There is a lot of talk right now about how Nathan Peterman could end up being the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills in 2018.

A simple Google search about anything related to the Buffalo Bills right now will bring up some results about Nathan Peterman.

And this time it is not anything negative.

Peterman had himself a nice minicamp and is apparently in the running to be the team’s starting quarterback. And that is no hot take this time around.

It is a true open competition in 2018, although I am still skeptical about Peterman’s real chances to win the job. It would only happen if AJ McCarron looks awful and the team refuses to play Josh Allen no matter how great he looks.

But if Peterman wins the job outright then good for him. It should not be seen as a bad thing, as long as he doesn’t win the job by default and have more bad outings like the impossibly bad one he had last season.

Here’s a look at some of the other news surrounding the Buffalo Bills in a Monday edition of The Morning Charge.

This article provides a nice quote from Brandon Beane about how Zay Jones won’t automatically slot in as a starter upon his return. That is good news for players like Foster and others in camp looking to sneak into the starting lineup this year.
