Report: Patrick Peterson requests trade from Cardinals

Patrick Peterson

Arizona Cardinals standout cornerback Patrick Peterson wants out, according to a report.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that Peterson “desperately” wants out of Arizona and has asked for a trade, but for now, the Cardinals are resisting.

One of the game’s premier defensive backs, Peterson’s availability would certainly shake up the trade market. The seven-time Pro Bowler has consistently won high praise from coaches and remains a shutdown corner in his prime, still just 28 years old.

The Cardinals will understandably try to stand in the way of a trade, and he’s signed through 2020, so the ball is really in their court. At 1-6 and clearly going nowhere, it’s hard to tell if they’d really want to stand pat and risk Peterson growing increasingly disgruntled, especially if someone offers a first-round pick or a similarly large haul for him.
