Denzel Perryman: Washington Football Team

Denzel Perryman’s days with the LA Chargers are most likely over. While Perryman enjoyed a better season than previous seasons in 2020, the team has drafted Kenneth Murray to essentially replace him and does not need to pay for what Perryman offers to the table.

Perryman is not going to be super expensive, although he should net himself a decent payday. I predicted him to get a two-year contract worth $13.5 million as teams tend to overpay for inside linebackers, especially ones with the potential to be a pure bruiser like Perryman.

A team that instantly jumps off the page that would be interested in Perryman’s playstyle is the Washington Football Team. Washington has one of the best young defenses in the league which plays fast and hits hard.

Both of which Perryman also does.

The team could use depth at the linebacker position and they have a lot of cap space to spend this offseason. Washington has $54 million in cap space with 66 players already signed to the roster. If any team can slightly overpay for Perryman, it is Washington.

Washington should be doing other things this offseason and Perryman should not be the crowning jewel of the offseason. However, he fits so well on this team that I would be surprised if they were not interested.
