Breshad Perriman didn’t have to travel far to find his latest NFL home. Less than a week after being cut by the Detroit Lions, the journeyman veteran receiver has signed with the NFC North rival Chicago Bears.

Chicago made it official on Monday after initially agreeing to terms over the weekend. To make room on the active 53-man roster for Perriman, the Bears waived LB Josh Woods.

Perriman initially projects as the No. 4 receiver on the Bears, according to Bears Wire’s Alyssa Barbieri. The Lions passed on slotting Perriman into that same level of role in Detroit after an underwhelming, drop-filled summer by the one-time first-round pick of the Ravens. Detroit opted to go with younger, more reliable options in Kalif Raymond newcomer Trinity Benson and claimed KhaDarel Hodge off waivers to bring more grit and special teams oomph.
