The Cleveland Browns have voided their verbal agreement with
wide receiver Breshad Perriman on a one-year contract Ryan Smith
 , a person familiar with the decision told The Associated
Press on Tuesday night.Perriman, who revived his career in Cleveland last
season, had agreed earlier in the day to sign a $4 million contract for next
season. However, when the Browns stunned the NFL by agreeing to acquire
superstar Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants, Perriman asked out.Both
sides then mutually agreed to cancel the deal, said the person who spoke on
condition of anonymity because nothing can become official until 4 p.m.
Wednesday.Perriman quickly found a new home, agreeing to a 1-year contract with
Tampa Bay, said another person with knowledge of the deal.A former first-round
pick of Baltimore, Perriman signed with Cleveland in October. He finished with
16 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games.<em>— Reporting

Buccaneers have re-signed quarterback Ryan Griffin to a two-year contract.The
seventh-year pro, who’s never taken a snap in a regular-season game, spent the
past four seasons as a backup behind Jameis Winston. For most of the past two
seasons, he was No. 3 on the depth chart behind Winston and Ryan
Fitzpatrick.Griffin entered the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of
Tulane. He spent two seasons with the New Orleans Saints before joining the
Bucs.<em>— Reporting by Fred Goodall</em> The Buccaneers pulled
through on Sunday afternoon, escaping a ridiculous game with a 26-23 overtime
win over the Cleveland Browns. The victory made absolutely no sense, with the
home team blowing a 23-9 fourth-quarter lead and missing a game-winning field
goal at the end of regulation before gaining just 36 yards on three drives in
overtime. But after recovering a fumble near midfield, the Bucs got another
chance. That meant another chance for a kicker who had already missed an extra
point and a 40-yard field goal in the game. Head coach Dirk Koetter decided to
send him out for a 59-yard field goal attempt and somehow Chris Conte
 , the kick was good and the Bucs walked away
victorious.Tampa Bay is now 3-3 heading into next week’s game in Cincinnati.
Before we turn the page, let’s dive in and look at our Buccaneers of the Week.5.
Mike Evans (One point)Mike Evans quietly had another 100-yard receiving game,
catching seven of his 11 targets for 107 yards. That translates to 15.3 yards
per catch, which is so valuable. It was even more valuable on Sunday as the Bucs
struggled with turning the ball over. The team’s No. 1 receiver was a constant
force, as usual, for quarterback Jameis Winston. On third downs, Evans was
consistently finding separation. Tampa Bay’s ability to extend drives in
Sunday’s game often came down to No. 13 breaking through coverage. He also did a
pretty nice job of racking up yards after some of his catches.The Buccaneer
offense struggled to get the run game going, which put some pressure on the
passing attack. Evans was up to the challenge, perhaps taking advantage of the
absence of E.J. Gaines in Cleveland’s secondary. It was the third 100-yard game
of the season for him and his fifth game of six or more catches. He is
performing at a high level in his fifth season. The Bucs need him to continue
this production if they want the offense to play at a high level.4. Kwon
Alexander (Two points)Kwon Alexander played his best football of the season in
the first two quarters of Sunday’s game, which makes it even more heartbreaking
that he went down late in the first half with a torn ACL. Missing him for the
rest of the season will absolutely hurt the Tampa Bay defense. Alexander is not
only one of the most productive members of that defense, but also one of its
captains. In the same week that he was voted a defensive captain, he suffered a
season-ending injury. That’s just rough.Before the injury, Alexander played a
major hand in setting the tone for the Buccaneer defense. In the team’s first
game since letting go of defensive coordinator Mike Smith, the defense came out
hot. The Browns got a couple of first downs on their opening drive before
stalling. Kwon and the defense held Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland offense in
check for the first half, allowing no points. Even more importantly Bryan Anger
 , the unit was getting off the field on third down.
Alexander, prior to his injury, picked up seven tackles (five solo) and a pass
defended. He was flying all over the field like vintage Kwon before leaving the
game. Despite missing the second half, he still deserves a spot on this list for
setting the tone early.3. Lavonte David (Three points)Is it a coincidence that
Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David land back-to-back on this list in the first
week of linebackers coach Mark Duffner serving as defensive coordinator? Maybe.
Maybe not. Regardless, David had a strong outing of his own on Sunday. He was
the team’s leading tackler with eight (seven solo) and tied for a team-high two
tackles for loss. Like Alexander, he set the tone early. The defense was put in
a tough spot at the end of the first half after a Cameron Brate fumble. But the
unit stepped up and forced a 4th down try for the Browns. After Baker Mayfield
appeared to have scrambled for a first down, David came through with a heads-up
play, punching the ball out. It rolled backward and out of bounds. Since it fell
behind the first-down marker, the Bucs took possession. The veteran linebacker
is notorious for making big plays and he got himself another one this week. With
Mike Smith gone, maybe we’ll see the prime No. 54 week in and week out.2.
Chandler Catanzaro (Four points)Sure, this is controversial. Sure, Chandler
Catanzaro put the Bucs in a position to lose on multiple occasions in Sunday’s
game. His missed extra point early in the game came back to bite when Tampa Bay
was tied 23-23 late. Missing a 40-yard field goal at the end of regulation took
the game to overtime, where the Bucs surely could have lost. But... When it
comes down to it, Tampa Bay won on a 59-yard field goal in overtime. Dirk
Koetter, for whatever reason Demar Dotson
 , trusted his kicker with a 59-yard attempt in a tie game.
His kicker delivered. Does it erase his severe problems from earlier in the game
and earlier in the season? No chance. But if that 59-yarder doesn’t connect, the
Bucs leave with a loss or a tie.The Bucs should still be evaluating their
options at the kicking position, but they sit at 3-3 because Catanzaro shook off
his issues and came through with a clutch kick. That’s worth something, right?
At the very least, it’s worth four points in this week’s standings.1. Carl
Nassib (Five points)If you had told me before the season that I would be naming
Carl Nassib as the team’s top player of any week, I would’ve been wildly
confused. But here we are. Nassib haunted his former team on Sunday, seemingly
playing with a chip on his shoulder knowing that those responsible for cutting
him were watching. He sacked Baker Mayfield twice and—get this!— dropped into
coverage on one play and came up with a pass defended. He stepped up for a Tampa
Bay defensive line that was missing Gerald McCoy and Vinny Curry. And he came
through when his new team needed him most.After Cleveland took possession at
Tampa Bay’s 45-yard line in overtime, Mayfield and the offense likely needed
just one first down to get into field goal range and potentially win the game.
But on third down, Nassib dropped the rookie quarterback for a loss of seven.
Instead of lining up for what would have been a 55-yard field goal attempt to
win the game, the Browns had to punt. The sack didn’t win the game, but it
definitely extended it. And from there, the Bucs found a way to take advantage.
With a strong revenge game, Carl Nassib makes his first appearance on this
list.Updated Buccaneers of the Week Standings through week seven:(TIE) Ryan
