Nathan Peterman won’t be leaving the Raiders this offseason.

The Raiders announced on Thursday that they have signed Peterman to a one-year contract. He would have become an unrestricted free agent in March if he had not agreed to a new deal with the team.

Peterman initially signed to the Raiders practice squad in December 2018 and spent the 2019 season on injured reserve. He backed up Derek Carr in 2020 after re-signing as a restricted free agent. He appeared in one game in a mop-up role and completed 3-of-5 passes for 25 yards.

Peterman entered the league as a Bills fifth-round pick in 2017. He started four of the eight games he played in his first two seasons and threw 12 interceptions and three touchdowns while completing 52.6 percent of his passes.

  1. That’s it. That’s the missing piece of the puzzle!!!

    Oh wait, he’s been there for a while already.

    Nevermind.

    That was a complete screw job what happened to him in Buffalo. All the pre-season and practice snaps went to Tyrod Taylor as the starter, but all of a sudden you expect a ROOKIE qb to come in cold to perform well?

    That next week with the 5 INTs, he got ONE practice scrimmage with the 1’s. Seriously, either bring in a veteran QB that knew the system, or if you’re developing a 5th rd rookie, at least give him some meaningful practice snaps.

  3. That’s Gruden’s guy. He loves Peterman and has defended him more than once to the media.

  4. Poor kid was thrown to the wolves before he was ready in Buffalo. I don’t know if he’ll ever be a starter in this league but it is nice to see the kid get a second chance by a coach who sees something in him and is willing to take him on as a project and attempt to properly develop him. I hope he makes the best of it and gets another chance at some point.
    From the accounts I’ve read, he is a dedicated study and is putting the time and effort in. Good for him, I wish him luck.

  5. I present proof that backup QB is one of the best jobs on the planet. Peterman struggled mightily, spectacularly off the bat in his career. Now he just needs to follow the Chase Daniels path to equity growth without doing anything off the practice field and he can start breaking ground on a mansion some where cause he’ll probably clear 7 figures or more per/start for the rest of a career where he looks good enough to stay. But is demonstrably not good enough to play. Such is the weirdness of employment in the NFL. A RB or defensive player may tear himself apart on Sunday and get cut Monday before bruises stop swelling. Tough gig.

  6. I watched Peterman early on in Buffalo and I can see why he was giving chances because he always looked good in practice and exhibition games. But when it came to perform in games with meaning, his play took a complete 180 and he was passing to the other team instead of his own receivers.

    He’s thrown a total of 5 passes since 2018, for his career is 3 TDs vs 12 interceptions, and holds a career QB rating of 34. Yet, you’re still holding out some shred of hope he could somehow become a starter someday? LOL.
