05:38 PM ET 02.08 | New Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians confirmed that cornerback Patrick Peterson will continue to return punts in the 2013 season. The former No. 5 draft pick had an electric rookie year returning the ball, averaging 15.9 yards and scoring four touchdowns in 2011. Those numbers dipped last season, however, as he only managed 8.4 yards per return and could not find the endzone. Arians doesn't seem to be concerned about Peterson's low production: ""He can't get his hands on the ball enough for me. As long as the other team is punting, he's going to be back there...until he waves me off and says, ???Coach, can I take a blow?' "

.....Peterson's low production.. Something to do with not stopping the other team from scoring I'm thinking.
