to the roster for the final week of the preseason.According to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio , the Lions are signing former Philadelphia Eagles and AAF quarterback Luis Perez.Perez spent a month with the Eagles earlier this offseason following the collapse of the AAF. Perez had been one of the more intriguing quarterbacks in the start-up league before it prematurely ended its introductory season. Perez threw for 1,460 yards with five touchdowns and six interceptions for the Birmingham Iron. He also ran for 75 yards on 24 carries.Perez will join fellow AAF alum Josh Johnson as one of five quarterbacks on the Lions’ roster. With Matthew Stafford unlikely to play in the final preseason game, Perez could be additional depth along with Johnson, Tom Savage and David Fales and get a quick look as a possible future practice squad consideration. The Eagles no longer have the best safety net in the league at quarterback. But the fact Nick Foles became that kind of player serves as an inspiration to the next generation.Via Zach Berman of the , Eagles fifth-rounder Clayton Thorson said Foles going from backup to Super Bowl MVP shows the value of the Eagles’ system.“It tells me a lot,” Thorson said of Foles’ success. “It says a lot about that coaching staff and how they helped develop the guys who aren’t the starters. It also says a lot about Carson Womens Nelson Agholor Jersey , too. I am sure it helped when Nick learned the offense: He was an older guy, as well. But it says a lot about the Eagles, and I am looking forward to stepping in there and getting some reps and learning from all those guys.”Thorson will compete with Nate Sudfeld for the backup job, but Sudfeld only has one year left on his contract. With a longer apprenticeship, the former four-year starter at Northwestern is prepared to learn as much as he can from both Wentz and Sudfeld.“Obviously, Carson has the keys to the car Zach Ertz Jersey , he knows it all, and I’m sure Nate does, too,” Thorson said. “So, I’m looking forward to learning from them, but also becoming good friends with them and supporting them and competing my butt off and so looking forward to getting to know them. I’ve heard such great things about that room , obviously to see Nick go away, I think it’s just a great opportunity for me.”And if the story plays out similarly, there will be opportunities for Thorson, somewhere.
