The Jacksonville Jaguars signed rookie quarterback E.J. Perry as an undrafted free agent this spring and expected him to add depth behind returning starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence, but it seems his time in Jacksonville was short-lived as the team cut Perry on Sunday.
Before joining the Jaguars, Perry started two seasons at Brown University after transferring from Boston College in 2019. In 2021, his final season at Brown, Perry won the Bushnell Cup as the Ivy League’s top offensive player after finishing the season 295-for-444 through the air for 3,033 yards and 23 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. He also rushed for 402 yards and seven touchdowns.
After releasing Perry, Jacksonville signed another young quarterback to replace him, adding Kyle Sloter to the roster.
Sloter had a brief stint in the NFL last season with the Minnesota Vikings, but he made his biggest impression in the USFL. Playing nine games with the New Orleans Breakers, Sloter completed 168 of 291 passes for 1,798 yards and nine touchdowns.
Before his time in both the NFL and the USFL, Sloter attended Northern Colorado from 2015-16. In his final season in 2016, he completed 198 of 319 pass attempts, throwing a school-record 29 touchdowns.
