Raiders Expected To Keep Three QBs Including Mike Glennon & Nathan Peterman


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Raiders are expected to keep three quarterbacks on their active roster with Mike Glennon serving as Derek Carr‘s backup quarterback in 2019. 

Rapoport adds that Raiders HC Jon Gruden really likes Nathan Peterman and wants to help him “resurrect his career.” According to Rapoport, Peterman is expected to stick on their active roster.

Glennon, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.104 million rookie contract before signing a three-year, $45 million contract with the Bears in 2017. 

However, the Bears elected to move on from Glennon after just one season and he later signed a two-year $8 million contract with the Cardinals last year. Arizona released him during the offseason and he later signed on with the Raiders. 

In 2018, Glennon appeared in two games for the Cardinals and threw for 174 yards while completing 71.4 percent of his passes and one touchdown.

Peterman, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bills back in 2017. The Bills made the decision to move on from Peterman in November of last year and he eventually signed on to the Raiders’ practice squad.

Oakland brought Peterman back on a futures contract this past January. 

In 2018, Peterman appeared in four games for the Bills and completed 54.3 percent of his passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 50 yards and touchdown.
