Cardinals Lock Up Peterson

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson and the team announced Tuesday evening they had agreed to terms on a five-year extension that is expected to make Peterson the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Peterson tweeted that the deal is worth $70 million, including $48 million guaranteed. An NFL source said the $48 million is fully guaranteed only in the event Peterson became injured. A sizable portion of that amount is not guaranteed if Peterson is released for skill or salary-cap reasons.
