Peterson eyeing spot with contending team
With his back finally healthy, CB Will Peterson will soon begin the process of auditioning for teams, writes Len Pasquarelli.
This update is in order: After months of treatments and rehabilitation -- but note, please, no surgery -- Peterson was cleared by specialists in late September to return to the football field and will begin auditioning for teams in a few weeks. Why the delay before working out? Because Peterson, who has not played in a game in 13 months, wanted a few weeks to get himself back into some semblance of football shape before putting himself in front of scouts to be scrutinized.
And when he's ready to work out, there figure to be plenty of personnel directors and scouts who will want to eyeball Peterson, since more than a dozen franchises have been in touch with agent Ron Slavin to inquire about the cornerback's status.
