Stephen Frederick Peterman (born January 11, 1982) is a former American football guard who played for the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions. He played college football at Louisiana State University.
He accepted a football scholarship from Louisiana State University, where he began as a tight end before being converted to defensive end during his freshman season. He was moved to left guard as a sophomore, starting 12 games and allowing only one sack. The next year he again allowed only one sack. As a senior he was moved to right guard and allowed only one sack.
He started 29 of his 48 career games (25 starts at left guard) and was a part of the 2003 national championship team.
Peterman was selected in the third round (83rd overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. He struggled with injuries during his two years with the Cowboys. As a rookie he broke a finger at the start of training camp, before tearing the ACL and MCL of his right knee in the last game of the pre-season (while playing special teams), which placed him on the injured reserve list.
The Detroit Lions signed him to their practice squad on October 17, 2006 and was activated for the last three games (2 starts) of the year. He became the team's starting right guard in 2007. The next year he was inactive in 2 games because of a hand injury.
