07:05 AM ET 08.07 | At first, lining Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson up on offense seemed like a novelty. But it's happened daily since then, and not just for a snap or two, an indication that Peterson playing offense in 2013 is going to be more than a gimmick. The more coach Bruce Arians sees of Peterson on offense, the more he likes. During training camp, the "package" that includes Peterson has grown from a handful of plays to about 15. Arians might cap it there. "I had hopes that he could be something special, in a package a week," Arians said, "but after you see the athlete he is, it's like the guy could be one of the top five receivers in the league. So, you say, 'Hmmm, that's a lot of weapons sitting over here next to me.'"

Deion Sanders did it better.

4 Seconds Coach... Give the QB 4 seconds and the Cards can win some games.

I could definitely see Pat playing on both sides of the ball. Could be the next Deion.

Him serving as a decoy could free up Fitz from double coverage.

Better hope he don't run out of gas in the 2nd half from playing offense and defense and can not cover as good later part of the game.

I think you're right, but maybe what's his name can't throw that far

Palmer can get it down there... A few passes will go to the defense, but he can wing it.

he is a freak of nature, I could def see him playing both ways, I feel like his O game would be a lot like percy's

When you are talking about using CBs for receivers... one thing is for certain.


You don't have receivers.

Spot on. If the O-Line isn't improved from last year, it doesn't matter who you have at WR......the QB is going to get clobbered on a regular basis.

Joe, this is almost always true - if dude could be true to a route and catch the ball he'd earn twice as much as a receiver.

But I always enjoy watching them try.

He is the only player in NFL history with four punt-return touchdowns of at least 80 yards in a single season. And the Cards need all the help they can get with the Seahawks going good and 49ers hot again.

I could definitely see Pat playing on both sides of the ball. Could be the next Deion. Please be the football player only, not the person. Deion was a jackass.

I see Pat more the Lem Barney type, takes chances on 'D' gets burned sometimes, but when he gets his hands on the ball Look Out.

Possibly the most obnoxious athlete of all time.

The next Deion? Highly doubtful.

in a league where season ending injuries are becoming the norm, do you really want your best defensive player and truly special return guy playing every side of the ball...?

thats playing with fire but nothing unusual from a bad franchise.
