One of the worst quarterbacks we've ever seen take to the National Football League field, the Buffalo Bills released the second-year player on Monday. He completed 69 of 133 passes (51.8 percent) for 562 yards, three touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He won the starting job out of preseason, but failed to carry his performance over to the regular season. This season, he has gone 44-for-81 with 296 yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions in four games. He also threw an interception on one of his three pass attempts in last season's AFC wild-card playoff loss. All five of those interceptions came in the first half of a debacle against the Los Angeles Chargers after McDermott benched Tyrod Taylor in favor of Peterman.
Peterman could never escape his reputation for committing turnovers since the Bills selected him in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Pittsburgh.
Peterman spent last season as Tyrod Taylor's backup before being named the starter for a November 19 game at the Los Angeles Chargers. Fans started a GoFundMe page to encourage Peterman to retire after the game. He led the Bills to a 41-10 victory over the New York Jets in his first National Football League action in almost two years.
The Bills signed journeyman quarterback Matt Barkley the following week.
Now that Peterman is no longer a member of the Bills, fans were breathing a sigh of relief.
