Arians says CB Peterson is even better close up than from afar

Entering his third NFL season, Patrick Peterson is impressing a new staff of coaches with his eye-popping skills.

Coach Bruce Arians says he knew the young cornerback was special but now that he's seen him up close he's even more impressed.

Peterson was back with the team at minicamp this week after missing some OTA sessions due to a death in the family. His goal this year is to return to the big-play punt return success of his rookie season while improving his performance as a shut-down cornerback after making the Pro Bowl at the position last season.

Peterson says it's "about putting everything in one pot and the recipe's gonna be some gumbo."
