Buffalo Bills release QB Nathan Peterman

The Bills went ahead a made a decision at quarterback that had to be made.

The Bills released quarterback Nathan Peterman on Monday, the team announced.

Peterman was a fifth-round pick in the 2017 National Football League draft.

Earlier in the day, coach Sean McDermott backed Peterman by saying he maintained his confidence in the second-year player. The Bills signed Matt Barkley two days later, but with both Allen and Anderson injured, and Barkley only on the roster for five days, Peterman was back under center at home against the Chicago Bears two weeks ago.

The specific locations are expected to be the Long Island City neighborhood in Queens and the Crystal City area in Arlington, Va. In January 2018, 20 "finalist" cities were named, including Raleigh, Toronto, Chicago , and Atlanta, among others.

The Bills (2-7) signed Barkley, 28, to a one-year deal on October 31 in light of several injuries at the quarterback slot. He also threw an interception on one of his three pass attempts in last season's AFC wild-card playoff loss.

The Jets suffered an embarrassing 41-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Peterman completed 31 passes for 188 yards, the fewest on that many completions in a game by any National Football League quarterback since at least 1950.

Peterman finished his illustrious career in Western New York by throwing three touchdowns and 12 interceptions in eight games (four starts).
