The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Nathan Peterman on Monday night. It’s a surprising move, because the coaching staff had confidence in the former draft pick.
Peterman’s move is a sign that Josh Allen is ready to return from his injury. Allen has been the team’s starter when he’s been healthy.
He had just seven interceptions in 81 passes this season.
Head coach Sean McDermott was considering Peterman to start against the New York Jets. That was before the coaching staff made the decision to start Matt Barkley, who surprisingly blew out the Jets on Sunday.
In Week 9, he went 31 of 49 for 188 yards against the Chicago Bears in a 41-9 loss. He also had three interceptions.
Peterman has appeared in four games this season, including two starts. He went 0-2 in those games.
He went 44 of 81 for 296 yards. He had just one touchdown and seven interceptions.
Without Peterman, Allen is the starter on the depth chart. Derek Anderson is the backup, while Barkley, who guided the team to the win just one day ago, is the third-string.
The 24-year-old Jacksonville, Florida native was the Bills fifth-round draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He played collegiate football with the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Tennessee Volunteers.
In two seasons with the Bulls, he has appeared in eight games with four starts. He went 1-3 as a starter. He went 68 of 130 for 548 yards. He also had three touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
