Patrick Peterson Won’t Rule Out Holding Out


Now that Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is eligible to redo his contract, he will be looking to get paid. When you are already a top 5 corner in the game, you’ve earned that. I don’t know how much money the Cardinals will be willing to put up but Peterson did not rule out a holdout today on PFT:

“I can’t speak on that right now,” Peterson said when asked whether a holdout is out of the question.  “Me and my agent, we haven’t talked about some of those possibilities.  But hopefully we can get something done.  If something were to happen, we restructure my deal or anything like that, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”

Larry Fitzgerald restructuring his deal helped the cause but Peterson won’t be the only need for the Cardinals this offseason. The other issue with holding out is it is not cheap. $30K per day is not player friendly. Look for them to get something worked out.
