Patrick Peterson announces five-year extension with Cardinals

Cardinals Camp Football AP

Cornerback Patrick Peterson has reached an agreement with the Arizona Cardinals on a five-year contract extension.

Peterson had two more seasons left on his rookie deal with the Cardinals after Arizona picked up the fifth-year option on his contract earlier this offseason. Peterson announced his new deal via his Twitter account.

While we won’t know what the deal is truly worth until getting a closer look at the numbers, Peterson’s deal is right in line with the extensions given to Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks and Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns this offseason.

According to Peterson’s self-reported numbers, Peterson would bring in more total guaranteed money ($48 million) than Sherman ($40 million) or Haden ($45 million). However, not all of that money is likely fully guaranteed.

    Hell na, I hope people know that he’s the 16th best cornerback in the league (Based on people who study the game) he is getting more money than sherman (4th) and Haden (2nd) because he complained about his contract more than anyone, I hope he can back up the talk on the field, cause this could very well strike Arizona and He badly According to Pro Football Focus’s play-by-play grading system, Sherman has finished no lower than sixth among cornerbacks over the past two years; meanwhile, Peterson has finished no higher than 16th.

    I dont think Richard Sherman needs to worry anymore about Peterson ever talking about him…

    Best corner in the NFL

    Looking at their component stats, there’s no area where Peterson beats Sherman: Since 2012, Peterson has allowed a higher completion percentage (53 percent to Sherman’s 49 percent) and a much higher touchdown percentage (7 percent to Sherman’s 2.8 percent). Peterson also has a lower interception percentage (5.4 percent to Sherman’s 11 percent) and a much higher Adjusted Yards per Attempt figure (6.3 to Sherman’s 2.9). Even if you subscribe to the theory that a good cornerback’s primary value is in preventing passes from ever being attempted — which I do — opponents threw at Peterson once every 11.8 snaps, and at Sherman once every 13.7 snaps.

    Best corner in the game. Maybe the best athlete in the NFL

    I don’t mind a division rival overpaying for an average corner back. Go Hawks!

  8. shayeezy says: Jul 30, 2014 12:28 AM

    beyond corny to post the details of the deal on his twitter. guy clearly has a lot of growing up to do.

  9. mrwalterisgod says: Jul 30, 2014 12:35 AM

    Sherman and Haden are still better.

  10. In Teddy We Trust says: Jul 30, 2014 12:35 AM

    It’s bad form to tweet how much money you’re making.

  11. jshawaii22 says: Jul 30, 2014 12:38 AM

    good for AZ. Now we’ll be able to see Percy and Paul burn his butt for the next 5 years.

    Go Seahawks!

    Great player

    He deserves every penny.

    Peterson is a class act and the best corner in the NFL not named Revis. Sherman is classless and a pure product of Seattle’s system, not to mention Earl Thomas as his safety on every play.

  16. patriotsarespygaters says: Jul 30, 2014 12:58 AM

    Very good player an All pro but Overpaid Overrated….

  17. slats7 says: Jul 30, 2014 1:10 AM

    Best CB in the game. Sherman isn’t asked to do a quarter of what Peterson is asked. Peterson plays offense, defense and special teams and on defense he covers the #1 WR wherever he goes. Sherman plays one side of the field with safety help from the best tandem in the league (Thomas & Chancellor).

    Shermans already mad, hard to believe someone who made it to that level of success is a common troll with no respect for ones coworkers or equals. He should look at the current version of TO because thats where this classless idiot is headed. What a tool.

    But thats none of my business.

    Congrats to PP and the Cards. They’ll be laughing in two years when Peterson is on his way to another pro bowl and Seattle is trying to recoup some of Sherman’s guaranteed money after they cut him.

  21. ishallcomment says: Jul 30, 2014 5:02 AM

    5 year extension + 2 years left is a 7 year deal.

    70 mil / 7 years = 10 mil a year, is about right for a top CB.

  22. tahnoonzee says: Jul 30, 2014 5:23 AM

    Won’t help him against the Chargers in week 1, MNF!

  23. mediasloppy says: Jul 30, 2014 9:21 AM

    Lame and tacky. I really hope there will never be a trend of players thinking money and tweets can win over fans or define them as a player. It just looks like a diva contest to the vast majority of fans who can only pay for one or two games a season if at all.

    I’m not saying he’s not worth the money. I’m just saying shut up and play while others define you worthy.

  24. newdayintampabay says: Jul 30, 2014 9:31 AM

    He earned it. Best corner in the game IMO. Nice to see a corner back who actually follows the number 1 WR get paid what they deserve

  25. JackedUpSports says: Jul 30, 2014 9:52 AM

    I don’t think Richard Sherman needs to worry anymore about Peterson ever talking about him…

    I don’t think Richard Sherman needs to worry anymore about Peterson ever talking about him again…

  27. navyboy0812 says: Jul 30, 2014 9:58 AM

    Who cares if he tweeted out the details of his contract? All the stuff was gonna come to surface by reporters anyway.

  28. jimmyt says: Jul 30, 2014 11:11 AM

    He’s that kick returner dude right?

    “Best corner in the NFL”

    If he played left corner only I would agree, trying to emulate Revis on Arizona’s defensive scheme makes him drop a bit.

    Revis and Sherman are still the top ones, no matter which one you believe is the #1 or the #2.

  30. thepoofighters says: Jul 30, 2014 11:21 AM

    haters keep hatin.

  31. darksidecowboy says: Jul 30, 2014 1:27 PM

    Its funny how Hawks fans don’t acknowledge how Sherm doesn’t always cover the opposing teams #1 WR. He’s has stats and is a top corner, but is he going against the best competition each and every week? Peterson has way more responsibilty. I expect Cromartie (now a Card) to have comparable numbers to Sherman after this year, main reason he signed with Arizona.
