We knew that Patrick Peterson was being used in offensive sets because HC Bruce Arians liked his athletic ability but Arians took a step further, telling Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic via LarryBrownSports.com
“I had hopes that he could be something special in a package a week, but after you see the athlete he is, it’s like the guy could be one of the top five receivers in the league,” Arians said “So, you say, ‘Hmmm, that’s a lot of weapons sitting over here next to me.”- August 7th
Although I believe that Peterson will be used in Offensive sets I find it hard to believe he will be used in the volume that Arians is leading us to believe. Peterson’s best positions are on special teams and defense and I doubt that Arians will put his playmaking skills in jeopardy by spreading him too thin. As we have seen, when a returner is moved to a receiver position on offense it often hurts their return ability. Devin Hester is a recent example.
