Yesterday the Cincinnati Bengals released former Michigan running back Chris Perry.
This isn’t too surprising. Perry was drafted to be a big-play alternative to bruiser Rudi Johnson. Problems ensued, including Perry’s lack of big-play ability (3.4 yards per carry in the NFL) and his inability to be healthy.
As a former 1st round draft pick, I’m guessing Perry will get another shot with an NFL team. But I’m not expecting big things from him, just like I didn’t expect much from him coming out of college. Perry had a very good senior season, but I never thought he ran very hard as a freshman, sophomore, or junior. Much like current Michigan running back Carlos Brown, Perry never seemed to be able to break many tackles.
