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.

Jaguars Don't Pick Up Mac Jones' Fifth-Year Option

Friday, May 3, 2:28 PM

Unsurprisingly, the Jacksonville Jaguars didn't pick up the fifth-year option on new quarterback Mac Jones, who the team acquired in a trade with the New England Patriots this offseason. Jones was New England's first-round pick in 2021 but failed to make an impact as their starter under center. He went to the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2021 but was merely a replacement player. Jones started all 42 games that he played for the Patriots, but the team went 4-13 in 2023 and Jones found himself on the bench for the final six games. The 25-year-old from Alabama regressed in each of his three seasons in Boston, but it didn't help that the Patriots were constantly bringing in new offensive coaches during his time there. Now in Jacksonville, Jones will operate as the clear backup to Trevor Lawrence in 2024.
