Not sure what you will be dressed like on Halloween, but I can tell you what All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson won’t be if he gets his way—a Cardinal.
Because Peterson told Arizona he would like to be traded by the October 30 trade deadline saying he feels as if the situation in the desert is deteriorating and continues to reaffirm to others that he “desperately” wants out.
But the Cardinals continue to insist that they won’t trade him.
“We’re not trading Patrick,” Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said yesterday. “That’s out of the question.”
Wilks said he would talk to Peterson later Monday, but to this point Wilks said that Peterson “hasn’t expressed to me” a desire to be traded.
“I’m not going to indulge in speculation,” Wilks said. “I’m going to sit down and talk to Patrick. Patrick is a captain. He’s well respected around here. He’s well respected throughout the league. Yes, are we in a difficult situation? Yeah, we are. 1-6. Nobody feels great about where we are right now. It’s about trying to turn the corner and make things happen so we can make sure that we get this thing on track. Starting with myself and everybody else in that locker room. That’s what we need to be talking about.”
Peterson is in the midst of a five-year, $70-million contract and won’t become an unrestricted free agent until 2021.
And really, who knows if the Cards will have a second win by then.
