Report: Patrick Peterson suspended six games for PED violation

Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson has been one of the most reliable players in football for the last eight seasons, but the All-Pro cornerback is not going to be able to contribute anything for the Arizona Cardinals to start the 2019 season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Peterson has been suspended six games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. He initially appealed but has now decided to accept the punishment.

Peterson, who has not missed a game since he was drafted by the Cardinals with the No. 5 overall pick back in 2011, recently hinted that he was unhappy with the organization and may want a trade. That was months after he publicly apologized for demanding a trade last season.

New Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury recently said he was unsure if Peterson would be present for OTAs. It’s unclear if that had anything to do with the eight-time Pro Bowler’s suspension.
