The Cardinals have agreed to sign nose tackle Corey Peters to a three-year extension, according to a team announcement. The deal is worth an average of $4MM per year, Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM (on Twitter) hears. Of course, the devil is in the details and we’ll know more about the deal once the cash flow and guarantees are known.
Peters has struggled with injuries in his time in Arizona, but he’s been quite valuable when on the field. The veteran missed the entire 2015 season after signing a three-year, $9MM deal with the Cards in the previous offseason. He appeared in all but one of Arizona’s games last year, but this season a high ankle sprain has held him out of the last two games.
Peters, 30 in June, had the second-most snaps among Cardinals defensive lineman this season at the time of his injury in November. To date, he has a career high 80. 1 overall score on Pro Football Focus. He currently ranks 47th out of 119 qualified interior defenders.
In his two years with the Cardinals, Peters has recorded 38 tackles, a safety, and a sack.
