Nathan Peterman Returns To Bears Practice Squad

Monday, October 9, 1:20 PM

The Chicago Bears re-signed quarterback Nathan Peterman to their practice squad on Monday and designated defensive back Kyler Gordon (hand) to return from Injured Reserve. It's the third time already this year that Chicago has re-signed the 29-year-old veteran to their practice squad. For now, he'll continue to provide depth at the position behind starter Justin Field and rookie backup Tyson Bagent. Peterman, a former fifth-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2017, has played in 13 games (five starts) in his NFL career with the Bills, Las Vegas Raiders and Bears and has thrown for 712 yards, four touchdowns and 13 interceptions over five seasons. He played in three games (one start) for the Bears in 2022.

Brock Purdy Making The Most Of The Offseason

Monday, June 10, 8:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy feels better positioned for success heading into the 2024-25 campaign. Unlike last offseason, when the signal-caller was working his way back from an elbow injury, he has been training since the 49ers were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. "We got all the way to the end. We're right there and weren't able to finish it," Purdy said during an interview. "So for me, I had that taste in my mouth, and then get back into the gym, start slowly, working into it. And then here, in OTAs, getting with [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] and going over all the games that we played in, every play, and going over situational football and stuff, and taking that and actually going out on the field and running things and repping things, and throwing to receivers. Last year, I didn't have that, so now that I'm able to attack those things, I feel like I've gotten better." Purdy finished the regular season by throwing for 4,280 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 11 picks while completing nearly 70% of his throws. It remains to be seen if the 24-year-old will be better than he was in 2023-24. But he's a viable fantasy quarterback in nearly all formats, even more so if Brandon Aiyuk remains with the Niners.
