Your Cardinals and NFL news round-up to start the day.

Making a case for Patrick Peterson as a top five cornerback, Larry Fitzgerald moving on from a frustrating 2012 season, checking in on the mood in the Cardinals new-look locker room and more in today's links.

Cardinals:

Is Patrick Peterson a top five cornerback? Unless I am being flagrantly fooled by that famous so called "Eye Test" you not only have to put Peterson in the top 5 but you might have to consider him for the #1 spot. Yes, spit that Hot Pocket out and grab a seat.

Larry Fitzgerald's 2012 Season Was His 'Most Frustrating'
We all know that Larry Fitzgerald’s 2012 season doesn’t reflect his talent, and we all know that Fitzgerald is mad about how 2012 turned out.

How Are Things Going With the Team?
With a whole new group of players stepping onto the practice field for the Arizona Cardinals, it would be perfectly realistic to expect some bumps in the relationships and development of some players. However, that doesn't appear to be the case for the Cardinals.

Carson Palmer Player Profile
Arizona's offensive line was atrocious in 2012, but the Cardinals' biggest need was quarterback. Palmer, who ranked second in passer rating in 2005 (he posted a spectacular 101.1 passer rating that year), has the potential to be great in Arizona.
