LOS ANGELES –
Texas A&M University-Commerce football great Luis Perez has been signed by defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, following a great year one in the United States Football League (USFL), in which he guided the New Jersey Generals to the semifinal round of the USFL Playoffs.
Perez totaled 1,200 passing yards in six games started and threw for nine touchdowns in nine total games for the Generals. He finished the season fourth among USFL quarterbacks in passing yards. This is his second stint with the Rams, after signing on as an undrafted free agent in 2018 and spending two weeks on the practice squad.
Since leading the Lions to the 2017 Division II National Championship and winning the Harlon Hill Trophy, Perez has had stops with the Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, the Alliance of American Football (AAF), the XFL, and most recently, the USFL.
The Rams report for training camp on Saturday. Perez is now the third former Lion that is on an NFL roster during training camp this fall. Earlier this year, Kader Kohou and Amon Simon signed on as undrafted free agents with the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys, respectively.
