Cardinals: 5 Trade Scenarios for Patrick Peterson

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The worst passing defense in the league right now needs help. They’re the only team in the league allowing more than 325 passing yards per game and have allowed the most passing touchdowns (18) as well.

They need all the help they can get. Which is why it would be foolish of them not to go after Peterson.

They’re still in the playoff hunt at a 3-3 record but deal with the most competitive division in football in the NFC South. Grabbing the Pro Bowl cornerback would propel them to contender territory.

The problem with this is much like a lot of other teams on this list where they will need to create cap space. Not to mention their low amount of draft picks in comparison to the others on here as well.

They can still provide talent from their roster and incentive a pick.

Trade Scenario: Peterson to Tampa Bay for a 2019 first-round pick and Tight End Cameron Brate


  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.
