Cardinals Listening to Trade Calls for Patrick Peterson

Tyler Jaggi

The Arizona Cardinals star cornerback Patrick Peterson is scheduled to return from his six-game suspension next Sunday against the New York Giants, but the team may have several options to trade him per Adam Schefter. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter says 

"in recent weeks, the Cardinals have gotten calls from at least three teams interested in trying to trade for Peterson, a league source told ESPN."

Over the past year, six or seven teams have inquired about Peterson, but the Cardinals have told all those teams -- in no uncertain terms -- that they are not interested in trading the eight-time Pro Bowler, according to sources. Still, it hasn't stopped teams from checking in to see whether they can pry loose Peterson, who asked for a trade last season. With the Oct. 29 trade deadline approaching, Arizona continues to insist it won't deal Peterson.

The shutdown corner's name was brought up in trade speculation before his suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and they are starting up again. This isn't the first time Peterson's name been rumor around the trade deadlines. Last October, Adam Schefter said Peterson requested a trade with the Cardinals which never happens.  

Patrick Peterson later acknowledged on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he previously sought a change of scenery but noted that had been a product of frustration saying:

So it was just a lot of whirlwind going on last year, and I was just frustrated. I love Arizona. I definitely want to be there. Just that time of the year, last year, like I said, it was just very, very tough to deal with. But as being one of the leaders, I definitely felt it shouldn't have gone that way. But people upstairs can trade players and try to shop players around whenever they need to. So I didn't see what was wrong with me asking for a trade at the time. So it kind of works both ways. But right now I'm in a very, very happy place with the team. All of this is behind us right now, obviously. And something new just came up with me being suspended the first six games. But you know, I’m a man. I have to lick my wounds and be able to move forward from all of this. I have moved forward, and I’m ready to see what the future has for me.

Adam Schefter continued to say,

With the Oct. 29 trade deadline approaching, Arizona continues to insist it won't deal Peterson.

 With Arizona's playoff chancing slimming as the weeks go on being in arguably the toughest division in football. The Cardinals currently sit in 4th place in the NFC West behind the undefeated 49ers, the (4-1) Seattle Seahawks and the 2018 NFC champion LA Rams. Will very tough for Cardinals to fight their way out of the bottom of that division in 2019. 

Will Arizona find a trade offer so beneficial that Cardinals couldn't refuse it. With another All-Pro cornerback trade rumors surrounding Jaguars Jalen Ramsey, could teams view P8-time probowler as a cheaper alternative? 

The Jaguars have already rejected an offer of two first-round picks for Ramsey. Cardinals might be willing to settle for less compensation than what Jaguars are willing to give up for Ramsey due to age. It's unclear if Patrick Peterson will play a game with the Cardinals this season or will be suited up with a new team as the October 29th trade deadline approaches.

As they should.. If they are offered a first rounder and then an additional 5th or 6th rounder I say do that 100%.

I'd like to know what type of offers they are getting

I'd personally prefer to keep P2, but if we were offered 2 first round picks by a team in win-now mode, it'd be a tough decision to evaluate. I suppose it depends what teams are offering, though I hope Patrick Peterson will redeem himself in the final ten games. He's a great guy and a great player.

Thinking back to Feb, P2 made an announcement at The Waste Mgmt Open that he was here to stay. This amount of calls coming in though makes me wonder what other conversations are happening with Pat himself.
