Nathan Peterman, who won Buffalo Bills starting job seven years ago, has been signed to New Orleans Saints for a one-year contract.

Peterman will reunite with Derek Carr, who he backed up on the Las Vegas Raiders, to compete for a backup job.

Nathan Peterman, a journeyman quarterback, expressed excitement for a new opportunity in New Orleans after being released twice in Chicago and contacting his former teammate, Carr.

Peterman expressed excitement about returning to his role with quarterback Andrew Janocko, who previously worked with him in Chicago.

Peterman and Jake Haener are expected to compete for backup quarterback positions after veteran Jameis Winson and second-year quarterback Jake Haener left to join the Cleveland Browns.

Peterman’s tenure in Buffalo was polarizing, starting only halftime in 2017 against the Chargers, throwing five interceptions before being pulled for Tyrod Taylor.

Peterman’s touchdown against the Colts in a driving blizzard helped the Bills win the game and end a 17-year playoff drought, ending the team’s playoff appearance drought.

Peterman returned to Buffalo, starting but was pulled after a 40-0 loss to the Ravens, and was later released.

Peterman, despite a challenging start, managed to secure a spot in the NFL with the Las Vegas Raiders from 2020-2021, appearing in two games.
