Patrick Peterson cashes in with new deal
PHOENIX, AZ - Former LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson says he has reached agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals, with $48 million guaranteed.
Peterson revealed the terms via twitter Tuesday night. The Cardinals announced the deal a short time later, but did not disclose the terms.
Peterson has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons in the NFL, first as a kick returner then the last two seasons at cornerback, after Arizona made him the No. 5 pick overall out of LSU in 2011.
He had two years left on his original contract after Arizona had picked up its fifth-year option earlier this year.
