ESPN calls Nathan Peterman a ‘serious contender’ to win Bills starting QB gig: Cover 1 Reacts (PREMIUM)


The Buffalo Bills wrapped up minicamp last week, meaning that the team has just over a month to relax with friends and family before they head to St. John Fisher College in Rochester for training camp on July 27.  The Bills’ quarterback competition was the talk of both OTAs and minicamp. Buffalo traded up to select Josh Allen at No. 7 overall after signing free agent A.J. McCarron in free agency. Through OTAs it was McCarron who split first-team reps with Nathan Peterman, who’s entering his second year in the league after being taken No. 171 overall last year.

The former Pitt signal-caller struggled mightily as a rookie, throwing five interceptions in his first game and finishing the season, completing 49-percent of his passes for 252 yards, throwing two touchdown passes and five interceptions. However, just as he did in his first offseason with Buffalo, Peterman has looked impressive in seven-on-seven drills and even some high-pressure situations as well.

ESPN’s Mike Rodak believes that 3 weeks of Offseason Training Activities and four days of minicamp was all he needs to discern that Nathan Peterman should be the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback in 2018.

Cover 1’s Aaron Quinn and Rob Quinn give their thoughts on Rodak’s take while offering their own opinions on the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback battle, which will heat up starting when training camp kicks off on July 27.
