Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Cardinals CB Peterson will not hold out

The SportsXchange

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he will not skip minicamp or training camp in a contract holdout.

Concerns over his attendance arose of Peterson's absence for voluntary workouts, but he said he chose to spend time with his wife -- a medical school student -- rather than attend OTAs.

"Like I told you guys, I won't hold out so we got that done," Peterson said. "I will be there ... be there full tilt ready to roll, taking that final step into camp."

Peterson, under contract through 2015 after Arizona picked up his player option for his fifth season, is in line for a huge raise with the market set by several significant deals this offseason.

Darrelle Revis signed a one-year, $12 million deal with the New England Patriots -- not including a $20 million team option for 2015 -- and Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks received a four-year, $56 million contract last month.
