Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson: I need to play better


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is dissatisfied with his performance this season. The NFL's highest paid player at his position believes the scrutiny comes with the territory.

"Is that something I might shy away from?" he asked per the team website. "Not at all. Is that something I'm scared of? Am I worried about the concerns or the criticisms? Not at all. We have 11 more games to go. I have a lot of games left to improve, because I do believe I am not playing to the best of my ability right now. That's definitely going to change."

Peterson was upset with one particular play -- the slant to Washington wideout DeSean Jackson last week that resulted in a 64-yard touchdown. Peterson admitted that he did not get his head around fast enough to make a play on the ball.

His opportunity to perform better the rest of the year begins Sunday in Oakland.


Raiders' Carr won't play scared against Cardinals' Peterson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has expressed tremendous respect for Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but he will not shy away from throwing the ball in his direction Sunday.

"It's not an arrogant thing," Carr told ESPN about challenging premier corners. "It's not one of those things at all. Trust me, I know where they are and I'm very careful about where we're throwing at, what routes we're throwing.

"Patrick Peterson, obviously, is one of - it depends who you talk to - is the best, or one of the best, corners ... in the NFL. You just turn the film on and you're like, 'Wow, that guy plays corner? He looks like a linebacker and runs a 4.1' or whatever. He's a great player. I'll know where he is every snap, but to me, I have to go through my reads."

Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.

Through three seasons, Peterson has 161 total tackles, 12 interceptions, 42 passes defensed and a pair of fumble recoveries. He also has four punt returns for a touchdown, all coming in his 2011 rookie year.

Most impressive of all, Peterson has not missed a game in his short career.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patrick Peterson will report to minicamp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is not going to hold out in hopes of a contract extension, reports ESPN.

After missing most of the Cardinals' organized team activities this offseason, Peterson said he will report for Arizona's mandatory veteran minicamp which starts Tuesday morning.

"Like I told you guys, I won't hold out so we got that done," Peterson said. "I will be there ... be there full tilt ready to roll, taking that final step into camp."

Peterson's agent and the Cardinals are still negotiating an extension to his rookie contract, which expires after the 2015 season.

Patrick Peterson's extension could top $60 million


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Peterson is signed for the next two years at just under $13 million.


Sherman's deal should impact Patrick Peterson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Now that the Seahawks signed cornerback Richard Sherman to a four-year extension worth $57.4 million, including $40 million guaranteed, the Cardinals could have to pay Patrick Peterson even more, reports ESPN.

Sherman was drafted five rounds later than Peterson, and his resume includes two All-Pro nods and one Pro Bowl selection, in addition to helping the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII in February. But the report says Peterson could be in line for a bigger extension. Peterson has been a three-time Pro Bowl selection and has two All-Pro nods.

The report says if Sherman got $57.4 million and a higher premium was put on Peterson coming out of the draft, Peterson's extension may command upward of $65 million.

Cardinals will exercise option on Patrick Peterson


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Cardinals plan to exercise a fifth-year option for defensive back Patrick Peterson this summer according to the Arizona Republic Wednesday, a move which should come as little surprise.

Peterson has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons, and the Cardinals are already planning to discuss a long-term extension for the three-time Pro Bowler. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Peterson would make the average of the 10 highest paid corners in the league in his fifth season, assuming he does not sign a long-term extension.

Peterson is coming off a three-interception, 42-tackle season in 2013.

Keim would not say if the team would make Peterson the league's highest-paid defensive player. "Well, that's a good question," he told the website. "We'll have to see. I’ll tell you this, we want to keep him around here for a long time.”


Patrick Peterson won't rule out a holdout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is entering the final year of his rookie deal and wants a new contract. At this point, he's not ruling out a holdout. 

“I can’t speak on that right now,” Peterson said when ProFootballTalk.com asked him whether a holdout is out of the question. “Me and my agent, we haven’t talked about some of those possibilities. But hopefully we can get something done. If something were to happen, we restructure my deal or anything like that, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”

One of the league's top corners, Peterson is scheduled to make $2.88 million this season. He has 12 interceptions in three years.
