Ex-Bills QB Nathan Peterman clears waivers, officially becomes free agent
The Buffalo Bills made the decision earlier this week to part ways with second-year quarterback Nathan Peterman after a discouraging start to the year.
This has put him on waivers to which he was cleared on Thursday morning thus officially making him a free agent with the ability to sign with any team, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
To no one’s surprise, Nathan Peterman cleared waivers. He becomes a free agent, and it would come as a surprise if anyone signs him before the end of the season based on his results thus far.
It has been nothing short of a rough start to Peterman’s NFL career over the last 1 1/2 seasons in the league as he has struggled to perform at a capable level on the field. He has become a magnet for turnovers in his brief time on the field as he has 12 career interceptions in eight regular season games played along with fumbling twice.
This led to him putting together a disappointing outing in his last game played with the Bills in the 41-9 blowout loss to the Chicago Bears at home as threw three interceptions to no touchdown passes with 189 yards on 31 of 49 completed passes. This had seen him throw multiple interceptions in three of the four games played this season as he had seven interceptions to one touchdown with 296 total passing yards over that stretch.
Although Peterman has shown that he isn’t ready to take over as a starter for a franchise, he could find work elsewhere in the league for a team looking to add depth at the position or at worse could be added to a practice squad. It is a bit of a setback, but now he has the opportunity to choose the next stop of his NFL career this season.
