ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the news Thursday morning, and the team confirmed it later in the day.
Peterson can participate in all offseason workouts and preseason games. He's an eight-time Pro Bowler since being drafted by Arizona in 2011, but his actions dating back to before the 2018 trade deadline, which have been widely publicized, might be tainting his reputation.
He will be eligible to return October 20 at the New York Giants. Standard NFL protocol usually calls for a four-game suspension for first-time offenders, which Peterson is.
Peterson, who didn't elaborate on why he failed the test, said he had known about the suspension for months and was relieved it was out in the open so he could begin to move forward.
"For the most part, our relationship is great", Peterson said.Читайте также: Trump pardons Conrad Black for 2007 fraud conviction in U.S.
At this point in the process, we really don't know the details of what to expect from the Lions offense, but Peterson is arguably the best corner in the league and capable of shutting down half the field. His suspension might be the reason that hasn't happened yet.
Peterson recorded 54 combined tackles, a sack, five passes defensed, and two interceptions through 16 games last season.
Peterson made the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight years in the NFL, making him one of seven defensive players in league history to reach such a benchmark.
The Cardinals have been searching for a cornerback to play opposite Peterson nearly since he came into the league. Had the Cardinals been willing to work with him on a new deal, he believes he could have saved himself $2 million of the almost $4 million he will have to forfeit during his six-game ban.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
