Breshad Perriman, Baltimore Ravens strike rookie deal


The Baltimore Ravens have their entire 2015 draft class under contract.

First-round wide receiver Breshad Perriman signed with the Ravens on Monday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, via agent Drew Rosenhaus. The deal is for $8.7 million over four years with a $4.6 million signing bonus.

Perriman was the last of Baltimore's draft picks to sign.

He struggled with drops in college, but caught the ball consistently well in rookie minicamp, per's Jamison Hensley.

The Ravens opted against signing a veteran to replace the departed Torrey Smith, which leaves Perriman with an opportunity to start opposite Steve Smith.

Citing Perriman's rare combination of size and speed, Around The NFL's Marc Sessler chose the former UCF star as the rookie wide receiver who will make the biggest impact in 2015.
