Peterson, Cardinals talking, deal may or may not happen soon


The Cardinals and cornerback Patrick Peterson are close to a new contract.  Unless they aren’t.

Informed of the report from Yahoo Sports that a deal is close, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told PFT, “What does close mean?”

Per the source, the two sides have been talking about a new contract on and off for months.  Talks eventually broke down.  Within the past 48 hours, those talks have resumed.

Multiple sticking points still remain, including at least one that falls into the “deal breaker” category.  If that and the other issues can be resolved, the deal will be done.  If not, no deal happens, and Peterson will continue to be under contract for the next two years.

    Let me guess; the deal is off if Peterson can’t say he is the highest paid db of all time.

    I never get tired of that “unless they aren’t” bit.

    For all the Sherman lovers

    “The Cardinals took advantage of a huge pass interference call on Sherman to get back inside the red zone and Feely added his third field goal of the day to take a 9-3 lead”

    Final Score

    Cards 17 Seaducks 10

    Thank you Richard Sherman for helping Arizona beat the 12th man in Seattle!!!

    For a new coach, new team the Cardinals did exceedingly well in 2013. If they had been invited to the dance they would have been the most dangerous team in the playoffs. Sadly we had to settle for being the only team to be beat the seaducks AT HOME since 12-24-11 (nice xmas present ‘niners!)

    I was hoping it was Adrian Peterson and then I would tell everyone the Vikes have never won a Superbowl, the residents of MN are mouth breathers, and Mpls is just an isolated city known as Ice Station Zebra to the rest of the nation…but never mind.
