Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke He currently leads all corners in yards allowed with 641.Peterson is also tied for second in penalties given up(his eight equals Cedric Griffin and is one behind BrandonBrowner); hardly DROTY material. Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Patrick Peterson has made a name for himself as a puntreturner, as he’s taken four kicks back for touchdowns injust 11 games as a pro.However, he was drafted fifth overall because ofhis cover skills, and the fact that he has yet to reallyshow them can be a little concerning.According to ProFootballFocus.com, Peterson had arough day in Sunday’s win against the Rams, allowing sixreceptions for 74 yards. Apparently he never came close tobreaking up a pass, and has been picked on all season. Comments Share Indeed, Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt hasbeen trumping Peterson as the league’s best defensiverookie, and for the season Peterson has picked off apair of passes while racking up 47 tackles and eightpasses defensed. Peterson has certainly been thrown to the wolves, so tospeak, often times being asked to cover the opponent’sbest receiver. The former LSU star clearly struggled earlyon against the likes of Carolina’s Steve Smith and NewYork’s Hakeem Nicks, but seemed to be finding his footing.Has he slipped and regressed?Hard to say, and as long as he keeps scoring touchdownsfew will complain. Unless, of course, he keeps allowingthem, too.
