CB Patrick Peterson Thinks Kirk Cousins and the Cardinals is a Perfect Fit

The Cardinals need a quarterback and Kirk Cousins is going to hit the market in March. To Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, it’s a perfect match, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

“We’ve got everything he would need for a quarterback to be successful,” Peterson said on Thursday while making the rounds at radio row in the Super Bowl LII media center. “We’ve got a pretty solid defense, talent all across the board on offense, nice running game that can complement him. He’s a damn good quarterback, he just needs pieces to help him be successful.”

Earlier this week, the Chiefs and Redskins agreed to a trade that would send quarterback Alex Smith from Kansas City to Washington. Smith will sign a four-year deal, and Cousins, the Redskins starter, will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time.

“He can make every throw that you need a quarterback to make,” Peterson said.

Peterson has played against Cousins three times and intercepted a pass in the Cardinals’ victory in 2016.

Acquiring Cousins won’t be cheap. He’s expected to command a deal worth at least $25 million a year.

“Yeah, that’s tough but we’ll see what happens,” Peterson said.
