Joshua Perry is getting another opportunity to play in the NFL.

The Seattle Seahawks announced the signing of the former Ohio State linebacker, who last played for the Indianapolis Colts, on Monday.

Selected by the then-San Diego Chargers in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, Perry played in 15 games with one start and recorded 22 total tackles in his rookie season. After being waived by the Chargers at the beginning of last season, however, Perry appeared in only two games for the Colts last season, and was waived by the Colts in May.

Now, however, Perry will have the opportunity to keep his NFL career alive with the Seahawks, whose roster includes two of Perry's former Ohio State teammates: Nick Vannett and Jamarco Jones.

Perry played for the Buckeyes for 2012-15, starting at linebacker for each of his final three seasons while recording 298 career tackles and serving as a team captain in 2015.
