As the draft wrapped up this weekend, teams were working over the phone to reach deals with undrafted free agents to fill out their offseason rosters.
Reports of those deals came fast and furious, but not all of those deals advanced to signed contracts. One example of a deal going south this year involves former Brown quarterback EJ Perry.
This weekend it was said that Perry agreed to a deal with the Eagles, but ended up signing former Nevada quarterback Carson Strong, and Perry’s agent, Sean Stellato, said his client is now signing with the Jaguars.
Perry began his college days at Boston College but transferred to the Ivy League school in 2019. He was 295-for-444 passing for 3,033 yards, 24 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season.
Trevor Lawrence is the starting quarterback at Jacksonville with CJ Beathard and Jake Luton behind him on the depth chart.
