Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson suspended 6 games over PED violation

Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson suspended 6 games over PED violation

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is being suspended six games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

League sources informed NFL Network and ESPN of the suspension Thursday. The corner will be eligible to return for the Week 7 tilt versus the New York Giants. According to John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports, Peterson's discontent was directly related to his suspension, as he was hoping the Cardinals would rework his deal before the National Football League handed down punishment.

Even with the Cardinals on the decline last season with the hope of turning things around in 2019, Peterson has always been one of those players the Rams worry about, and that trend will continue for as long as he remains in the NFC West. If they aren't winning road games, a game against the Cardinals at home is a chance to get back on track before again hitting the road to play Baltimore. Now, he'll miss the first six of his career due to the PED suspension. After a long legal battle against the NFL, Brady served his four-game suspension to start the 2016 season.

The suspension will cost Peterson over $3.8 million in salary.

The three-time All-Pro did not report to the Cardinals' voluntarily minicamp last month because he was upset with the team.

"I hope this doesn't damper the vision on the foundation - because obviously my name is attached to it - but this is for the kids", Peterson said. In October, he requested a trade before announcing his commitment to the team just a few days later. Peterson believed he could have saved $2 million or more, Gambadoro added on Thursday. "I had a conversation with Steve earlier".
