The Daily News first reported the explosive Jets wide receiver agreed to terms on a deal to join the Panthers.
Perriman will sign a one-year contract that could worth up to $8 million and includes $6 million in guarantees, Rosenhaus told ESPN's Adam Schefter. But the Browns allowed him to back out of the deal after they acquired Odell Beckham Jr. The release saved the team $19.1 million in cap space.
Perriman will give the Jets receiving corps a boost, joining Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Quincy Enunwa, who's trying to return from a neck injury that sidelined him for all but the season opener past year. Quincy Enunwa's status is murky, as he's attempting to return from a serious neck injury. Operating as the third receiver behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' top-ranked pass offense, Perriman recorded career highs of 36 catches, 645 yards, and six touchdowns. Three of those scores came in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions, for whom his father, Brett Perriman, played in the 1990s.
