Earns deal with Indianapolis
The Colts signed Perriman on Monday.
Perriman appears to have impressed during his recent workout with the Colts and will have a chance to compete for a Week 1 roster spot this offseason. The 2015 first-round pick caught just 20 of 37 targets for 277 yards and two scores over his past two seasons in Tampa Bay, but before that, he totaled 82 receptions for 1,490 yards and 11 touchdowns across three campaigns with three different teams (the Browns, Bucs and Jets). Beyond Michael Pittman (hip), Alec Pierce and Josh Downs (knee), there are no guarantees for Indianapolis' wideout depth chart.

Works out with Indianapolis
Perriman worked out with the Colts on Friday and the team is contemplating signing him, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Perriman spent last season with the Buccaneers, where he caught nine of his 19 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in 11 games. The Colts could now add the 29-year-old to a receiver corps that currently lacks veteran depth behind Michael Pittman.
Inactive in wild-card loss
Perriman was inactive for Monday night's 31-14 wild-card loss to the Cowboys and finished the 2022 regular season with nine receptions (19 targets) for 110 yards and a touchdown, two rushes for minus-seven yards and two fumbles (one lost) across 11 games.
The veteran speedster put together a second consecutive modest season in Tampa Bay, and his inactive status for Monday night's loss was fitting considering he was a healthy scratch for five of the last seven contests overall. Perriman, an impending free agent once again, doesn't figure to command anything more than the veteran minimum on the open market, so it's conceivable he could make a return to the Buccaneers as a depth option for his age-29 season.
One reception to close out season
Perriman brought in one of two targets for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.
Perriman made his first appearance on the stat sheet since Week 9 while seeing his highest allotment of playing time from scrimmage since Week 3 (31 snaps). The veteran wideout may not even garner active status in next Monday night's wild-card matchup against the Cowboys if recent history is any indication, however, as he was left off the game day roster in four of the last six regular-season contests.
Remains healthy scratch Sunday
Perriman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 clash against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The veteran wideout continues to be left off the active roster in favor of fellow speedster Scotty Miller, who'll once again serve as the No. 5 wideout Sunday versus Carolina. Perriman's final chance to garner active status during the regular season comes in next Sunday's Week 18 road matchup versus the Falcons.
