Arizona Cardinals re-sign Kevin Peterson to one-year deal

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

In an offseason full of moves, the one position group that has been mostly stagnant was the defensive backs.

It makes sense, as the team picked up Robert Alford last season and found two good depth corners in Chris Jones and Kevin Peterson.

Today, they made sure Peterson would be back in the fold at least during the offseason, as the team re-signed the cornerback to a one-year deal.

From the team:

Peterson (5-11, 185) played in 14 games (three starts) last season with the Cardinals and had 16 tackles, two passes defensed and six special tackles after joining the team off waivers from the Rams on September 1. He has played 20 games in his NFL career with both the Cardinals and Rams after entering the league with Chicago as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016 from Oklahoma State.

The 26-year old Peterson played in seven games with the Rams in 2017 before missing the 2018 season on injured reserve. In his career, Peterson has 26 tackles, two interceptions and seven special teams tackles.

Welcome back to the team, Kevin and good luck this offseason.

In a corresponding move, the team released Andre Chachere.
