The Bengals later claimed Perine off of waivers before waiving him in October and later re-signing him to their practice squad. From there, the Dolphins added him to their active roster in December.
In 2019, Perine appeared in seven games for the Bengals and Dolphins and rushed for 16 yards on five carries (2.3 YPC) and no touchdowns or receptions.
