Patrick Peterson Backtracks On Trade Request, Wants To Stay 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:24 pm

Patrick Peterson now says he wants to remain with the Arizona Cardinals.

It was reported that Peterson requested a trade in mid-October, but the cornerback backtracked just a few days later.

\"I just want to apologize to everybody for asking for that trade in the middle of the season,\" Peterson said. \"I\'m here to stay, baby.\"

He said on Wednesday that he\'ll honor his contract, which goes through the 2020 season.

With how loyal the Cards' players are, I must think there's something to the personnel on the management side that helps the players stay happy in spite of a lack of effort/success building a competitive team around their stars. If I were Fitz or Peterson, it would take a hell of a lot to stay quiet through repeated losing season with big holes on the roster. They've done some great drafting, but their signing and trading have been suspect.
