The Washington Redskins have released wide receiver Breshad Perriman on Saturday morning. Perriman spent just a week with the team.

He signed with the team last week as they took a flier on him. Obviously, it didn’t work out.

The Redskins hoped that when they signed Perriman that he could bring speed to the perimeter. Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson have struggled to get open.

Richardson, who had been battling shoulder and knee injuries, remains questionable. Yet, there is a very good chance that Richardson will suit up on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Perriman, who was the 26th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, has appeared in 27 games in his career. He has four starts.

He has 43 receptions for 576 yards and three touchdowns. He also has one carry for two yards.

Last season in his final campaign with the Ravens, he had 10 receptions for 77 yards.

Perriman, who reportedly also had a workout with the Philadelphia Eagles before signing with the Redskins, will have a hard time finding employment elsewhere because of his persistent drops. He also battled injuries in Baltimore that hurt his cause.
