NFL Rumors: Arizona Cardinals will be Forced to Trade Out the Cornerback Patrick Peterson

NFL Arizona Cardinals Trade Cornerback Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson will be clear to play in the NFL games from next week but it doesn’t mean that the Arizona Cardinals will have him back. The star cornerback was out from the first six weeks due to a suspension from NFL for using enhancing drugs. Leaving the matter aside, Peterson is an elite corner that will be useful in the defense side of any NFL team.

It is why around six to seven teams have asked the Cardinals for Peterson trade deal but they have been refusing every offer. However, they won’t be able to hold him for much longer if Peterson himself decides to leave. As per the reports, three teams are interested in Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals will be forced to trade the CB before the October 29 trade deadline.

The Arizona Cardinals won’t trade Peterson as they need him right now as they are at 2-3-1 in the 2019 NFL season. They would want him to play in the Cardinals vs Giants Week 7 game from their side. It doesn’t mean that the Cardinals won’t even listen to the trade offers for Peterson given how a good package deal can elevate their team.

Kyler Murry needs strong supportive players and trading out Peterson can get them the required returns in exchange. Further, Patrick Peterson is returning after a PED suspension and carries a two-year contract with around $23 million. It would be wise of the Cardinals if they trade him out before October 29 and save their cap space for the next NFL season.
