Cardinals star Patrick Peterson gets 6-game suspension for PEDs

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

Peterson is reportedly being suspended four games for the PED violation and an additional two for a masking agent, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Peterson had previously demanded to be traded in 2018, but later apologized for being outspoken.

Peterson's suspension for the opening six games puts pressure on second-round rookie Byron Murphy to help fill some massive shoes out of the gate. Last month, he deleted all mentions of the Cardinals on his social media pages in another reported rift with team management.

The Cardinals' star cornerback said he was "definitely, definitely sorry" for the infraction that will keep him out until the team's Week 7 game against the Giants. The suspension was initially said to be eight games, but the National Football League insider later reported that it would be six after Peterson dropped his appeal.

New York, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, could also follow the Raiders' lead and hire Daniel Jeremiah away from NFL Media. If you're a NY sports fan who puts your support behind the Knicks and Jets, well, you've had better days.

Peterson, who is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, will miss Arizona's regular-season opener vs. the Lions, then games at Baltimore, at home against the Panthers and Seahawks, at Cincinnati and at home against the Falcons.

Peterson will be eligible to return to the team on October 14 and will be eligible to play in the Cardinals' game at the New York Giants on October 20.

Peterson has started all 128 games since being drafted by the Cardinals in 2011, and his 23 interceptions are tied for third-most in the NFL. Peterson hosted a welcome party on Thursday in Scottsdale and has a charitable golf tournament on Friday morning, with the proceeds geared toward improving the lives of low-income and inner-city youth.

The eight-time Pro Bowler was mentioned as a trade target both around the trade deadline last season and during this offseason.
