Perry, a second-round draft pick out of Miami (FL.), will be utilized as an inside linebacker and on special teams early on with the Chargers, according to defensive coordinator John Pagano.
"He's mean," Pagano said. "He's tough. He tackles. He's somebody that's going to hit you. He's not just going to try and tackle you. He's trying to run through you, and that's something that every defense is looking for. He's got great instincts, and that makes up for the so-called lack of speed. He plays faster than he's timed."
Perryman totaled 218 tackles with 3 1/2 sacks in his final two seasons in college.
Weddle, who is in the final year of his contract, is seeking a new one. General manager Tom Telesco has promised one will be discussed upon the completion of the draft, but Weddle will wait until then. He did, however, claim he will be working out on the side.
"I'm not coming in anytime soon," Weddle told radio station The Mighty 1090. "They know where we're at and they obviously know their stance, so we'll see what happens from there."
Weddle contributed to 114 tackles last season and has averaged 103 over his last seven years. But his interception total has dropped every season since peaking at seven in 2011.
Milller has appeared in one game since entering the league in 2012 without making a catch.
"I not once, nor did Jimmy [Sexton, his agent], ever say anything about [wanting to be] traded," he said. "I don't know what the story is. I'm here. And glad that I am... I'm willing to listen to an extension. I am willing to play it out. What's so wrong about that approach?"
Rivers can become a free agent after the 2015 season and he said he's only concerned with the upcoming season.
"It's not the day before free agency starts next year. It's business as usual for me around here," Rivers said. "Not trying to be difficult. Just feel that it's a dead story."
"A lot of moving parts and lots to think about," he told U-T San Diego. "Location, family, team ... All I can say at this point regarding an extension is I'm willing to listen to anything. I"m also willing to play it out. I'm just fired up to be the Chargers QB in 2015."
The pick of running back Melvin Gordon in the first round ended speculation that Rivers would be used as a bargaining chip in a trade. The quarterback added that he's eager to see him in action up close, but that he knows quite a bit about Gordon already.
"I watched Melvin on many Saturday night highlights," Rivers said. "...It's exciting. We have a great group of backs. We are at our best when 50-50 run/pass. This group gives us a great chance to be that."
