Nathan Peterman gets a shot on Oakland Raiders’ practice squad

A.J. McCarron has a friend to play with.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Former Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Nathan Peterman has been signed by the Oakland Raiders to their practice squad. He was released on November 12th by Buffalo and joins former Bills quarterback A.J. McCarron in Oakland.

The Raiders made the move to add Peterman Wednesday at least partially because of McCarron, who welcomed a son with his wife, Katherine Webb, on Tuesday afternoon. With McCarron unable to practice today, Peterman was needed to run the scout team as Oakland prepares for their Week 16 tilt.

Peterman started four games for the Bills in two seasons after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was named the starting quarterback following the 2018 preseason, but lasted just one half of football before being benched in favor of rookie Josh Allen.

Peterman finished his career in Buffalo with three touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 130 passes, for an interception rate of 9.2%. He now heads to a team where Bills quarterbacks go to die: In addition to McCarron, Matt Flynn, Trent Edwards, J.P. Losman, and EJ Manuel all ended up there after their stints in Buffalo.
