Raiders claim former Packers QB DeShone Kizer

Raiders claim former Packers QB DeShone Kizer”

In a rather surprising move, the Green Bay Packers have released backup quarterback DeShone Kizer, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Mixing up the third string quarterback doesn't significantly impact the team this year, but Peterman and Kizer could end up battling it out for the backup quarterback spot in 2020. The Packers traded former first-round pick Damarious Randall to the Browns for Kizer on March 15, 2018. In eight games over two seasons, Peterman completed 52.3% of his passes with 12 interceptions, three TDs and a 32.5 passer rating.

Now that the dust has settled, and the Monday night season-opener against the Broncos is a week away, let's look at the Raiders' 53-man roster and how it shapes. The young cornerback could be one of the two players selected to return from IR, but the Raiders have depth at the position so the team might not need his services.

While good news for Kizer, who knows how long his stay in Oakland might last with the quarterback field particularly crowded.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden praised Peterman multiple times during training camp.

The Raiders saw Kizer in person in Winnipeg during the third preseason game.

Kizer boasts mobility over both Glennon and Peterman, but accuracy has been Kizer's biggest struggle both with the Browns and Packers. Kizer spent the 2017 season starting the majority of games after Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury. He completed 4 of 7 passes for 24 yards and an interception and took three sacks during the second half.
