Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Wants to stay in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson said he hasn't discussed an extension with the Cardinals, though he'd love to stay with one team for his entire career, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson will turn 30 in July, entering the final season of a five-year, $70 million extension. He opened 2019 with a six-game suspension and didn't play up to his usual standard upon first rejoining the lineup, but he then closed out the year with five pass defenses and an interception over the final three weeks. Cardinals GM Steve Keim suggested in February that the team prefers to keep Peterson around beyond 2020.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Extension in the future?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Steve Keim confirmed Friday the team had discussed Peterson's contract with his representation, noting nothing has transpired yet, but that "we'd love to see him retire as a Cardinal," Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.

Entering the final year of his five-year, $70.5 million extension, there was some chatter Peterson could ultimately be moved after an uneven campaign which saw the star cornerback suspended six games and also limited by a calf injury. There's reason to believe Peterson's less-than-stellar performance could simply be due to rust and poor circumstance, but the Cardinals aren't exactly in a position to move on either way considering their lack of true secondary depth. It's possible the team could simply let the 2011 first-round pick play out the final year of his contract in order to safeguard itself should Peterson not return to his All-Pro form, but Keim's comments seem to indicate a more proactive approach, which could lock up the soon-to-be 30-year-old to a long-term contract.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Gets another two picks this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson notched 53 tackles (46 solo), seven pass breakups, two interceptions, one sack and one forced fumble in 10 contests during the 2019 season.

Peterson missed the first outings of his nine-year career, the result of a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Still, he posted his fourth-most tackles of any season, which would have equated to a whopping 84.8 stops over a 16-game slate. Opposing offenses seemed to fear Peterson less than normal in the past campaign, but the potential is there for the 29-year-old to be a lock-down corner again, assuming his 2019 showing merely was a blip on the radar.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Picks off second pass of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson totaled seven solo tackles, three pass defenses and one interception during Sunday's 38-24 win against the Browns.

Peterson hasn't been his Pro-Bowl self since returning from a six-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. On a per-game basis, though, he's on pace for the highest tackle total for a complete campaign (43 in eight games) of his notable career. Plus, Peterson has managed two interceptions, one sack and one forced fumble, putting himself into roster consideration in some IDP formats.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Will suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (calf) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports..

Peterson put in two limited practices during the week before logging a full one Friday. He should see a full slate of snaps against the 49ers.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Still limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (calf) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that Peterson was considered day-to-day, so it's no real surprise to see him putting in a limited practice. The 29-year-old seems on track to play Week 11 if he can avoid a setback.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury called Peterson (calf) day-to-day on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers in the fourth quarter due to a calf issue, but he appears to have a shot at suiting up Week 11 versus the 49ers. A decision on the veteran cornerback's availability will likely come down to how well he reacts after a full week of practice. The Cardinals have a bye around the corner Week 12, so the team could also opt to rest Peterson and allow him two weeks of recovery.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Suffers calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson exited Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a calf injury, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson had three solo tackles before leaving the game during the fourth quarter. The veteran cornerback's status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest when Arizona returns to practice.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Nabs first INT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson recorded six tackles (five solo), a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Saints.

Peterson ended the Saints' first possession of the second half by picking off a deep pass from Drew Brees intended for fullback Zach Line. This was Peterson's first interception of the year in his second game. His lockdown presence will be important as the Cardinals face Emmanuel Sanders and George Kittle twice over the next three weeks, including Thursday's game against the 49ers.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Impressive following suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson produced seven solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Giants.

After serving a six-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy, Peterson generated a solid stat line. However, he'll have a tough matchup on deck in Week 8 against the Saints, especially if Drew Brees (thumb) returns.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Activated to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals added Peterson (suspension) to the 53-man roster Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Peterson's spot on the active roster comes in conjunction with the placement of Brett Toth (illness) on the non-football injury list. The three-time All-Pro had been suspended the first six games of the season, and he's now set to retake his spot as Arizona's top cornerback. He'll be a valuable asset against the Giants on Sunday for the Cardinals' secondary.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Trade rumors shot down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona GM Steve Keim noted Friday "we are not trading Patrick Peterson," Kevin Zimmerman of 98.7 Arizona Sports reports.

Keim called Peterson a "player in his prime," and he talked up the veteran cornerback's impact on the field and in the locker room. Peterson was reinstated to the Cardinals' 53-man roster this week after being suspended for the first six games of the season, and he's set to reprise his role as the team's top cornerback. The three-time All-Pro will provide a huge boost to the team's secondary, which has struggled to provide reliable coverage in his absence.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Back from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (suspension) relayed Monday via his personal Twitter account that he's been reinstated to the Cardinals' 53-man roster.

An official transaction may not be announced for a couple more days, but the Cardinals will have their top cornerback available for his season debut Sunday against the Giants. Peterson's absence for the first six games of the season was felt acutely, as the Cardinals defense surrendered 8.5 yards per attempt (29th in the NFL) and 16 touchdowns through the air (32nd). While the return of Peterson won't completely resolve Arizona's issues in the secondary, the three-time All-Pro can at least be expected to provide a tough matchup for the opposition's top wide receiver in any given week.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Suspended for six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was suspended Thursday for the first six games of the regular season due to a violation of the NFL's PED policy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This is a huge surprise and an even bigger loss for the Cardinals defense, who will have to spend almost the first half of the regular season without one of the league's best defensive backs. In Peterson's absence, Arizona will now have to look to the likes of rookie Byron Murphy and veteran Tramaine Brock for more snaps at cornerback.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Committed to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson announced his commitment to the Cardinals for 2019 and beyond Wednesday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro-Am, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports. "I just want to apologize to everybody for asking for that trade in the middle of the season," Peterson said. "I'm here to stay, baby."

Peterson was referencing his trade request just before the deadline in late October. The rumors were quashed quickly, but with the Cardinals 1-6 at the time under new coach Steve Wilks, it was a telling vote of no confidence in the new staff and Peterson's role in the 4-3 scheme. Wilks since has been replaced by Kliff Kingsbury, whose hiring of Vance Joseph as defensive coordinator guarantees a return to the 3-4 alignment in which Peterson thrived the first seven years of his career. Peterson thus will return to facing top wide receivers in man-to-man coverage. During the aforementioned seven-year run, he averaged 10.3 passes defended and three interceptions per season, which fell off to five and two, respectively, in 2018.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Active for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson was initially listed as questionable for Week 16 due to an undisclosed illness, but will ultimately suit up. The veteran cornerback will attempt to contain Jared Goff and the Rams, who will be without star running back Todd Gurley (knee).

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson missed Friday's practice with an illness and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson was a surprise addition to the Cardinals' final injury report and will likely take the next day or two to rest up with the hope of playing in Week 16. If the star cornerback is ultimately forced to sit out by the time Sunday's 4:05 p.m. EST kickoff rolls around, it would provide a boost to the fantasy prospects of the Rams' top downfield threat, Brandin Cooks.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Puts rest to trade rumors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson released a statement Wednesday on his personal Twitter account pledging his commitment to the Cardinals amid ongoing trade speculation. "My energy is 100 percent focused on being part of the solution and helping us [the Cardinals] turn this around," the statement read. "I've never shied away from a challenge before and I'm not starting now. I am an Arizona Cardinal, and my focus is on this week's game."

While the trade market for the star cornerback has been active so far, it sounds like Peterson hopes to stay put in Arizona ahead of the Oct. 30 deadline. Across the Cardinals' seven games this season, Peterson has registered 35 stops (29 solo), two interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Not available via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Wilks said Monday that the Cardinals are "not trading" Peterson, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports

As Peterson goes through his eighth pro season, he has to be frustrated with the state of the franchise. Due to a league-low in time of possession, he's surpassed his tackle total from a season ago (35 versus 34) through seven games, while racking up two interceptions, one sack and one fumble recovery. There's no telling if the Cardinals are listening to offers, but any trade must be agreed to by next Tuesday, Oct. 30.

Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Asking for trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson has requested a trade, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Peterson surely knew his team was headed for a rebuilding campaign but probably didn't expect things to get this bad. It now looks like a multi-season project, which is a tough pill to swallow for a 28-year-old cornerback with a contract that runs through 2020. Schefter reports that the Cardinals still don't intend to trade Peterson.
