NFL insider Ian Rapoport tells Jody Oehler on The Drive that Patrick Peterson's trade request from the Arizona Cardinals was as far as dealing the star would go
"He was never getting traded."
Rap Sheet believes the Cardinals would rather renegotiate than relinquish Peterson to another team
"They don't want to trade Patrick Peterson, ever. I think they'd rather pay him than trade him."
Rapoport thinks the trade request could result in the two sides sitting down at the negotiation table this offseason.
"I've got to think that there will be some sort look at potential new contract."
P2 has two seasons remaining on his 5-year, 70-million-dollar extension following 2018. The NFL Trade Deadline is Tuesday October, 30th
The NFL Network insider believes new Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is going to have success based on who hired him, Bruce Arians.
The way he judged talent was great. He thought incredibly high of Leftwich. (Arians) thought he was going to a future head coach."
