Cardinals Plan To Exercise Patrick Peterson's Option

peterson The Cardinals decision to pick up the option was expected, because it allows them to keep an elite player under contract and gives the team leverage in negotiations for an extension. With two years remaining on his rookie deal, and the threat of a franchise tag, the Cardinals could retain Peterson's rights through 2016. The team does pay a toll if it follows that road. The $10 million salary in 2015 becomes fully guaranteed at the start of the season. This year, the franchise number for cornerbacks is nearly $12 million and it will increase a year from now. That salary is guaranteed also, and both represent significant charges to the salary cap.
