Chargers, Denzel Perryman Agree To One-Year Deal

The Los Angeles Chargers and free-agent veteran linebacker Denzel Perryman agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal on Sunday, according to a source. Perryman was the Chargers' second-round pick in 2015 out of Miami of Florida and was with the team in San Diego and LA from 2015-2020. In his six seasons with the Bolts to begin his NFL career, the 31-year-old had 250 solo tackles, five sacks, 26 tackles for loss, eight QB hits three interceptions, six passes defended, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in 69 games (51 starts). His best season came in 2021 with the Las Vegas Raiders, though, when he had a career-high 154 combined tackles in 15 starts to earn his first Pro Bowl nod. Perryman hasn't been as good the last two years with the Raiders and Houston Texans, although he'll be providing a veteran presence for the Chargers after Eric Kendricks moved on in free agency.

Denzel Perryman Could Return To Chargers

Free-agent linebacker Denzel Perryman is eyeing a potential return to the Los Angeles Chargers, the team that drafted him in the second round in 2015 out of Miami of Florida. The two sides have been talking about a reunion after Perryman spent the first six years of his NFL career playing for the Bolts. He was a Pro Bowler for the first time in 2021 with the Las Vegas Raiders and spent the 2023 campaign recording 76 tackles (45 solo), half a sack and six tackles for loss in 12 regular season games (11 starts) for the Houston Texans. The 31-year-old veteran was suspended for two games due to illegal hits. While Perryman isn't really much of an option in IDP fantasy leagues at this stage of his career, he would be a nice linebacker addition for a Chargers team that lost Pro Bowler Eric Kendricks in free agency this offseason.

Denzel Perryman Will Play Saturday

Houston Texans linebacker Denzel Perryman (ribs) doesn't carry an injury designation into Saturday's playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens. This is good news after Perryman suffered a ribs injury during the Wild-Card round last weekend. He was able to get through limited practice sessions all week. It appears that is good enough to clear the veteran linebacker for this game. Perryman figures to have a full workload for this divisional round matchup.

Denzel Perryman Suspended Three Games

Houston Texans middle linebacker Denzel Perryman has been suspended for three games without pay by the NFL for repeated violations of playing rules involving health and safety. Perryman lowered his head to hit Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase in the fourth quarter of the Week 10 on Sunday, which resulted in a flag for unnecessary roughness. The 30-year-old was also guilty of the same thing in Week 2 of this year and multiple other times in his career. If Perryman chooses to appeal the suspension, he could be allowed to play in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals until his suspension is heard. Through six games in his first year with the Texans in 2023, Perryman has 41 tackles (25 solo), half a sack and four tackles for loss.

Denzel Perryman Feeling Good

Houston Texans linebacker Denzel Perryman (shoulder) reported he feels "amazing" after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum. Perryman, who inked a one-year deal with Houston this offseason, appeared in only 12 games last season, totaling 83 tackles, a significant decline from the 2021-22 campaign. It's no secret that the 30-year-old has battled injuries over the years. But if he can remain healthy, he could be an asset for IDP managers, even if he doesn't re-enter the Pro Bowl conversation.

Texans Sign Denzel Perryman

The Houston Texans have signed linebacker Denzel Perryman on Wednesday. The veteran linebacker met with the organization last week and clearly liked what they said. The two sides have come to an agreement on a one-year deal for the upcoming season. Perryman was limited to 12 games last season due to injuries. However, he earned himself a Pro Bowl selection in 2021 with a 154-tackle season. The addition of Perryman is a huge upgrade for the Texans defense.

Denzel Perryman To Visit With Texans Thursday

Former Las Vegas Raiders standout linebacker Denzel Perryman is visiting with the Houston Texans on Thursday, according to a source. Perryman has played the last two seasons with the Raiders, making his first Pro Bowl with the team in 2021 when he had a career-high 154 tackles (102 solo), five tackles for loss, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 starts. The 30-year-old ended the 2022 campaign on Injured Reserve due to a dislocated shoulder. He finished last year with 83 tackles (54 solo), one sack, 14 tackles for loss, five QB hits and a career-high two interceptions. Perryman is another potential addition to new head coach DeMeco Ryans' defense.

Denzel Perryman Heading To The Open Market

Linebacker Denzel Perryman is expected to become a free agent after failing to reach an agreement with the Raiders. The 30-year-old appeared in only 12 games last season due to injuries, totaling 83 tackles, two interceptions, and one sack. Perryman should draw interest from multiple teams around the National Football League. However, the former Pro Bowler must stay healthy before even becoming a blip on the fantasy radar, regardless of where he signs next.

Denzel Perryman Ruled Out For Week 15

Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15. This will be Perryman's second straight missed game due to his ankle injury. Despite the missed time recently, the 29-year-old ranks as the No. 8 linebacker in IDP leagues with 85 tackles, three passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 12 games. Fantasy managers in IDP leagues will need to look elsewhere at the linebacker position yet again. In his absence, expect Divine Deablo to continue to have an increased role in the middle of the Raiders defense. The Raiders D/special teams hasn't really been an option all year, but you may want to consider streaming them in DFS against a Browns team decimated by COVID-19 and down to their third-string QB.

Raiders Acquire Denzel Perryman From Panthers

The Las Vegas Raiders acquired linebacker Denzel Perryman and a seventh-round pick in 2022 from the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday night in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick, according to sources. Perryman will be reunited with defensive coordinator Gus Bradley after the two worked together in Los Angeles. The 28-year-old spent the last six years with the Chargers before joining the Panthers in the offseason, but he has also been out with hip flexor and foot injuries this summer. Perryman has yet to play a full season in the NFL because of injuries, but when healthy, he could profile as Las Vegas' starting middle linebacker.
