Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman looked absolutely terrible in his first start as a rookie last year, throwing five interceptions before getting benched at halftime. But that doesn’t mean the Bills are giving up on him.
The Bills’ coaching staff has made clear that it likes Peterman, and he’s slated to split first-team reps with McCarron in training camp. Allen will start training camp as the third-stringer and have to earn any first-team snaps he takes.
Multiple reporters on the scene at minicamp in Buffalo thought Peterman looked like the best quarterback on the team. If he gets on the field, the Bills can at least feel confident he will play better than he did last year. It would be just about impossible to play worse.
