Patrick Peterson lands a mammoth extension


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2014) The Cardinals announced that they've signed cornerback Patrick Peterson to a five-year extension worth $70 million that includes just over $48 million in guarantees. Peterson announced the deal himself on Twitter. He's now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. 

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. 


Report: Cardinals, Patrick Peterson nearing deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patrick Peterson to focus solely on defense


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 won't play offense or return punts


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who returned punts and caught six passes last year, will focus only on defense in 2014, reports the Arizona Republic. "I know there's less of a chance of him getting hurt without everyone chasing after him (on punt returns)," defensive coordinator Todd Bowles told the paper. "That makes me happy."

Patrick Peterson's extension could top $60 million


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) The Cardinals and cornerback Patrick Peterson are negotiating an extension that could be worth more than $60 million, reports ESPN. The Seahawks just gave corner Richard Sherman a four-year, $57 million extension, including $40 million guaranteed.

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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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.


Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson could square off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pass catchers don't do much against Falcons


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The Cardinals pass catchers not named Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd failed to distinguish themselves Week 8 against the Falcons.

Patrick Peterson does a little on both sides


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Peterson finished the game with five tackles -- four solo -- and a pass defense on defense, while adding one reception for 19 yards on one target. Peterson has three catches for 34 yards in seven games. 


Patrick Peterson's two interceptions key in Week 4 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2013) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson had two interceptions in the closing minutes during a 13-10 win Week 4 at Tampa Bay.

Peterson's first interception set up Arizona's first touchdown in six quarters -- a 13-yard touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to Larry Fitzgerald that tied the game at 10. The other ended any chance of rookie quarterback Mike Glennon, who was making his first career start, bringing the Bucs back after Jay Feely's 27-yard field goal snapped a 10-10 tie with 1:29 remaining.

"I'm really surprised they threw toward him. And with a rookie quarterback, he's going to make you pay," Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "I think he's the best in the league. Some will argue that Darrelle (Revis) is, but it's not even close in my opinion."


Patrick Peterson contributes on offense again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Though he was certainly a factor on defense, Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson didn't contribute much statistically Week 3 at New Orleans, finishing with two solo tackles. He did contribute on offense, though, rushing once for 11 yards and catching a pass for minus-2. In Week 2, he became the first defensive player since the merger to catch a pass and complete a pass in the same game.

Patrick Peterson gets time on offense


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2013) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson played both ways against the Lions.

Peterson picked up four tackles, and one pass defensed on defense, but made his presence felt on offense as well. Peterson had one catch for 17 yards. He also had a pass attempt, completing his only throw for 17 yards. He'll take on the Saints Week 3.


Cardinals DST facing more explosive Rams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) The Cardinals DST, which finished 11th last season, features playmakers like end Calais Campbell (6.5 sacks), corner Patrick Peterson (7 INTs) and rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu. But leading sacker Daryl Washington (9 sacks) is suspended the first four games.

After not having much success against the Rams last year -- three sacks and two turnovers in two games -- the Cardinals face a more potent attack Sunday in St. Louis. Sam Bradford has new weapons in tight end Jared Cook and rookie slot receiver Tavon Austin, and wideout Chris Givens is an emerging deep threat. The offensive line looks improved with Jake Long taking over at left tackle and Rodger Saffold moving to the right side.

For Week 1, you can find a lot better options than Arizona's DST.

The report says the Cardinals are using Peterson on about 15 offensive plays, and coach Bruce Arians isn't afraid to add more work for him.

"I had hopes he could be something special in a package a week," Arians said. "But after you see the athlete he is, it's like, you think he could probably one of the Top 5 receivers in the league. You think, 'Hmm, that's a lot of weapon sitting next to me.'"
