Another NFL team is actually giving Nathan Peterman a job. Wednesday afternoon, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport broke the news that the Oakland Raiders were signing the former Buffalo Bill to their practice squad.
Long live Jon Gruden.
The #Raiders have signed QB Nathan Peterman to the practice squad, source said, not the 53-man roster. Jon Gruden has said in the past he loves him and now he gets him (updating an earlier tweet).

It is not hyperbolic to say that Peterman is quite literally the worst quarterback to ever play the game. In eight NFL appearances — four starts — he has three touchdowns to 12 interceptions. In fact, he has as many pick-6s (3) as he does TDs to his own team. He’s completed just over 52 percent of his passes. Even Tim Tebow thinks he could use some help under center.
But after his disastrous efforts in Buffalo, the Raiders are giving him another shot.
What else can we say? We honestly don’t even have anymore jokes right now; they write themselves. Keep in mind, this is the same team that would trade All-Pro pass-rusher Khalil Mack before the season began. Shortly after that, Gruden complained about not having a pass rush. Then a handful of weeks later, they sent Amari Cooper to the Cowboys. He’s been tearing it up ever since.
So surely Peterman is the answer.
On the field, the Raiders are 3-11 and have been out of playoff contention for some time. At this point though, we cannot wait to see what next year brings.
