The Arizona Cardinals have agreed on a five-year contract extension with Patrick Peterson, a deal the Pro Bowler said Tuesday night is worth $ 70 million with $ 48 million guaranteed, making him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.

The deal will surpass extensions signed recently by the Cleveland Browns’ Joe Haden (five years, $ 68 million) and Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman (four years, $ 56 million).

The team announced the extension without specifying the pay.
