Arizona Cardinals Nab DT Corey Peters From Atlanta Falcons


He will come to the Arizona Cardinals from the Atlanta Falcons along with linebacker Sean Weatherspoon

If you were questioning if the Arizona Cardinals were going to address the defensive line in free agency, I have your answer.  Yes.  The Cardinals have nabbed defensive tackle Corey Peters and will reportedly sign him to a contract worth about $3 million.

Peters will come to the Cardinals from the Atlanta Falcons along with linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.  He was mainly a backup in 2014.  He played in 15 games but started only two.  He had 15 tackles and two sacks.  The move probably means goodbye to free agent defensive tackle Dan Williams.

Peters was a full-time starter in 2013, starting in all 15 games he played in.  He had career highs in tackles with 46 and sacks with five.  This is another move that came out of nowhere but apparently Peters has told people he is moving to Arizona.

You’ll have to pardon me if I am stunned by the move even though Peters is coming off a less productive season but this is something we rarely see in Arizona.  You have a team that has a little bit of money to spend and they are spending it wisely so far in my estimation.  They are taking care of needs on the defensive line, offensive line, and linebacker.  It should be interesting to see what the Cardinals do with running back because you can be sure they are addressing that somehow.

I almost feel like I shouldn’t go to sleep this evening, I’m afraid I’ll miss something.  However I think tomorrow becomes even crazier once contracts can actually be signed.  I think time will tell weather Peters is an upgrade from the departed or not but right now it surely isn’t any worse.
