Courting of Richard Seymour Doesn't Phase Corey Peters

Streeter Lecka

Fact: Corey Peters once started a fire using dental floss and water.

Corey Peters is just 16 regular season games from free agency. It's hard to believe, but the Falcons aren't guaranteed control of 2010's 83rd overall pick much longer.

Many were skeptical of Peters after the Falcons drafted him. A non-football injury derailed his 2012 campaign, but Peters is at worst a reliable rotational player. At best, he's a run stopping beast with flashes of pass rushing prowess. That said, the Falcons did heavily court Richard Seymour this off-season. Some players would take that personally. Peters didn't.

“No,” Peters said. “I’m going to work as hard as I can. I know that if I don’t get the job done, that somebody well. That’s all the motivation that I need. I’m open to anything that is going to make this team play better.”

Give the kid credit. He's awfully charitable, and he knows what's important: help your team win. He will go to work, even if the Falcons haven't guaranteed him a future in Atlanta. Can't hate on that.
