Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson admitted that the two sides have not had any contract talks this off-season. Peterson will enter the final year of his contract in 2020.
He is slated to make $5 million more during the upcoming season than he did in 2019. He is slated to make $12 million in a base salary.
Peterson also has a $250,000 roster and workout bonus for the 2020 season. In addition, he has $634,588 ‘restructure’ worked into the deal, which has been in place for the last five seasons.
The 29-year-old — who will be 30-years-old in July — has spent his entire career with the Cardinals. He was their 5th overall pick in the first-round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Peterson had the worst season of his career in 2019. He appeared in 10 games, including 10 starts. He had 53 tackles, including three tackles for a loss and one quarterback hit.
He also had 1.0 sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble, and seven pass deflections.
The 10 games were the fewest in his career. He had started 16 straight games for eight straight years.
In his career, he has appeared in 138 games, including 138 starts. He also had 438 tackles, including 10 tackles for a loss and four quarterback hits.
Peterson has 4.0 career sacks, with 25 interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown; two forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries, and 83 pass deflections.
The All-Pro cornerback was suspended the first six games of the season. However, he was not himself until later in the season.
He is going to have to play at a very high level to be able to earn a long-term deal once again — from either the Cardinals or another team.
