According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Peterman is signing a contract with the Oakland Raiders.

With only two weeks left in this year's regular season, the Raiders are 3-11 and will miss the playoffs.

"There's a good chance of that", Gruden shared when asked if Peterman is in the team's long-term plans. "Hopefully we can take him into the offseason program and see if we can't restart him and get him going".

Gruden never had a bad thing to say about a player during these segments, however, he put plenty of praise on Peterman coming out of college, calling him the most National Football League ready QB at the 2017 draft. In eight games with the Bills, Peterman was 68-of-130 for 548 yards, three touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Peterman is ready to walk in and be a contributor from day one. As our Jared Dubin once wrote, "his 32.5 passer rating is several points worse than it would have been if he had spiked the ball on every play".

Because of that, the Oakland Raiders are set to bring Peterman in for a workout.

"He's on the practice squad right now", Gruden said.
