The Arizona Cardinals have been digging into their collective portfolios in the past few weeks, inking large contract extensions for stars Buddha Baker and DeAndre Hopkins. Both players are now under contract until 2024.
Meanwhile, Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson still has a one-year contract at just over $ 12.5 million. After that, it might get interesting.
With the cornerback market steadily rising, sources say Arizona has had no recent talks with Peterson about his contract and no one is scheduled. With the first week of today, the Cardinals debut the San Francisco 49ers at 4:25 pm. ET ̵
Peterson, who is at the end of a $ 70.05 million five-year contract, recently told reporters he was “at peace” with his contractual situation.
“There’s nothing I can do about it,” Peterson said. “I’m under contract until the end of the season. All I can do right now is play ball.”
Calling last year’s bad start a “boo-boo”, Peterson finished the season on a high note and hopes to continue on that for a stellar 2020.
“All I can do is worry about myself,” Peterson said. “And when the time is perfect, we can sit down and talk about some things.”
