Ransom, a seventh-year veteran, was originally signed by the Jaguars on June 15 and was waived on September 5. He played in five games with the Cardinals in 2003 after spending his first five seasons in Kansas City. The 6-3, 306-pounder was originally drafted by the Chiefs in the sixth round of the 1998 draft. The Indianapolis, Ind. native has played in 61 games with 26 starts and has 126 career tackles (63 solo), four sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
Perryman was originally signed by the Jaguars on October 30, 2003 and spent four weeks on the practice squad before seeing action in the final four games last season. The 5-11, 195 pound safety played in four games in 2004 recording one special teams tackle.
