LA Wildcats Trade Quarterback Luis Perez To New York Guardians

Luis Perez

Transactions continue to take place as the XFL’s inaugural season approaches in just a few weeks. The Los Angeles Wildcats have traded away quarterback Luis Perez to the New York Guardians.

Perez’s move was made official on Wildcats head coach and general manager Winston Moss had this to say on the transaction:

“We respect Luis. He is a first-class person and a first-class player. We felt as though the development of Josh Johnson and Jalan McClendon would give us the best chance to have success this season.”

The 25-year-old Perez played his college ball for Southwestern College and Texas A&M-Commerce. Although he went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft, Perez was signed by the Los Angeles Rams in May of that year. However, after a pre-season performance against the New Orleans Saints that saw Perez throw for 43 yards and an interception, he was waived.

Perez went on to play for the Alliance of American Football (AAF) with the San Antonio Commanders and Birmingham Iron. After the AAF shut down all football operations, Perez had brief stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions. After signing with the Wildcats following the XFL Draft, Perez will now be taking snaps for the New York Guardians.
