Cardinals: 5 Trade Scenarios for Patrick Peterson

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

5. Philadelphia Eagles

The defending Super Bowl champs have struggled in the secondary for some time. After being ranked 17th in defending the pass last year, as they’ve dropped to 24th so far in their 2018 campaign.

A lot of this can be attributed to the defensive backs having issues. Jalen Mills has been problematic at times this season. And Sidney Jones and Ronald Darby are unable to take up their roles as number one and two cornerbacks in their own rights. Not to mention Malcolm Jenkins is north of 30 and Rodney McLeod is underperforming as well.

They’re in desperate need of a talented cornerback like Peterson to bolster this team and get them out of their Super Bowl hangover. Luckily enough, they have the draft picks to get the Cardinals defensive back, as well as players to give Arizona.

The Eagles are projected to draft 13th overall in the upcoming draft and even use an additional pick to provide more depth to Arizona’s draft.

Remember that Arizona is unwilling to give him away anytime soon.

Trade Scenario: Eagles get Peterson in exchange for a 2019 first-round pick and 2020 fourth-round pick

  1. So trade him to teams that will most likely make the playoffs or have low draft picks if they don’t manage to sneak into the playoffs? The guy has a couple of years of below market value on his contract and he’s an All-Pro. Sure. Trade him to a team that’ll get the #32 pick in the draft. Wow. Cleveland, Tennessee, Indy, Houston…not San Fran lol…NYJ. Those are the teams with the most cap space left AND aren’t really going to make a whole lot of noise. CLE or NYJ would be my teams of choice seeing as they’re not making a lot of noise this year, have a ton of cap space, good QBs, and are on the rise. Win for AZ in that it’ll be good picks coming back, win for the trading team in that it gets Peterson, and win for Peterson in that he gets his trade request fulfilled.

    On second thought…keep him until next year just before the draft. If he’s still wanting out, trade with a team after you know their draft slot. They’d still get two more seasons of Peterson under a great contract and AZ will know where they’re picking.
