New Cards coach Arians wants Peterson on offense
GLENDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - Patrick Peterson is catching passes, throwing some and running with the ball during training camp.
Peterson is all for it.
“I’m pretty dynamic with the ball in my hands,” he said. “I’m not saying the offense needs help. They have great talent over there. But I guess (Arians) just wanted more explosive plays from guys that could help.”
Peterson is supremely confident, to say the least.
“I’m definitely an athlete that can pretty much play every skill position on the field,” he said.
It’s no idle boast.
“There’s not much he can’t do,” quarterback Carson Palmer agreed.
“He kind of put a bug in my ear when he did get hired,” Peterson said. “I didn’t know he was going to take it this far. He has a pretty big package for me. But as a defensive player, I’m definitely honored to even be in consideration for taking some offensive snaps.”
Peterson had a few snaps last season in the wildcat formation under then-coach Ken Whisenhunt. When Whisenhunt was fired and Arians came in, the new coach had an idea that he’d like some kind of package with Peterson on offense.
“I had hopes that he could be something special in a package a week,” Arians said. “But after you see the athlete he is, he probably could be one of the top five receivers in the league. So you say, `Hmm, that’s a lot of weapon sitting over here next to me.’”
