Biography

NoteCARDS:

  • The Cardinals first-round selection and the fifth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Peterson was the first CB taken. Signed a five-year extension on 7/29/14 that will keep him under contract through the 2020 season.
  • Five-time team captain (2013, 2015-18) has totaled 426 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks, 25 INTs (one returned for a TD), 107 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 138 games (all starts) during his first nine NFL seasons. Only six players in Cardinals history had more INTs than Peterson had in his first nine seasons (25). 
  • Started all 128 games during his first eight NFL seasons, becoming the first Cardinal since at least the 1970 NFL-AFL merger to start 100+ consecutive games to begin his career.
  • In April of 2020, named to the 2010-19 All-Decade Team by the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 48-member selection committee.
  • Voted to the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight NFL seasons – seven times at CB (2012-18) and once as a kick returner (2011). Joined Hall of Famers Jim Brown and Barry Sanders as the only players in NFL history to be chosen to eight Pro Bowls before their 29th birthday. Peterson is the only player in team history selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight NFL seasons, and his eight consecutive Pro Bowl selections are a franchise record.
  • Earned first-team All-Pro honors three times with two selections at CB (2013, 2015) and one as a kick returner (2011).
  • Named NFC Defensive Player of the Week three times (Week 15, 2019; Week 10, 2014; Week 4, 2013), NFC Special Teams Player of the Week twice (Week 9, 2011; Week 12, 2011) and Special Teams Player of the Month once (November 2011).
  • Became the first NFL defender since at least the 1970 NFL-AFL merger to have a reception and a completion in the same game vs. Det (9/15/13). Peterson's gloves and the football used on the pass completion were sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH.
  • Led the NFL in punt return yards (699) and TDs (four) in 2011 while becoming the first player in NFL history with four punt return TDs of 80+ yards (99, 89, 82 and 80) in a single season. Became just the fourth player in NFL history - and second rookie (Jack Christiansen, 1951) - with four punt return TDs in a single season
  • Broke the NFL rookie record for the most punt return yards previously set by Pittsburgh's Louis Lipps (656 in 1984) with 699, which ranks as the second-highest single-season total in NFL history behind Green Bay's Desmond Howard (875 in 1996).
