Cardinals DB Patrick Peterson says his diabetes is under control
by Sean d'Oliveira |

Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson admits dealing with diabetes affected his play during the 2014 season, reports The Arizona Republic.

"Yeah, it did," he said. "I'd rather not go into deep detail about that. It was a situation that occurred during the season. The team [doctors] found it and got it all under wraps."

Despite the diabetic diagnosis, Peterson said he doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward.

"No question it made a big difference and once they found out what the problem was, they put their hands around the throat, wrangled it and we moved forward from it," he said.

Cardinals' Peterson said it may be tough to keep Cromartie
by Jason Butt |

Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson would like to keep teammate Antonio Cromartie in the secondary. However, he understands that may be a difficult task to pull off.

Speaking to, Peterson said that Cromartie, set to become a free agent in March, has talked about possibly heading back to the Jets, where he played from 2010-2013. Making the Jets more attractive is the fact that former Cardinals defenisve coordinator Todd Bowles took over as the new head coach.

"That's all he talks about is freaking New York," Peterson said. "I'm definitely trying to get him to stay and we'll see what happens."

In a previous interview with the NFL Network, Cromartie made mention that he will keep his options open this offseason.

"I'm leaving the door open," Cromartie said. "Right now, until the Super Bowl is over, I'm still an Arizona Cardinal. Until they come to me about a contract, I’m still an Arizona Cardinal. Once March 10 at 4 o'clock hits, March 12 at 9 a.m. hits, and no one's offered me a contract, then I'm free game. And I'm open to anything to go out and try to win a championship and help any organization."

Lions-Cardinals to feature premier WR-CB matchup Sunday
by Marty Gitlin |

The Mutual Admiration Society has two steadfast members in the NFL fraternity - Lions super wideout Calvin Johnson and Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. The two will be going head-to-head Sunday at Arizona.

"No doubt there's respect," Johnson told "You've got players that play hard out there on the field, make plays for their team. So, there's definitely a big level of respect there."

Peterson feels the same about Johnson, calling him "by far the most dynamic and athletic receiver in the league" during a recent radio interview.

Johnson, however, will likely not be matched up against Peterson throughout. Antonio Cromartie could also line up against Megatron at times, though his primary assignment will be Golden Tate.

Cards' Peterson: 'Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner'
by Larry Hartstein |

As he prepares to face Lions wideout Calvin Johnson on Sunday, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson told SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio that he's put his rough start to the season behind him. Peterson quieted Dez Bryant in Week 9, then intercepted his first two passes of the season Sunday against the Rams, returning one 30 yards for a touchdown.

"I was disappointed in my first half of the season, I believe I wasn't playing to my standards," Peterson said, via "I was fighting through injuries. Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner, and I'm ready to roll from here on out."

The Cardinals and Lions are playing for the third straight year. Though Johnson caught 16 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two matchups, the Cardinals won both.
