Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is falling behind in the voting to start at cornerback for the NFL Pro Bowl next January in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The LSU Product is a two-time Pro Bowler. He currently trails Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks and New England's Aqib Talib. The exact number of votes that Peterson has received was not released but Sherman has tallied 367,076 votes to lead all at his position.

The NFL has done away with the AFC-NFC format, so once the players are chosen, honorary captains Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will pick the Pro Bowl teams. The Pro Bowl will be played on January 26, a week before the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl will be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ in February.

So far this season, Peterson leads the team with three interceptions and has added 31 tackles. He is normally matched up with the opposing team's top receiver and, as usual, has done a fine job overall this season. Expect Peterson to play in his third straight Pro Bowl in three years in the league - unless the Cards make it to the Super Bowl of course.

Peterson would surely make that trade any time.
