On Thursday, it was reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the Chicago Bears are bringing back Nathan Peterman.
The Tennessee and Pittsburgh product made headlines back in Week 11 of the 2017 season, where he had a nightmarish first career start. Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half, prompting head coach Sean McDermott to immediately go back to the previously benched Tyrod Taylor.
In 13 game appearances, Peterman has completed just 56 percent of pass attempts for four touchdowns, 13 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 39.4. Obviously, those numbers leave a LOT to be desired.
So you can probably guess how the NFL Twitter world reacted to news of the Bears bringing back Peterman…

2021 first-rounder Justin Fields is obviously Chicago’s QB1. GM Ryan Poles ended any speculation that the club could look to move on from Fields when he traded the first overall selection to the Carolina Panthers, thus moving Chicago eight spots down the order.
Former Carolina quarterback P.J. Walker is currently the No. 2 quarterback on Chicago’s depth chart. Walker had some quality outings in Carolina and asserted himself as a decent backup, so it’s obviously unlikely that Peterman will see much (if any) playing time in 2023.
The Bears were football’s worst team in 2022, finishing with a record of 3-14. But Poles has wasted little time trying to improve the roster, getting star receiver D.J. Moore from Carolina as part of the blockbuster return for the No. 1 selection. On fop of that, he landed former Buffalo star linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and ex-Philadelphia Eagles standout linebacker T.J. Edwards in free agency.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
