Peterson says he's got 5-year, $70 million deal

TEMPE, AZ (AP) -

Cornerback Patrick Peterson says he has reached agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals, with $48 million guaranteed.

Peterson revealed the terms via twitter Tuesday night. The Cardinals announced the deal a short time later, but did not disclose the terms.

Peterson has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons in the NFL, first as a kick returner then the last two seasons at cornerback, after Arizona made him the No. 5 pick overall out of LSU in 2011.

He had two years left on his original contract after Arizona had picked up its fifth-year option earlier this year.
