Just over two weeks after being cut from the Baltimore Ravens, Breshad Perriman has found a home and it’s right down the beltway.

The former first-round wide receiver has signed with the Washington Redskins, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Ravens picked up Perriman’s $649K roster bonus mid-July but decided to part ways with one of the biggest busts in franchise history. Perriman totaled 576 yards and three touchdowns in 27 games.

The bulk of his production came during the 2016 season.

Perriman now joins the Ravens’ interstate rivals, who are in desperate need of receiver production. Alex Smith passed for 292 yards in a 21-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts but running back Chris Thompson was the team’s leading receiver.

Paul Richardson – the Redskins’ top free agent signing – has yet to find the end zone through two games and depth is scare with an inconsistent bunch of Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson, among others.

This will be Perriman’s first chance with an NFL team outside of Baltimore and he’ll have the opportunity to prove himself in a new market with a fresh start.
