It appears the Cardinals and Patrick Peterson's agent, Joel Segal, will have a contract template to work with when they start serious negotiations this off-season.

Jason La Canfora of CBSsports.com (@JasonLaCanfora) reported on Monday that the Seahawks were "zeroing in" on a new contract with cornerback Richard Sherman and hoped to have it completed before the draft, May 8-10.

Sherman and Peterson were drafted in 2011, Sherman in the fifth round and Peterson in the first. They are regarded as two of the better young cornerbacks in the NFL, perhaps the two best.
