This is an odd one.
The Browns were rumored to have re-signed wide receiver Breshad Perriman to a one-year, $4 million deal Tuesday, but that deal has apparently fallen through.
After Cleveland’s reported acquisition of wideout Odell Beckham Jr. from the Giants, general manager John Dorsey and Perriman’s agent Drew Rosenhaus agreed the wide receiver would be better off elsewhere.
So now, according to ESPN, Perriman is signing the same deal, but with the Buccaneers.
After trade for Odell Beckham Jr., Browns’ GM John Dorsey and agent Drew Rosenhaus mutually agreed to not to follow through on verbal agreement with WR Breshad Perriman, per @mortreport and me. Perriman now will sign a one-year, $4 million deal with Tampa Bay, per source.

Perriman caught 16 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns with the Browns last season. He signed with Cleveland after he was released by the Ravens three years after the team took him with a first-round pick.
The 25-year-old receiver led Cleveland in yards per reception (21.3) but only caught 64 percent of the passes directed his way on the year.
Perriman will sign with a Buccaneers team that just traded DeSean Jackson to the Eagles on Monday.
