Posted December 27, 2012 on AP on Fox
Arizona's Patrick Peterson is headed to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his two seasons in the NFL. This one, he said, means more because he has been chosen as a cornerback. Last year, as a rookie, he made the Pro Bowl as a punt returner. Patrick, as confident as they come in pro football, says he expected the selection and considers it a reward for the hard work he has done since the Cardinals made him the No. 5 pick overall in the 2011 draft. Peterson is Arizona's only Pro Bowl selection. Inside linebacker Daryl Washington and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald were chosen as alternates. Washington says he is disappointed, while Fitzgerald says he is surprised.

Darnell Dockett was in need of some serious loving on Christmas

It has been a long and grueling season for Darnell Dockett and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals. For many of the team’s players, Christmas likely served as a welcome distraction from a season in which they have lost 10 out of their last 11 games.

Beanie Wells Using Week 17 as Audition

Arizona running back Beanie Wells is using next week's game against San Francisco as an "audition for a job somewhere else."Fantasy Spin:It's pretty clear Wells wants out after another frustrating season for the listless Cardinals. Wells has been a fantasy disappointment this season (234 yards, five TD in eight games) but perhaps playing for a new team will rejuvenate him.
