Patrick Peterson says he will be back with the Cardinals in 2020 – ClutchPoints

It looks like the Arizona Cardinals star cornerback is here to stay. After the Cardinals last home of the 2019 season, eight-time Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson was asked if Sundays game against the Cleveland Browns would be his last home game as a Cardinal.

The 29-year-old star assured media that he would back in Arizona for next year. The 6-foot-1, 203-pound cornerback out of LSU signed a five-year contract worth over $70 million in 2014 and is under contract until 2020. The cornerback is set to make $12,050,00 next year in Arizona.

Since he entered the league in 2011, Peterson has been one of the best players at his position. The three-time First Team All-Pro selection has recorded 24 interceptions, 78 pass deflections and 423 tackles throughout his nearly nine-year career.

This season, despite missing the first six weeks of the season due to suspension and injury, the veteran cornerback has totaled 36 tackles, one sack, and one interception. Before this year, the Cardinals star has been incredibly durable playing in all 128 of his first 128 games.

Despite Peterson being a constant star for Arizona, the Cardinals pass defense has been awful this year. The Cardinals have surrendered a league-worst 294.2 passing yards per game and 28.8 points per game which ranks 31st.

The swiss cheese defense is a big reason why Arizona sits in last place in the NFC West with a 4-9-1 record. However, in the past, with Peterson as the star, the Cardinals defense has been elite. The last time they made the playoffs, 2015, the secondary allowed just 230.4 passing yards per game that ranked within the top 10 in the NFL that season.
