I like the move but I don't understand the timing.  Why do it now, 5 games into the season?  Why not at the beginning of the year?  What changed?

  From our end the choices were extremely few and from Anderson's POV maybe he was hoping for a likely playoff team.

“First and foremost, he’s a team first guy,” said Bills head coach Sean McDermott. “A guy that has been around, whether as a starter or a backup. A lot of football over the years. He’s got a good outlook on the game from an offensive standpoint. He understands defenses. So there’s just a lot of value to it in terms of where we are right now in that quarterback room.

 

Both GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott are wholly familiar with Anderson as a player having spent the better part of six seasons around Anderson. The veteran signal caller served as Cam Newton’s backup with the Panthers organization from 2011 to 2016.

To make room for Anderson on the active roster, the Bills released safety Dean Marlowe.

 

The Bills also added tight end Keith Towbridge to the practice squad and released cornerback Michael Hunter

Peterman is on the 53 for now, but I think it’s a matter of time before he’s cut. Just need DA to learn the playbook first. He may not be active until week 7

 

That's what I was thinking too. If Josh gets hurt, you can't have DA coming off the bench after only five days on the team.

I’m a little disappointed they released Dean Marlowe. I thought he filled in rather well Sunday.

Unless someone picks him up, Marlowe will be back on the PS as soon as they are allowed to do it.

 

 

Agreed...I am just worried that someone is going to pick him up, though.

I don’t know why it wasn’t earlier unless it was DA’s choice to wait.

Hopefully it is part of the plan, and not something reactionary because they are worried about Josh's development so far.

Peterman will be released after Anderson spends 2-3 weeks getting up to speed with the offense. Could definitely see Peterman signed to the practice squad after that.

Marlowe played every defensive play last week, and now gets cut...

 

Strange move..

 


Regardless of his play on the field this weekend it probably would have been safer for him if had "WR" by his name.

because they would never release HOFamer peterman

 

To be fair, you can't really have your backup QB be a guy who's had 3 practices with the team.  Although I do think it's a fair question as to who would be worse: Anderson w/o knowing the playbook, or Peterman with full prep?

I tend to think so too, but I won't count on it till it happens.  McDermott seems to really love Peterman.  I'm usually in favor of keeping 3 QBs unless you have a franchise guy, but when one of the 3 is Peterman, I think it's fine to go down to 2.

I work in HR.  I'll keep checking to see if I receive a resume from a Nathan Peterman.

The resume will arrive on a post it note.image.png.68e343cb3575fd70ed12224bd31cd52d.png

At this point I would have been fine with keeping Marlowe on the active roster and releasing Rafael Bush.

Hopefully it means Hyde is ready to practice. Maybe Marlowe will go back to PS

Weird 

 

 

 

Isn't it going off the board because of Watson's chest injury?

Can't Peterman go on the practice squad as one of the four guys with two or less accrued seasons?

Release Marlowe after the game he had on Sunday?  Wow, you ball out, get released.  You suck balls, like Pickerman, you stay on the team.  WTF McBeane?

They dont want Anderson to have to come in this week if Allen gets hurt as he doesnt know enough of the offense (scary I know) but I bet Peterman is still on the roster for a couple weeks

“Hey let’s cut a guy that played well when thrust into his first regular season action!”

 

Seriously, who was the guy that completely whiffed the tackle on Williams’ long punt return yesterday? We can’t cut that guy?

 

Lacey Underall is another cut I would have made before Marlowe, but I can't blame him for the missed tackle, it was a fair catch that wasn't called.  PR cheated and got away with it.

Welcome to life in the nfl as a fringe player only brought up for injury. I do think NP will be going to PS within a week or so.

Marlowe earned a spot on the roster with his play Sunday.  Sends the wrong message to cut him.

wish we kept Marlow, Holmes on the other hand. There were better candidates to get axed imo.
