Corey Peters, DT, Arizona Cardinals

All of the defensive tackles on the Cardinals are roughly the same skill level. Between Domata Peko, Corey Peters, and Trevon Coley, the Cardinals have the personnel to replace Peters if they didn’t want to sign him back this offseason.

Peters had 15 tackles, two sacks, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and one pass defended. Those aren’t super impressive, but Peters did only play in nine games. If he wasn’t to go down with a knee injury, Peters would have finished with better stats.

The Saints, on the other hand, have a defensive tackle that is set to make a huge amount of money. Sheldon Rankins has been a good tackle for the team, but with his market value shooting up to $11.3 million per year on a $45 million contract.

The Saints should let Rankins walk. He only had 20 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four tackles for a loss, and one pass defended in twelve games. The Saints can move forward for less money with Corey Peters, David Onyemata, and Shy Tuttle.

Offer: 2-years, $6.5 million

Saints’ Savings: $6.55 million per year
