Patrick De'mon Peterson (born July 11, 1990) is an American football cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Louisiana State University (LSU), where he won the Chuck Bednarik Award as the best defensive player in the country, the Jim Thorpe Award as the best defensive back, and was unanimously recognized as an All-American. He was selected fifth overall by the Cardinals in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Peterson has been invited to the Pro Bowl in each of his first six seasons in the NFL, and is considered to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league.[1][2][3]

Early years[edit]

Peterson was born in Pompano Beach, Florida on July 11, 1990. He attended Blanche Ely High School, where he played running back and defensive back for the Blanche Ely Mighty Tigers high school football team. In his junior campaign, he recorded 11 total touchdowns on offense, while recording seven interceptions and 54 tackles on defense. He also returned three kick-offs for touchdowns and added 10 rushes for 213 yards. As a senior, Peterson compiled 733 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns (9 rushing, one kick return and one punt return). Defensively, he had 21 tackles and five interceptions. Besides numerous All-American team selections, Peterson was named Defensive Player of the Year by USA Today and played in the 2008 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

He was also on the school's track & field team, where he ran the 100 meters in 10.92 seconds and the 200 meters in 22.24 seconds. He was also a member of the 4 × 100 m relay (41.41 s) squad.[4]

Recruiting[edit]

A consensus five-star prospect by all major recruiting services, Peterson was rated as the nation's fifth best overall player by Rivals.com and No. 8 by ESPN. Prior to his senior season, he verbally committed to play for the University of Miami, but continued to look at other schools.[5] By November 2007, Peterson had reopened his recruiting process and acknowledged interest in Georgia, USC, Florida, and LSU.[6] He later dropped Georgia and USC from his list and added Florida State,[7] but eventually announced his decision to attend LSU at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.[8]

College career[edit]

Peterson attended Louisiana State University, where he played for coach Les Miles's LSU Tigers football team from 2008 to 2010.

Freshman year[edit]

One of the most decorated high school players to ever attend LSU, Peterson played 13 games as a true freshman. He started the final four games of season, including the Chick-fil-A Bowl win over Georgia Tech. Peterson finished the season with 41 tackles, one interception, and three pass breakups, while also adding a forced fumble and a quarterback hurry.

Sophomore year[edit]

In his sophomore season, Peterson emerged as one of the top defensive backs in the Southeastern Conference. In a game against standout wide receiver A. J. Green of Georgia,[9] Peterson was able to hold Green to just four catches.[10]

By mid-season, Peterson tied for fourth in the league with seven passes defended, and was named the SEC's "Most Improved Player" by ESPN's Chris Low.[11]

Another highly anticipated match-up occurred when Peterson went against Julio Jones of Alabama.[12] Peterson's LSU Tigers were ranked 9th in the country and traveled to face Nick Saban and the #1 ranked Crimson Tide. The Tigers were down by six points late in the fourth quarter when Peterson stepped in front of a pass from Greg McElroy to Julio Jones for what seemed like an interception. Multiple CBS camera angles showed that Peterson was able to get at least one foot in bounds.[13] However, even after review, the SEC officiating crew called the pass incomplete, saying that Peterson was not able to get any foot in bounds. Alabama would go on to kick a field goal on that drive and won 24–15. The missed interception call quickly became infamous and was debated by many media outlets.[14]

Peterson finished 2009 with 52 tackles. His 43 solo tackles were second on the team behind linebacker Kelvin Sheppard. Peterson returned an interception for a touchdown against Mississippi State, and he returned a blocked field goal against Ole Miss for a touchdown. He was also named a 2009 Second-Team All-American by The Sporting News, a 2009 First-Team All-SEC performer by ESPN, and a 2009 Second-Team All-SEC performer by the AP.[10]

Junior year[edit]

Peterson was named to the preseason watch lists for the Nagurski Award, the Thorpe Award, the Ronnie Lott Award, the Walter Camp Award, and the Chuck Bednarik Award. It was announced during the summer of 2010 that Peterson would begin returning punts and kickoffs due to his size, speed, and athleticism. With this added dimension to his game, and his dominance as a cornerback, Peterson began being mentioned as a dark horse for the 2010 Heisman Trophy award, presented to the best college football player every year.[15] Only one defensive player has ever won the Heisman Trophy, Charles Woodson.[16]

Peterson began his Heisman campaign against North Carolina in the 2010 Chic-fil-a Kickoff. The Tigers won 30–24 and Peterson was terrific.[17] In his debut as a returner, Peterson had a school-record 257 yards returning punts and kickoffs, 244 yards coming in the first half. He returned a punt 87 yards for a touchdown and consistently gave the Tiger's offense good field position. His 257-yard performance ranks second all-time in the SEC behind Mississippi State's Nick Turner and his 266-yard performance. Peterson was named Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance.[18] He was also named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week.[19]

Peterson had two punt returns against Vanderbilt for 8 yards in week two as the Tigers rolled past the Commodores. He also returned two kickoffs for 51 yards, to go along with one tackle.[20]

In week three of the 2010 season, the 2–0 Tigers hosted 1–1 Mississippi State for LSU's first home game of the year. The Tiger defense suffocated Mississippi State's offense and Peterson strengthened his campaign with two acrobatic interceptions for LSU. He also returned one kickoff 39 yards and one punt 2 yards to go along with four solo tackles.[20]

Peterson entertained the home crowd again in week four against Top-25 foe West Virginia. With the game tied 0–0 early in the first quarter, West Virginia went to attempt a mid-range field goal and Peterson was able to leap from behind the line of scrimmage and block the kick. The Tiger defense forced West Virginia to punt later in the half. Peterson fielded the punt on his own 40-yard line and raced 60-yards up the middle of the field for a touchdown and a 17–0 LSU lead. Peterson struck the Heisman pose in the North end zone of Tiger Stadium, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Peterson was almost single-handedly responsible for 10 points in the game that ended with LSU winning 20–14. The national sports media began comparing Peterson to Woodson, who actually had worse statistics than Peterson through his first four games during his Heisman winning season.[21] Peterson was again named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week.[22] He also recorded 1 solo tackle.[20]

Week five saw the LSU Tigers take on the Tennessee Volunteers. Peterson and the LSU defense limited Tennessee to 217 yards of offense and the Tigers won 16–14.[23] Peterson recorded 1 solo tackle and 3 assisted tackles. He had 3 punt returns for 30 yards and 3 kickoff returns for 64 yards. The LSU Tigers improved to 5–0 and 3–0 in the SEC with the victory over the Volunteers.

Peterson's efforts helped the Tigers to a No. 12 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 as well as a No. 9 ranking in the USA Today Coaches Poll Top 25.[24] Through week 5 of the 2010 season, he was 3rd in Division 1-A in punt return average at 23.6 yards per attempt (12 for 283), 1st in punt return touchdowns with 2, and 22nd in kickoff return average at 28.2 yards per attempt. Peterson was also tied for 30th in the country with two interceptions.[25] He was in the top five of most straw polls regarding the 2010 Heisman Trophy.[26] In an effort to jumpstart the struggling offense for the Tigers, Peterson practiced as a wide receiver and a running back on offense. Following the season, he was a first-team All-SEC selection, and was recognized as a unanimous first-team All-American.[27]

Professional career[edit]

Coming out of LSU in 2011, Peterson was a projected first round pick by NFL draft experts and scouts. He was a consensus top five pick and was thought to be the best player in the draft by multiple analysts.[28] Peterson attended the NFL combine and completed all of the required combine drills. On March 14, 2011, he participated at LSU's pro day and opted to stand on his combine numbers and only perform positional drills for scouts and team representatives. Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin, Carolina Panthers' head coach Ron Rivera, and New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton were among the team representatives that attended LSU's pro day to scout Peterson, Kelvin Sheppard, Drake Nevis, Joseph Barksdale, Stevan Ridley, Lazarius Levingston, Terrence Toliver, and multiple others.[29] He was ranked the top cornerback prospect in the draft by NFL analyst Mike Mayock, NFLDraftScout.com, Foxsports analyst Brian Billick, and Sports Illustrated.[30][31][32]

The Arizona Cardinals selected Peterson in the first round (5th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He was the first cornerback selected.

2011[edit]

On July 30, 2011, the Arizona Cardinals signed Peterson to a fully guaranteed four-year, $18.42 million contract that included a signing bonus of $11.90 million.[34][35]

On August 27, 2011, Peterson intercepted a pass from Philip Rivers and returned it for a touchdown on his first play in a preseason game against the San Diego Chargers.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt named Peterson the starting cornerback, alongside Greg Toler, to begin his rookie season. He started the Arizona Cardinals' season-opener against the Carolina Panthers and scored his first career touchdown after returning a punt for an 89-yards in the fourth quarter to win the game 28-21. Peterson also recorded five solo tackles during the game. The following week, he recorded a season-high eight combined tackles as the Cardinals lost 21-22 to the Washington Redskins. On September 25, 2011, Peterson made one tackle, defended a pass, and made his first career interception, picking off a pass from Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Tarvaris Jackson during a 10-13 loss.[36]

On November 6, 2011, during the overtime period, Peterson fielded a punt at the one-yard line, evaded several would-be tacklers, and returned it for the 99-yard touchdown in a 19-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams. He also intercepted a flea-flicker pass from Sam Bradford intended for Brandon Lloyd an recorded three tackles and three pass deflections. In Week 14, he led the Cardinals with five solo tackles and made the first sack of his career on San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Alex Smith during 21-19 victory for the Cardinals.[37]

He tied the single-season record for punt return touchdowns with his fourth, accomplishing the feat against St. Louis on November 27.[38] He became the only player in NFL history with four punt-return touchdowns of at least 80 yards in a single season. He finished his rookie season with a sack, 64 combined tackles (59 solo), two interceptions, 13 passes defended, and two fumble recoveries in 16 games and 16 starts. He also produced a rookie record 699 return yards for four touchdowns on 44 punt returns.

Peterson was selected as a kick returner to the 2012 Pro Bowl and was the only rookie to be selected to the 2011 All-Pro First Team.

2012[edit]

He returned as the starting cornerback, opposite William Gay, to begin the 2012 season. On September 16, 2012, Peterson had one carry for 17-yards, three combined tackles, a pass deflection, and intercepted Tom Brady in a 20-18 victory over the New England Patriots. On December 16, 2012, he recorded a season-high seven combined tackles and intercepted Detroit Lions' quarterback Matt Stafford in a 38-10 victory. The interception marked his seventh of the season.[39]

Peterson started all 16 games making 55 tackles with seven interceptions, 17 passes defended, and a NFL-leading five fumble recoveries. He also had 51 punt returns producing 426 return yards, three receptions for 11 receiving yards, and two carries for 11 rushing yards. On December 26, 2012, it was announced that Peterson was voted to the 2013 Pro Bowl as a cornerback.

2013[edit]

The Arizona Cardinals' new head coach Bruce Arians named Peterson the starting cornerback, opposite Jerraud Powers, to begin the 2013 season.[40]

On September 16, 2013, Peterson caught one pass for 17-yards, threw a 17-yard pass to Kerry Taylor, and recorded four solo tackles during a 25-21 win against the Detroit Lions. This made him the first defender to catch and complete a pass in the same game since the 1970 merger. On September 29, 2013, he recorded two solo tackles and intercepted two passes from Tampa Bay Buccaneers' quarterback Mike Glennon during a 13-10 victory.[41] It was the first game of Peterson's career with multiple interceptions. In Week 14, Peterson collected a season-high seven combined tackles in a 37-34 victory over the Tennessee Titans.[42]Although the Cardinals finished with a 10-6 record in their first year under Bruce Arians, they finished third in their division and did not qualify for a playoff berth.

Peterson started all 16 games in 2013 and made 42 combined tackles (40 solo), three interceptions, 13 pass deflections, and two fumble recoveries. He also returned 33 punts for 198 return yards, had one kickoff return attempt for 18-yards, made six catches for 54 receiving yards, and had four carries for 21-yards. He was selected for the 2014 Pro Bowl as a cornerback, marking the third of his career.

2014[edit]

On July 29, 2014, the Arizona Cardinals signed Peterson to a five-year, $70 million contract extension with $48 million guaranteed and a $15.3 million signing bonus.[43]

He began the season as the Arizona Cardinals' starting cornerback, opposite Antonio Cromartie, and no longer had to handle return duties due to the arrival of Ted Ginn Jr. On November 9, 2014, he made two solo tackles and intercepted two passes from St. Louis Rams' quarterback Austin Davis during a 31-14 vcitory. He returned one interception for a 30-yard touchdown, marling the first defensive touchdown of his career.[44] On December 7, 2014, Peterson recorded a season-high eight combined tackles and sacked Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback Alex Smith in a 17-14 victory. He finished the 2014 season with 50 combined tackles (43 solo), eight pass deflections, three interceptions, a forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries in 16 games and 16 starts. He was selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a cornerback, marking his fourth straight appearance.

The Arizona Cardinals finished with an 11-5 record in 2014 and qualified for a playoff berth. On January 3, 2015, Peterson played in his first career postseason game and recorded two combined tackles during a 16-27 lost to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Wildcard Game.

Shortly after the 2014 NFL season, Peterson announced that he had been diagnosed with diabetes. He stated that this affected his performance in the 2014 season, that he had the disease under control, and was ready for the 2015 season.[45]

2015[edit]

Peterson was named the starting cornerback and was full time punt return duties after the departure of Ted Ginn Jr.[46]

On September 20, 2015, he recorded three solo tackles and intercepted Jay Cutler during a 48-23 win over the Chicago Bears. In Week 5, he collected four combined tackles and intercepted a pass off of Matt Stafford, as the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Detroit Lions 42-17. The following game, he earned a season-high five solo tackles as the Cardinals were defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-25.[42] Although he started all 16 games, Peterson finished with a career low 35 combined tackles (35 solo), eight pass deflections, and made two interceptions.

The Arizona Cardinals finished first in the NFC West with a 13-3 record, receiving a playoff berth, home field advantage, and a first round bye week. After defeating the Green Bay Packers 26-20 in the NFC divisional round, the Cardinals went on the face the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship. Peterson recorded five combined tackles and returns an interception off of Cam Newton 70-yards, as the Cardinals lost 15-49.

He was selected to the 2016 Pro Bowl as a cornerback, marking his fifth staright, and was voted third first-team All-Pro. He was also ranked 18th best player by his fellow NFL players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.[47]
