It's too early to know what will come this drama Peterson and the Cardinals, but coach Steve Wilks addressed the issue at his news conference Monday.
If the Cardinals are rebuilding, fans will have to be patient.
Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson reportedly has requested a trade.
Man arrested following attempted theft of Magna Carta from Salisbury Cathedral
The parchment, one of only four original copies still surviving, was not damaged in the incident, they added. A 45-year-old man was arrested Thursday for trying to steal the Magna Carta from the city's famed cathedral.
Then to add more intrigue to this latest news, Bryant McFadden, who is a former National Football League cornerback and Peterson's cousin reported on Monday that the Eagles, Saints, and New England Patriots are all interested in trading for the Pro Bowl cornerback. Even though this hypothetical secondary combination sounds great, one does wonder what it would take to get Peterson?
Peterson has recorded 35 tackles, a sack, and two interceptions in seven games this season.
Peterson is in the third year of a five-year, $70m contract and is due about $6.5m over the remainder of the season. If he were traded this year, the team acquiring Peterson would pay the balance of his salary for this year, which would be 9/17 of $11 million, or about $5.8 million. Would the Dallas Cowboys try to add him?
If the Steelers still view this team as a Super Bowl contender, is a first-round pick too much to pay if Peterson is the guy who puts the defense over the top?
