Arizona’s eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson is being suspended the first eight games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, league sources told ESPN.

Bucs do not play Arizona until Game 10, so he will be back by then.
And he just dropped his appeal, so he will be suspended 6 games total.
He and the team knew about the failed drug test way before the news broke it. This is DEFINITELY why he wasn’t traded.
What we have been reading about him has been typical half-assed reporting. We get a piece of the situation to stir up talk, but as we see there is a huge issue that will prevent this player from going anywhere. Today’s “journalism” is of a quality only for tatterdemalions. Thanks
And apparently he’s pissed at the team for not restructuring his contract to minimize his loss of $$. He wanted money shifted to a bonus and off of annual salary so his per game loss would be less and they unsurprisingly said hell no. Why would they pay him for the missed time? Apparently that’s why he wanted to be traded in the first place to a team that would pay him more. What a knucklehead.
Some #Bucs fans are now eyeing Patrick Peterson. I say, hold your horses. Why would you take a player who had two steady years of declining grades before he started juicing, then got better while juicing? Thanks, but no thanks. Lets see how he plays without cheating first.
