Cardinals Won’t Trade Patrick Peterson

The Cardinals will not trade Patrick Peterson. At least, according to GM Steve Keim

We are not trading Patrick Peterson,” Keim said (via Kevin Zimmerman of AZ Sports). “Why trade a player in his prime at one of the hardest positions to find for a maybe or a couple maybes? Love what Pat brings to the locker room, love what he brings to the field.”

Keim appears to be referencing the Jaguars, who recently traded Jalen Ramsey to the Rams for draft capital. Opinions are split on the Jaguars’ decision, but most at least feel that the Jaguars made the best of a rocky situation with their star cornerback.

The Cardinals’ relationship with Peterson has been roughly as rocky. Peterson has clashed on numerous occasions with team brass and his PED suspension this year did not help matters.

Keim might be telling the truth, but he might also be preserving leverage. We’ll find out soon enough – the NFL’s trade deadline is just around the corner.

      Probably Harris from Denver or Burns from the Steelers. I would prefer Howard from the Dolphins or Trufant from the Falcons, but the draft picks cost to get those guys is a little steep.

        Low ball howie will just take another corner off his local car dealership or insurance agency. He doesn’t spend on running back or corner.

    Keim was drinking “ when isn’t he” when he said this. He would be dumber than well “ Steve Keim” if he didn’t at least listen.

    I believe Keim also said the Cardinals wouldn’t trade Rosen so I wouldn’t put much stock in his assurances.
