Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson suspended 6 games over PED violation

Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended the first six games of the 2019 season by the National Football League, according to a report by Adam Schefter at ESPN.

Peterson is one of the best cover cornerbacks in the league and deals an instant blow to the beginning of the Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray era.

Peterson is not expected to appeal the suspension, which is expected to be officially announced next week. It is unclear why the ban is for six games, as opposed to the standard four for a first-time offender. The offseason addition of Terrell Suggs alongside Pro Bowler Chandler Jones up front, Haason Reddick on the second level, safety Budda Baker, and free-agent pickups Robert Alford and Tramaine Brock alongside Peterson at corner made a solid base for the Cardinals. He will also be allowed to participate in all Cardinals preseason games and practices.

Peterson, who didn't elaborate on why he failed the test, said he had known about the suspension for months and was relieved it was out in the open so he could begin to move forward.

Sudan's military council head: Suspend talks with protesters for 72 hours
Protesters walk towards the sit-in protest outside the Sudanese military headquarters, in Khartoum, Sudan, Tuesday, May 14, 2019. Protest leader Yousef downplayed the role of the proposed ruling council, insisting Sudan would have a powerful cabinet.

The 28-year-old appeared in all 16 games in 2018 and racked up 54 tackles, 1 sack, two interceptions, a fumble recovery, and 5 pass defenses. That streak will end this year. Peterson was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2011, 2013, and 2015.

Peterson reportedly took his financial losses from this matter very seriously - so seriously, in fact, that he took some offense to actions either by the Cardinals or at least someone within the organization. "I communicated with Patrick".

Peterson will lose $3,882,352 in wages, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

Schefter reported Peterson's suspension will cost him almost $4 million.
