Bruce Arians: Patrick Peterson Could Be A Top Five WR
The Arizona Cardinals are trying to create a winning program, and sometimes you have to think outside the box to accomplish such a feat.
The Cardinals looking to add some explosiveness to their offense, have tried stud cornerback Patrick Peterson out on offense, and the results have been staggering.
The Arizona Republic is reporting that Peterson is seeing regular reps on offense, and according to head coach Bruce Arians, Peterson “could be a top five wide receiver in the league if he wanted to.”
“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.’”
Peterson says that he knew Arians had plans for him on offense, but that he didn’t think the coach “would take it this far.”
