Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden shocked many when he picked up former Buffalo Bills cast-off Nathan Peterman. Now, he’s making it clear that Peterman could be the backup quarterback in Oakland for the 2019 season.

Speaking about the backup quarterback battle between Peterman and Mike Glennon, Gruden said, “This Nate Peterman is growing on me,” per Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Here’s Gruden’s full quote:

So, Raider Nation? You might be looking at a scenario this coming season in which the backup plan to Derek Carr is a guy who is a legend for throwing picks.

Have a ton of fun with that.
