Seahawks Sign Safety Lorenzo Jerome; Linebacker Joshua Perry Announces Retirement
The Seahawks added more depth at safety Monday, signing second-year defensive back Lorenzo Jerome, who takes the roster spot that became available when linebacker Joshua Perry was placed on the reserve/retired list. Perry announced on Twitter his decision to retire, citing concussion concerns.
Jerome, 23, appeared in four games for San Francisco last season, recording three tackles. He initially signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of St. Francis University.
