Lions | Julian Peterson playing more traditional LB spot

Detroit Lions LB Julian Peterson has been playing more of a traditional linebacker spot during the team's OTAs, reports The Detroit News' Tim Twentyman. Peterson played as more of a hybrid linebacker/defensive end position last season. Head coach Jim Schwartz said, "You'll probably see Julian be in a little bit more situations package-wise as a pass rusher and as a blitzer. Where he's not just strictly a defensive end or little bit more of a hybrid position. I think that's a good thing. It's a change for him, but it's a result of adding guys that can rush the passer upfront."
