Nathan Peterman, 2nd Year

(6-foot-2, 225 pounds)

Contract: 4 year-$2.6 Million

Career Notes:

  • Fifth-round pick (No. 171 overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh.
  • Peterman threw five interceptions during his first NFL start. It tied an NFL record and he was pulled at halftime.
  • Started two games for the Buffalo Bills in 2017.
  • Career Stats- 48.1 Comp %, 266 Yards, 2 TD, 6 INT.


Nathan Peterman is out for redemption. He learned from his mistakes during his rookie season and has shown the hunger for another opportunity.

There is nowhere to go but up. He has worked tirelessly this offseason to shore up his decision making and footwork to get the ball out efficiently and effectively.

Before he had that dreaded day in Los Angeles, he was considered a prospect with potential to be a starting quarterback. I believe he has the poise, mechanics and football smarts to be a low-end starter.

The Bills organization decided to give him a chance at the starting position this year and he hasn’t disappointed them. The talk out of minicamp has been about the growth of Peterman. He is making better decisions while throwing a more accurate ball.

He is a man with nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain. I hope it works out or else his name will be remembered for that five-pick performance.
