Today, Breshad Perriman wrote, "Just a matter of time, me and my Ol boy will be leaving the hospital together. #faithandprayer."

After a standout career at the University of Miami, Brett Perriman was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 1988. He played 10 NFL seasons for four teams. He had 525 career catches for 6,589 yards and 30 touchdowns.

Breshad Perriman missed his entire rookie season because of a knee injury. He has been participating in the team's workout program. However, it's already been a difficult offseason for him as his closest friend on the team, Tray Walker, died in a motorcycle accident in March.
