Report: Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson to be suspended six games

Tuesday it was reported that defensive lineman Dion Jordan, who had spent the last two seasons with the Seattle Seahawks was facing a ten game suspension for PED usage, and today word has come out that a star for the division rival Arizona Cardinals is facing a suspension for PED usage as well.

As NFL Insider for ESPN Adam Schefter later noted, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson will miss the first six games of the season, including the Week 4 matchup when the Seahawks come to town. The suspension will cost Peterson $3,882,352 in lost salary through missed game checks, but on the bright side for the Cards it will save the team that much in cap space.
