The Raiders are tied for the NFL's worst record at 3-11, and they have no idea where they will play their home games in 2019.
No worries, though, because their (practice) savior is here.
According to multiple reports, the Raiders are signing former Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman to the practice squad.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the news.
Former Bills' QB Nathan Peterman is signing with the Oakland Raiders, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 19, 2018
NFL Media's Ian Rapoport was first to report the move is for the practice squad, not the 53-man roster.
Gruden signed Nathan Peterman because AJ McCarron is at the hospital after he and his wife gave birth to a baby boy last night, Cash Carter McCarron. Peterman will take scout team reps. https://t.co/FZpwMZ3unh https://t.co/Eh1fomLCVH— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 19, 2018
Peterman lasted two seasons in Buffalo before he was cut him on Nov. 12. His two seasons were cringe-worthy for Bills fans and Twitter gold for everyone else. Over eight games (four starts), Peterman has thrown three touchdown passes compared to 12 interceptions, including three picks-sixes.
So, for both comedic and serious reasons, Twitter is having a field day with Peterman going to Oakland.
Nathan Peterman becomes the 86th QB who has signed since Colin Kaepernick became a free agent.

NFL lawyer: "Your honor, I represent the NFL and I'm here to prove that quarterback Colin Kaepernick was not blackballed from the league."— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) December 19, 2018
Opposing lawyer: "Your honor, on Dec. 19, 2018, the Oakland Raiders signed quarterback Nathan Peterman. We rest our case."
Colin Kaepernick last played in the NFL in 2016, where he threw 16 TD passes to four interceptions in 12 games. He completed 59.2 percent of his passes that season. For his career, Peterman has a 52.3 completion percentage.

POLL: What's your favorite touchdown pass from Nathan Peterman's NFL career?— Ryan Nanni (@celebrityhottub) December 19, 2018
Peterman's last TD pass came on Oct. 14 in a 20-13 Bills loss to the Texans. Houston took the lead with 1:23 left in the game on a ... you guessed it, Peterman pick-six.
Shout out to #Raiders fans who ripped this piece weeks ago when I criticized Jon Gruden’s evaluation of Nathan Peterman ✌️. All that “Gruden was just saying good things because he was on TV” rationalizing...what now? Can’t wait to hear the same Raiders fans hype up Peterman. 👋 https://t.co/mge3DrJn2g— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) December 19, 2018
The Raiders' final game of the 2018-19 season is in Kansas City. Chiefs fans can only hope Peterman somehow finds the field in Week 17.
