Patrick Peterson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Peterson won't appear on offense nor in the return game during the upcoming campaign, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thus, Peterson will be able to focus solely on his assignments as a cornerback, which is a scary proposition after a stellar first three seasons earned him a five-year extension Tuesday. Once the deal kicks in in 2016, he'll be considered the NFL's highest-paid corner, with an average potential salary of $14 million per year. The addition of Antonio Cromartie in the offseason may allow Peterson to work away from an opponent's best receiver on occasion in 2014, but the LSU product will normally shadow the Calvin Johnsons and Demaryius Thomases of the league.
Peterson agreed to a five-year contract extension Tuesday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Peterson announced on Twitter that the extension is worth $70 million, with $48 million guaranteed. It's quite a massive extension for a defensive back to stay in Arizona, but Peterson (who notched 42 tackles and three picks last season) is about as dynamic as they come, and is still young enough to potentially be in his prime throughout the length of the deal.
Peterson's fifth-year option was officially exercised Monday, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Thus, the ballhawk that is Peterson is locked up through the 2015 season. In 48 career games, he's picked off 12 passes, despite opponents avoiding throwing his way after tallying three interceptions combined in Weeks 4 and 5 last fall. In any case, the Cardinals now have ample time to discuss a contract extension, which will surely come to pass at some point.
Peterson recorded just 42 tackles (40 solo), 13 passes defended, and three interceptions during the 2013 campaign.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Peterson will see opponents' top wideouts as he is the Cardinals' top corner. He may see less time on special teams due to rookie and fellow college teammate Tyrann Mathieu.

2012

Peterson badly struggled in coverage as a rookie and failed to make plays on the ball (two interceptions), but he added a solid total of 64 tackles (59 solo), one sack and 13 passes defended. As anyone remotely familiar with the LSU product knows, though, Peterson's value is inflated by his punt return skills. He returned four punts for touchdowns as a rookie. He should be good for at least one or two more touchdowns this season and could get better as a defender.
