Less than 24 hours after releasing Nathan Peterman, the Chicago Bears have re-signed the veteran quarterback to the active roster. Peterman will presumably be the Bears' backup to Justin Fields in Week 3 against the Buccaneers. Undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent will serve as the emergency quarterback. The 29-year-old Peterman has played in 13 games in his five-year NFL career.

The Chicago Bears released veteran quarterback Nathan Peterman on Wednesday. With Peterman now gone, the Bears have just two signal-callers on their roster, starter Justin Fields and undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent. If something were to happen to Fields, the Bears, already 0-2 on the season, would be in some serious trouble at the position. They'll most likely bring in another veteran option at some point or sign another QB to their practice sooner than later. The 29-year-old Peterman will now look for work elsewhere. He has played in 13 games (five starts) in his five-year NFL career with three different teams.

Chicago Bears quarterback Nathan Peterman, not rookie Tyson Bagent, will serve as the backup signal-caller to open the 2023 regular season behind starter Justin Fields, according to the team's official depth chart released in advance of Week 1 against the division-rival Green Bay Packers this Sunday. The 29-year-old Peterman was initially cut when the Bears cut down to 53 players last Tuesday, but he was later re-signed to the active roster. The Bears are carrying Fields, Peterman and Bagent on the active roster. Bagent is the only Division II QB to make a 53-man roster in the NFL. Peterman has two years worth of knowledge of Chicago's offense and earned his way into the role behind Fields this year.

The Chicago Bears have released veteran quarterback Nathan Peterman ahead of Tuesday's deadline for teams to cut down to 53 active players. Peterman could sign back with the practice squad, but it looks like rookie Tyson Bagent will serve as Justin Fields' direct backup in 2023. Peterman has thrown four touchdowns to 13 interceptions since entering the NFL in 2017 and has spent time with the Buffalo Bills and Las Vegas Raiders before joining Chicago last offseason. Needless to say, he's not on the fantasy radar in any format.
