TEEVENS ON PETERSON
“He was an offensive lineman in high school so he’s a football player who also snaps. But he will be a specialist with the graduation of John Hanna. We think he should have an opportunity based on what we saw in the camp and watching numerous tapes. He should be able to step in and compete right off the bat.”
