What is coming in 2013: Deangelo Peterson will very likely be a non-factor this season. Peterson was waived with an injured-reserve designation when the team signed veterans Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson. He certainly has the size to be a productive Tight End in the NFL, but the 2013 season will not be that season. Peterson has some upside to develop into match-up nightmare in the NFL, but his slow 40 yard dash time at the combine (4.76) does show some of his limitations as a pass catcher.
