Arizona’s Patrick Peterson relishes being highest-paid CB

Thu., July 31, 2014, midnight

Patrick Peterson is the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. Just ask him. Not only did he tweet out the terms of his new contract with the Arizona Cardinals – five years, $70 million, $48 million guaranteed – he referred to himself as the highest-paid at his position at least five times in the news conference announcing the new deal Wednesday. Peterson made sure everyone knew his contract was bigger than that of Seattle’s Richard Sherman, who signed a four-year, $56 million contract – $40 million guaranteed – earlier this year. Peterson rubbed it in with a tweet that said “You mad bro!!!” Sherman responded with a close-up photo of his Super Bowl championship ring and said, “Can’t ever be too mad.” “I don’t have any beef with Richard,” Peterson said. “I’m having fun.” –AP
