The Bears are rolling with Trevor Siemian as their backup to Justin Fields.

Chicago is releasing quarterback Nathan Peterman, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. But the Bears do intend to bring Peterman back for their practice squad as their third quarterback.

Peterman signed with the Bears in May after being with the Raiders since 2018. He appeared in two games for Las Vegas between 2020 and 2021. He was 14-of-24 in the 2022 preseason for 178 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

Peterman was a Bills fifth-round pick in 2017. He was 1-3 in his four starts, throwing three touchdowns to 12 interceptions.

Siemian signed a two-year deal with Chicago in March.

  1. I didn’t even know he was on the Bears. I was expecting him to be starting for the Raiders by week 4 after their 0-3 start from Derek Carr’s mistakes.

  2. I was surprised this kid was still in the league, and aghast he was on the Bears roster. First time I saw him he threw interceptions on four consecutive passes. His play hasn’t improved. This, for everyone’s sake, should be be the end of the line. He needs to move onto something else; the Bears should find someone better.
