Lions waive ex-Giants RB Paul Perkins

Paul Perkins’ strange 2019 continued on Saturday with news that he had been waived by the Detroit Lions — something that has happened several times since his arrival in the Motor City.

The Lions claimed Perkins off of waivers from the Giants in early September and he’s bounced around from their practice squad to their active roster ever since.

Perkins, who was a fifth-round draft pick of the Giants out of UCLA back in 2016, fell out of favor with the team’s coaching staff after missing the 2018 season with a torn pec.

In 26 career games (5 starts) with the Giants, Perkins gained 546 yards on 153 carries (3.6 ypc), while hauling in 23 receptions for an additional 208 yards. His best season came in 2016 when he gained over 618 yards from scrimmage.

In four games with the Lions this season, Perkins gained 29 yards on 12 carries and added nine yards on a single reception out of the backfield.
