Raiders to sign former Bills QB Nathan Peterman, report says

Bills QB Nathan Peterman on his struggles against Texans: ‘This is something I'm going to learn from’

Nathan Peterman is Oakland bound.

The Raiders have signed the former Bills quarterback to an undosclosed deal, ESPN first reported, citing an unidentified source.

NFL Media notes Peterman was signed to the practice squad instead of the 53-man roster.

The news comes one day after it was reported that Raiders coach Jon Gruden “is very high on” the 24-year-old quarterback and scheduled a workout with Peterman, who also visited the Broncos earlier this month. Oakland already has Derek Carr and AJ McCarron on the roster. 

Peterman, 24, began this season as Buffalo’s starter but was benched in favor of rookie Josh Allen after throwing two interceptions and tallying just 24 yards in Week 1. He also started and threw three picks in the Bills’ 41-9 Week 9 loss to the Bears before being released in mid-November. 

In total, Peterman finished his stint in Buffalo with three touchdowns and 12 interceptions in eight games as he completed 52.3 percent of his passes.

The Raiders (3-11) are slated to host the Broncos (6-8) in an AFC West showdown at 8:15 p.m. ET Monday.
