It's time to end the Breshad Perriman experiment

Remember when Breshad Perriman was going to breakout? How I miss the halcyon days of the offseason.

Not only is Perriman not performing up to his first round billing, his play is less than zero. He has reached the point of actively hurting the team when targeted. We knew that drops were an issue when he was coming out of college but what were touted as concetration drops were actually a technique issue. Perriman uses the clasping technique to try to catch the ball. He did in college and as not improved in this area as a professional.

Perriman has only flashed sparingly and if he were to depart, this current version of this Ravens offense would not miss him. His potential skill-set is duplicated in Mike Wallace and Chris Moore, though the latter only presents it in theory.

Perriman will likely play the duration of his rookie contract with the team. His fifth year option will not be picked up and the fact that he hasn't shown much will influence the front office's decisions as the drafting of early round wide receivers is concerned. The Ravens still haven't found a go-to target out wide. Breshad Perriman will not become that player. That much is clear.
