Cardinals: 5 Trade Scenarios for Patrick Peterson

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

1. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs aren’t the same defense without Eric Berry in the defensive backfield. And with Marcus Peters gone after a trade to the Rams, it’s hard seeing opposing offenses fearing this team.

Over the last two seasons, they’ve ranked in the bottom five against the pass. This year they’re even worse than before as they went from fourth-worst to second-worst.

This needs to change as they’re currently the hottest team in the AFC. With an offense like they have, they need a defense to compliment it. And one that gives up as many points and yards as they do isn’t going to help.

That’s why they should make the move for Patrick Peterson before the deadline.

They don’t have the cap space as they’re the lowest amongst all of them this season. But they can make the moves they need to get the talented cornerback. They do have the picks necessary to make the move and can send over value to open the cap space more.

Trade Scenario: Peterson to Kansas City for a 2019 first-round pick, a second-round pick (via Los Angeles Rams), and Wide Receiver Sammy Watkins


  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.
