Redskins Waive WR Breshad Perriman, Promote RB Kapri Bibbs


Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Redskins are waiving WR Breshad Perriman on Saturday, but they indicated that they could re-sign him at some point in the near future.

According to John Keim, Washington is promoting RB Kapri Bibbs to their active roster.

Perriman, 24, is a former first-round pick out of Central Florida by the Ravens in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of his four-year, $8.705 million rookie contract and was set to earn a base salary of $972,606 for the 2018 season when he was cut loose coming out of the preseason.

The Redskins just recently signed Perriman to a contract.

In 2017, Perriman appeared in 11 games for the Ravens and recorded 10 receptions for 77 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him as the last overall receiver out of 116 players.

Bibbs, 25, signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State back in 2014. Bibbs was been on and off of the Broncos’ practice squad before returning to Denver on a one-year, exclusive rights deal in 2016.

The 49ers traded Bibbs and a 2017 fifth-round pick to the Broncos in return for a 2018 fourth-round selection, but he was cut loose coming out of the preseason last year and later signed to the Redskins’ practice squad.

Washington waived Bibbs at the start of the regular season and later re-signed him to their practice squad.

In 2017, Bibbs appeared in three games and rushed for 79 yards on 21 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 14 receptions for 128 yards receiving and a touchdown.
