The New Orleans Saints have secured their short-term future at quarterback by re-signing Jameis Winston in free agency. The long term is much more uncertain, though, as the team looks to find their next anchor under center like Drew Brees was for 15 years.

The NFL Draft presents the chance to find their next franchise QB, and New Orleans has met with an intriguing prospect ahead of this month's big event.

EJ Perry NFL Draft

Former Brown QB EJ Perry had a private workout with the Saints, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Footnall Network. Though only one Ivy League quarterback has been drafted since 1984, Perry's stock is rising after a successful showing at the NFL Combine.

The 6-foot-2 Massachusetts native spent the 2018 season with Boston College before transferring to Brown. He turned in a successful campaign this past year, throwing for 3,034 yards, 23 INTs and 14 INTs.

Perry also showcased dual-threat potential by racking up a combined 1,129 rushing yards and 15 TDs during his two seasons with the Bears.

There's a chance Perry's work on the pre-draft circuit, including a standout showing at the Senior Bowl, could make him worth taking a Day 3 pick on. Even if he goes undrafted, the Saints could bring him in as a free agent signing for training camp to get a better look.
