Marcus Peters doesn’t know if he’ll attract as much attention this season as last, when he was the NFL’s most targeted cornerback.

“We’re going to see,” Peters said Tuesday. “I can’t say anything about it. If they throw my way I’ve got my job to do.”

But there’s a sense Peters, whose eight interceptions tied for the most in the NFL and helped him win defensive rookie of the year, wants all the action he can get.

“I don’t have patience,” Peters said. “I’m going to get agitated real fast and I’m going to see what I can do to help the defense. But I do all of these things positively. I play football and I help my team out — supporting and do all the things I need to do.”
