Perine and the Steelers agreed on a one-year contract Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Perine was waived by Kansas City this past Friday and it took less than a week for him to find a new home in Pittsburgh. The running back compiled 77 rushing yards on 22 carries while also recording three catches for 33 yards over five games with Kansas City in 2023. He'll be in line to operate as a depth option for the Steelers behind Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren if he secures an active roster spot in 2024.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Works out with Houston
RBFree Agent
September 16, 2022
Perine worked out for the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Perine was cut by the Jets in training camp, then landed with the Eagles' practice squad before getting cut once again. The 2020 fourth-round pick is hoping to finding a landing spot with a Houston team that may have grown disenchanted with rookie fourth-rounder Dameon Pierce after Pierce's struggles catching the football in his NFL debut. Perine preceded Pierce as the lead back for the University of Florida.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
2021
2020
Selected in the fourth round of the 2020 draft, Perine saw his time with the Jets come to a close last August after failing to claim a spot on the 53-man roster. The running back bounced around throughout the 2023 campaign, spending time in both Philadelphia and Miami before ending up on the Chiefs' practice squad. With Isiah Pacheco, Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire also in the team's backfield mix, Perine will likely need to have an impressive training camp and preseason in order to earn a Week 1 roster spot.
Perine hasn't done much since the Jets drafted him in the fourth round out of Florida in 2020. He was limited to just eight touches last season, failing to beat out the likes of Ty Johnson and Austin Walter for playing time behind Michael Carter and Tevin Coleman. New York bolstered its running back room by adding Breece Hall in the 2022 NFL Draft, which could spell the end of Perine's Jets tenure barring a clear improvement ahead of his third NFL season.
A fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, Perine earned a role off the bench early on in his rookie season, averaging 7.2 touches for 27.9 yards over a nine-game stretch Weeks 2-11. He then missed four games with a knee injury, eventually returning for Week 16 but then landing on the COVID-19 list a week later. Perine will compete for snaps in touches in a wide-open Jets backfield this summer, going up against Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and 2021 fourth-round pick Michael Carter. The rookie is largely touted for his pass-catching skills, and the new coaching staff led by HC Robert Saleh and OC Mike LaFleur (both coming from San Francisco) might favor Coleman for his familiarity with the scheme. On the other hand, Perine might have the most diverse skill set of the bunch, as he held his own on both early downs and third downs in a gruesome Adam Gase offense last year. Still, a big workload is a longshot, with a bit role in a three/four-man committee the far more likely outcome.
Taken in the fourth round of this year's draft, Perine joins a backfield that has become fairly crowded, as the Jets also picked up the ageless Frank Gore in free agency. While Perine never had to handle a big workload in college, he showed a strong work ethic and turned himself into a useful receiver during his final year at Florida. He is not a premium athletic specimen, but Perine showed good patience and vision in waiting for holes to develop, and the power and balance to get through them to the second level. In some ways, he is a bargain-bin version of Le'Veon Bell, but as the real deal demonstrated last season, coach Adam Gase's offensive scheme might not be a great fit for that particular skill set. With two veterans ahead of him on the depth chart, Perine could wind up spending much of his rookie season trying to make a positive impression on special teams while waiting for his path to a larger role to open.
