Former Bills quarterback who once bested Josh Allen for the starting position has secured another role in the NFL, seven years after their initial competition. Nathan Peterman, now 29, has signed a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints, as announced on March 19. Peterman, who spent the last two seasons with the Chicago Bears, including five game appearances with one start, will now potentially reunite with quarterback Derek Carr, whom he previously backed up during their time together with the Las Vegas Raiders. In New Orleans, he will vie for a backup position, potentially as the No. 2 behind Carr, following Jameis Winston’s departure to the Cleveland Browns.

Peterman expressed enthusiasm for this new opportunity, highlighting his readiness to support Carr and his positive relationship with him. Additionally, the presence of Andrew Janocko, the quarterbacks coach in New Orleans, whom Peterman worked with in Chicago, adds familiarity to his new environment. Despite facing challenges, notably his tumultuous stint in Buffalo, where he gained attention for both a standout blizzard game touchdown pass and a disastrous debut throwing five interceptions in a half, Peterman persevered. After his time in Buffalo, he continued to navigate the NFL landscape, including a stint with the Las Vegas Raiders from 2020-2021.
