    Cool. Let’s extend him. If not, put him through the franchise tag ringer. Either way, we have 4 years of control over him

    Remember how pissy and whiny he has been the past year or so? Imagine the franchise tag shuffle. He will be insufferable.

    You're not wrong though although if a trade offer comes along that is too good to pass up I am pulling the trigger. He is on the downside of his career, only a matter of time before it starts to show itself.

    I don’t care how emotional he is. He’s an elite corner who’s in his prime (not downside). I’m also not a fan of trading known talent for potential; even if it’s for a first rounder and something else.

    Even if we improved enough to make the playoffs, Peterson would go play for a team like the Dolphins if they gave him $1 more. Dude has proven to be a "me first" guy

    What's too good of an offer to pass up? I don't see ARZ getting offered more than one mid to late 1st round pick for him, not that I'm saying because that's all he's worth but other than the Mack trade, teams aren't giving up multiple 1st rounders for players these days. Only way teams are paying premiums are to move up in the draft, ironically for potential over established players.

    Mgt had better be hard-assed.

    Talk is cheap. PP will still have to prove it on the field. If the Cards feel he can still bring it, they should by all means keep him. But if they're not sure, they should be open to trading him for equal or higher value.

    Having followed pro football for 70 some odd years, it's been my experience that, once a dude goes public with anything less than being 100% team-oriented, he never gets his full mojo back.

    We would know it when we see it. There are teams who could pay a premium for PPed given people around this board are saying how great he is (personally I believe he is a great player and I don't use the term great often)

    I am not saying they should be shopping him.

    Behind you
    Some of you may recall the day A. Williams took off...and the immediate drop off at the CB position.
    Teams simply picked a WR or the weak corner and they marched down the field at will....ala Justin Bethal.
    For the past years PP has locked down the other teams #1 WR game in and game out...and to see some people (not smart) thinking the Cards can walk away from PP and replace him like they're replacing Logan Thomas shows the ignorance of some.
    PP is an amazing CB...and the second the Cardinals say his's available 31 other teams will be on the phone.
    Anyone and I mean anyone on this board knocking PP's ability and what he's done at the CB position and his next 4 year potential is clueless about football.
    If the Cards can get a discount by extending him now for 2-3 years....you do it.
    Re: PP upset and wanting to be traded....how in the world could you blame him? He is/was an all pro All NFL 1st team CB on the worst team in the NFL year after year....he wants to play in playoff games....be in competitive games and the Cardinals simply were not even competitive no matter what he did.
    Shoot last year Wilks had PP locked in on one side having to take down RB's play after play...AND HE GOT DOWN AND DIRTY....he tackled hard and his jerseys were jacked up at half time....and he never stopped.....go rewatch the Rams game in LA....he played every play like it was playoff football even when the Cards were down by 2,000 points....he fought to get a INT in the 4th...even after being on the field for 85% of the game due to the offense being unable to get 1 first down in the game.
    Dude has been incredible
    Anyone talking junk about PP isn't football smart...simply an over emotional fan who doesn't know X's and O's.

    Correction, he has yet to shown he is on his downside yet, you are simply using a generic measuring stick for approaching thirty. Some guys do not start digressing till their mid thirties. Granted that is a few but then again there are only a few which are talented like Peterson :)

    True, but after being spoiled by guys over the years like Aeneas Williams, Fitz, A-Dub, etc. I guess I expect a bit more from guys that are given leadership roles. He's come across as a spoiled brat who doesn't handle adversity well. He's been one of my favorites for years, I even have his jersey, but the "snakes in the grass" BS was the last straw that turned me off from him completely. I can't defend this crap anymore

    I look at him as an elite talent in the mode of Aeneas Williams, Deon Sanders and Darrell Green... so the odds are in my favor lol

    I rarely see eye to eye with you, but I have to give credit where credit is due. This guy is one of the most talented Cardinals to ever play in Arizona. Character-wise, there's a misstep or two, but really minimally. He's also a leader on the team.

    Considering we haven't had a successful draft pick outside of Budda Baker since 2015, let's pay one of the few we have left.
