Professional career[edit]

First stint with Browns[edit]

Perry was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in spring 2006. After being signed to the practice squad in September, he found himself starting in October after the injuries to Browns starters Leigh Bodden and Daven Holly. His accomplishments are not numerous for the Browns. However, in Week 10, he recovered a Michael Vick fumble to seal the Browns' third victory of the season—redemption after being burned on a 55-yard pass from Vick to receiver Roddy White two plays previous.

Despite his strong performance as a rookie, Perry was cut by the Browns on September 8, 2007 - the day before the regular season opener. Because he appeared in more than nine games during his first season, he had no practice squad eligibility remaining.

Miami Dolphins[edit]

On November 7, the Miami Dolphins signed Perry, while placing linebacker Abraham Wright in Injured Reserve. He was one of eight players released by the Dolphins on April 24, 2008.

Second stint with Browns[edit]

On May 14, 2008, the Browns re-signed Perry. He was released Aug. 30, 2008 during the final roster cuts.
