To say 2019 was a miserable season for Peterson would be an understatement. Anything he contributes in 2020 could likely be construed as an improvement.
However, despite all that went on last season in Peterson’s world, he is still here. The Cardinals have stuck by him despite his numerous actions that said he didn’t want to be here anymore.
Peterson missed the first six games due to suspension last year. He came out of the gates strong but quickly crawled under a rock.
At times he looked lethargic and didn’t have a care in the world. He found himself more out of position at times than you’d see rookie undrafted free agents doing so.
The fact is, he basically can do nothing but improve. He has seemed to carry the right attitude in the offseason, said all the right things.
With what the Cardinals have built so far with their offense and now what is likely to be an improved defense, why wouldn’t he want to be a part of it? He still can produce some great seasons before he rides off into the sunset career-wise.
It all starts this year. We’re not saying he won’t make mistakes, but something says he’s ready to remind us of the Peterson the Cardinals drafted.
