CBS Sports NFL analyst Jason La Canfora believes the Patrick Peterson request for a one-way ticket out of Arizona has taken a brutal turn
It has gone from something of a more cordial conversation to "Hey, this is a total train wreck and I want out of here."
La Canfora was the first to report back in Week Six that dealing Peterson out of Arizona was even a possibility
La Canfora tells Jody Oehler on The Drive that Peterson doesn't believe the Cardinals will be competitive during the rest of his prime
He (Peterson) believes "I'm not going to be good anymore by the time you're good again, if you get good again."
The NFL insider says P2 is no longer a part of what he signed up for when signed his 5-year, 70-million-dollar extension.
He (Peterson) thought he was part of something with Tony Jefferson, Calais Campbell and Honey Badger (Tyrann Mathieu). A dominate defense. It has snowballed and got worse by the week.
La Canfora says the Cards were the last to know the franchise was due for a full rebuild
I think the cycle was over before they were able to concede it was over.
Despite Cardinals president Michael Bidwill and head coach Steve Wilks saying a trade of Patrick Peterson is "not happening," La Canfora believes it's inevitable.
Everybody has a price. Babe Ruth was traded, wasn't he. There are very few untradable commodities in the NFL. I think you do a disservice to your franchise by just saying "no" out of turn to teams.
La Canfora believes Peterson would command a great return to the Cardinals if dealt
Probably a one (first round draft pick) and a two (second round draft pick). Maybe a one, three and a player.
