QB - CHI
Week 4 Outlook
The Bears have re-signed QB Nathan Peterman.
Peterman was released by the team yesterday, but has now re-signed with the team. The move is odd since he was not moved to the practice squad. The Bears now have Peterman and rookie Tyson Bagnet as the quarterbacks behind starter Justin Fields.
According to Field Yates of ESPN, QB Nathan Peterman is being released again by the Chicago Bears.
During roster cutdowns, Peterman was temporarily cut by the Bears before re-signing to the 53-man roster two days later. Now, the Bears are dropping Peterman again, leaving QBs Justin Fields and undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent as the lone QBs on the roster. Peterman could be moved to the practice squad with the new QB3 rules.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, veteran QB Nathan Peterman has been released by the Chicago Bears with the goal of signing him to the practice squad.
Peterman was a backup QB for the Bears last season, starting one game in Justin Fields' absence. The former fifth-rounder by the Bills is entering his seventh year in the NFL and will likely be the Bears' QB3 in 2023. He has five career starts and a career TD-INT ratio of four to 13.
Nathan Peterman completed four of his six pass attempts for 58 yards in a win over the Titans Saturday.
Peterman, Tyson Bagent, and PJ Walker all saw limited pass attempts after the team removed Justin Fields early in the game. Peterman is the likely No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart for the Bears in 2023, but will have no fantasy value outside of Fields missing any time.
