Immediate and long-term ramifications of Patrick Peterson's six-game suspension

Immediate and long-term ramifications of Patrick Peterson's six-game suspension

It is unclear why the ban is for six games, as opposed to the standard four for a first-time offender.

Peterson is a three-time All-Pro and he holds the franchise record with eight Pro Bowl appearances, a streak that will come to an end with his suspension. Peterson will be 29 by the time he is eligible to return to the field on October 20 for a Week 7 game at the New York Giants.

Peterson, according to multiple sources of 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's John Gambadoro, was upset that the Cardinals could or would not restructure his contract to save him money, knowing full well the suspension was upcoming.

For months, there has been speculation that Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson has been unhappy with the Cardinals.

In 2018, Peterson tallied 54 tackles with five passes defensed and two picks.

Peterson is a huge part of the Cardinals' defense, and will be missed immensely during his absence. A blemish such as this comes as a major shock as Peterson has also never missed a single game in his career, a string of 128 games all with the Cardinals organization.

At this point in the process, we really don't know the details of what to expect from the Lions offense, but Peterson is arguably the best corner in the league and capable of shutting down half the field.

With Peterson out of the lineup, Arizona's depth at cornerback obviously takes a huge hit.

It's a disappointing announcement for Peterson, who had gone up to this point with no performance-enhancing drug issues in his career.

"It's voluntary. I communicated with Patrick". Peterson will not appeal the suspension, which reportedly dropped the punishment from eight to six games.
