The Buccaneers worked out 14 players Tuesday, including free agent quarterbacks Nathan Peterman and Landry Jones, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL reports.

Current backup quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Griffin become free agents this spring.

The Bills cut Peterman on Nov. 12.

Peterman opened the season as the Bills’ starter but went only 5-of-18 for 24 yards and two interceptions in the loss to the Ravens. He threw 13 interceptions on 133 career regular-season and postseason pass attempts.

He has thrown three career touchdowns and three pick-sixes.

Peterman finished 1-3 as the team’s starter in two seasons after the Bills made him a fifth-round pick in 2017.

Jones most recently worked out for Washington after it lost Colt McCoy to a broken leg. He signed with the Jaguars earlier this season after Pittsburgh cut him out of training camp.

Jones started five games in place of Ben Roethlisberger in his five-year career with the Steelers, going 3-2 with a 63.9 completion percentage, a 7.8 yards per attempt average, eight touchdowns, seven interceptions and a passer rating of 86.2.

  1. I don’t understand what the problem is with Landry Jones! Something strange in the works here!

  2. Note to NFL Owners: Nathan Peterman sucks. Keeping him around only fuels the Kaepernick collusion conspiracies.

  3. Peterman is young and inexperienced… odds are he will get better. With Kaepernick he already has several seasons in and still sucks so it’s not going to get any better.

    he had all world talent around him while filling in for ben and looked very pedestrian. cant imagine that translates well to a team that needs a qb to elevate players around him. plus he got crushed by new england when he played. that never sits well in the dirty burgh.

    Well, then let him get experience in the CFL or the XFL.

  6. Nathan Peterman once had FIVE interceptions in one half of football. He keeps showing he isn’t NFL quality, yet he keeps getting opportunities. I wonder why.

  7. What does this say to Bucs fans? We know both Fitz and Griffin are free agents at the end of the season. So the Bucs figure they can’t keep either one of them because they’ll get better offers from other teams. So we’ll look at the bottom of the QB barrel this year and hope we can find a backup for next year. Does this mean the Bucs have decide to keep Jamis Winston around? Somebody needs to explain the thinking behind this.

  8. Of course the country yahoos with their own definition of proficiency at the NFL QB position will say that KAP is not a good QB but Peterman and Jones are; quit being so afraid of black men fellas, they don’t have you ole boys to think about. KAP may want to play, but he doesn’t have to; he is set for life, so you hillbillies should get one

  9. On the bright side, Nathan Peterman surely is staying in top physical shape with all these workouts he’s getting.

  10. The Bucs are a complete mess…ive been a fan since 1976 and this team from top to bottom is one of the worse. I dont see it ever getting better till the Glazer kids sell the franchise.

  11. What happened? billswillnevermove and all of his other ID’s kept telling us that Peterman is the future. He’s going to win the jills their first Lombardi. What happened? Oh, yeah, it’s all about the jills latest bust. Good luck with that.
