Acquired:

Highlights:

2023: Kent spent another full season with the Lions forefront on the offensive line. Kent once again was helping the offence scoring touchdowns and piling up yardage for quarterback, Vernon Adams Jr. and the receiving core. The right tackle also added two more playoff games under his belt to his CFL career.

2022: KP took even bigger strides in his second season with the Lions, starting 18 regular season games at right tackle and appearing in his first two playoff contests in the CFL. A solid force in both the passing and run-blocking game, Perkins was instrumental in James Butler eclipsing 1,000 yards on the ground and Nathan Rourke breaking the pro football record for completion percentage.

 

2021: Kent made his Lions debut in week two at Calgary and went on to start 13 games at right tackle. A consistent and reliable force in the run-and-pass protection game, Kent earned a Lions team nomination for CFL Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman.

 

2020: Kent was a member of the XFL’s St. Louis BattleHawks before the league shut down in April.

 

2017- 2018: Signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as a non-drafted free agent in April of 2017 and spent most of the next two seasons on the practice squad. Kent was promoted to the active roster in December of 2017 and then again in December of 2018.

 

College:
2013-2016: Kent started 34 games, mostly at right guard, with the University of Texas Longhorns and helped them reach the Alamo Bowl in 2013 and the Texas Bowl in 2014.
