ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP/WBEN) — The Oakland Raiders have signed former Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman to the practice squad.

Peterman was a fifth-round draft pick by Buffalo in 2017 but was cut by the Bills last month after struggling when given a chance to start. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

He threw five interceptions in his first start in 2017 against the Chargers before getting benched. He then won the starting job out of training camp this year but was pulled in the second half of the opener after completing 5 of 18 passes with two interceptions. He started again in Week 9 against Chicago, throwing three more interceptions.  He is 68 for 130 in his career for 548 yards, three TDs, 12 interceptions and a 32.5 passer rating.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden had high praise for Peterman before the NFL draft, calling him "the most pro-ready QB". 

Oakland also signed linebacker Cayson Collins to the practice squad Wednesday.
