As they look to defend last season’s Super Bowl title, it looks like the Los Angeles Rams are adding a little more depth to the quarterback position, signing veteran quarterback Luis Perez.
A former USFL quarterback, Perez joins a Rams quarterbacks room led by Matthew Stafford that also features reserve quarterbacks John Wolford and Bryce Perkins. The Texas A&M-Commerce alum will join the team for training camp next week and will likely get a chance to make an impression in the team’s preseason contests.
Perez played from 2019 to 2022 during his career with the Birmingham Iron in the AAF, the New York Guardians in the XFL, and most recently the New Jersey Generals in the USFL. In his professional career, Perez has thrown for 3,079 yards, completing 297 of 492 passes with 17 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. On the ground, he has run for 84 yards in 40 attempts with 1 rushing touchdown.
In his most recent season in the USFL, Perez was particularly impressive, completing 71.7 percent of his passes for 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns with no interceptions and no sacks.
While Perez won’t be competing for the Rams’ starting quarterback spot, his presence on the roster will add depth and veteran experience to a unit as it prepares for the 2022 NFL season.
