Lions | New role could result in less sacks for Julian Peterson
Detroit Lions LB Julian Peterson could have a hard time surpassing the 4.5 sacks he had last year, according to Dave Birkett, of the Detroit Free Press. Peterson is playing a different role on third downs this year. Used as a rush end in many passing situations last year, Peterson is now dropping into coverage as a nickel linebacker. The Lions made the switch after upgrading their defensive line by drafting DL Ndamukong Suh, trading for DL Corey Williams and signing DL Kyle Vanden Bosch as a free agent.
