The United Football League Communications Department announced on Friday that the Michigan Panthers have signed 3 players. The Panthers have signed receiver Trey Quinn, tight end Nick Guggemos as well as defensive back Jamal Perry.

WR Trey Quinn  – Southern Methodist (28 y/o, 6’0, 200 lbs)

Trey Quinn played his first 2 seasons of NCAA at LSU where he played in 25 games with 9 starts contributing 22 receptions for 276 yards from 2014 to 2015. He transferred to SMU where he sat out the 2016 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Quinn played in 12 games with 11 starts in 2017 with SMU racking up 114 receptions for 1,236 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was named First-Team All-American in 2017. Quinn finished the season 4th all-time for receiving yards in a season for SMU.

Quinn was the very last pick of the 2018 NFL Draft which is nick-named Mr. Irrelevant as he was selected by the Washington Redskins. In the first game of the season, he injured his ankle resulting in him missing much of the season. He was not reactivated from IR until November 14 and reinjured it in early December. Quinn was limited to 3 games in his rookie season due to injuries.

Quinn had his 2nd NFL season limited to 13 games in his second season as he suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit on a punt return in week 13 causing him to miss the remainder of the season. From 2018 to 2019 he played in 15 games with Washington with 8 starts catching 35 passes for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Quinn was waived in September of 2020 by Washington and signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars where he spent the year on the practice squad and appeared in 1 game. In 2021 he was signed by the Las Vegas Raiders and released in late August. In 2022 he signed with the Denver Broncos and was waived in early August.

Trey Quinn played in 10 regular season games for the Michigan Panthers in 2023 with 8 starts. He caught 37 passes for 439 yards and 4 touchdowns over the regular season. He added 5 catches for 104 yards in the Panthers’ playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Maulers.

Quinn was signed by the Detroit Lions ahead of the 2023 NFL season where he spent time on the practice squad before being released in October.

TE Nick Guggemos – St. Thomas (MN) (28 y/o, 6’4, 248 lbs)

Nick Guggamos played receiver for St. Thomas at the Division III level where he was limited due to injuries. He finished his collegiate career with one reception for 8 yards and one rush for -4 yards. He was also a sprinter and jumper in track and field.

Guggemos worked as an engineer following his last year of college in 2018 and kept training hoping for an opportunity in 2020 but Covid limited opportunities that year. He attended a pro day at the University of Minnesota in 2021. He caught the attention of NFL scouts by running a 4.49 40-yard dash, 10’11 broad jump, 38.5 vertical, 6.93 3-cone drill, and doing 25 bench press reps.

He was invited to a workout with the Seattle Seahawks and signed as an undrafted free agent where he spent a month before being released. He subsequently spent time with 3 other NFL teams including the Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, and Green Bay Packers before he was waived by the Buffalo Bills in July of 2023.

Nick Guggemos’ father, Neal Guggemos, was a 4-year NFL defensive back and kick returner.

DB Jamal Perry – Iowa State (25 y/o, 5’10, 180 lbs)

Jamal Perry played his first 2 seasons of collegiate ball at Trinity Valley CC where he played in 24 games contributing 83 solo tackles, 41 assisted tackles, and 2 interceptions. He was All-Southwest Junior College Football Conference in 2014.

Perry signed with the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2019 season. He played in 31 games for the Dolphins from 2019 to 2021 with 7 starts recording 57 solo tackles, 29 assisted tackles, 7 passes defended, and an interception.
