Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson's hopes of receiving a new contract will not prevent him from attending the team's mandatory three-day minicamp.
"Like I told you guys, I won't hold out so we got that done," Peterson said, via ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss. "I will be there ... be there full tilt ready to roll, taking that final step into camp."
Peterson, who has been absent for a majority of the Cardinals' voluntary OTAs, has been seeking a new deal this offseason that would pay him more than Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Sherman signed a four-year deal worth $56 million this offseason. While Peterson still has two years remaining on his rookie deal, the two sides have had conversations since the NFL Scouting Combine in February.
