
