Arizona’s Peterson relishes being highest-paid CB

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Patrick Peterson is the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.

Just ask him.

Not only did he tweet out the terms of his new contract – five years, $70 million, $48 million guaranteed – he referred to himself as the highest-paid at his position at least five times in the Arizona Cardinals news conference announcing the new deal on Wednesday – twice before he was ever asked a question.

He’s long maintained he’s the league’s best cornerback. Now he says has higher goals – the playoffs, a Super Bowl title, the Hall of Fame.

And Peterson doesn’t speak as if he’s boasting, rather just a matter of the facts.

In just three years, he has become, as he put it ”a face of the franchise.”
