Corey Peters will be inducted into the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.
The Cardinals’ defensive tackle played collegiately at the University of Kentucky, where he was a second-team All-SEC selection as a senior. Peters was a third-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2010 and signed with Cardinals in free agency prior to the 2015 season.
Peters missed his first year with the team due to a torn Achilles but has since become a key member of the defensive line. The nine-year veteran had 51 tackles and 2½ sacks in 2018. Peters was a co-winner of the Pro Football Writers Association’s Steve Schoenfeld Good Guy Award this past season, which recognizes players who best exemplify professionalism in dealing with the media.
The induction ceremony will be held at the Lexington Opera House in Lexington, Kentucky on June 21. The four other members of the 2019 Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame class are NFL veterans Champ Bailey, Joe Johnson, David Carter and Lou Michaels.
