Former Ivy League quarterback EJ Perry worked out for Seahawks
The Seahawks worked out former Jaguars and Texans quarterback EJ Perry yesterday, according to a report by Jordan Schultz at the Score. Perry (6-foot-2, 211 pounds) began his college football career at Boston College before he transferred to Brown, where he won All-Ivy league honors twice.
Last season Perry spent his time on the practice squad for Jacksonville. He was waived back in March and claimed by Houston, but they let him go two weeks ago.
The scouting report on Perry mentions his quick release and ability to run, but also notes average-at-best arm strength. His best selling point is his athleticism. At the 2022 scouting combine, he posted a 4.65 second 40-yard dash, a 34.5″ vertical and a 4.18 second 20-yard shuttle.
If he does wind up signing with the Sehaawks, Perry will most likely be competing with undrafted rookie Holton Ahlers for the third QB spot on the roster behind Geno Smith and Drew Lock.
That QB3 spot means a little more this year than in the past. The NFL just passes a new rule that allows teams to carry three quarterbacks on their game day roster without them counting for a roster spot.
