As fans of any particular athlete or sports team, it’s easy to rely on the same sources for information. What's difficult is realizing how those same sources can be skewed and fed information to fit a certain narrative, sometimes unknowingly. What’s healthy is asking questions of several sources who are on the outside looking in to any particular situation. As is the case far more often than not, NFL league insiders, not specific team insiders, have a wider and less skewed viewpoint of any team’s goings-on.
Which is precisely why on The Freaks with Kenny and Crash, there is a national insider on daily to discuss the local team’s happenings. With the bombshell news of Patrick Peterson testing positive for a performance enhancing substance and a masking agent, The Freaks discussed the issue with not one, but two outside sources for their perspective of just what is going on in the desert.
Listen for the full context, but know also that this story may only get worse before it gets any better for Cardinals fans. The overwhelming theme, from either Sean Salisbury or Benjamin Allbright below, or even Sage Steele, Adam Schefter or Ian Rappoport (heard on The Drive today as well) is that the relationship with the team and Patrick Peterson is not at all good... and while anything is still possible between the two parties, it just may not be worth it for him to continue wearing Cardinal red. The team needs to ask, comeOctober 20, if it is worth it to keep Peterson on the roster while not being a team in contention… and will a contending team, such as the Kansas City Chiefs, come calling for him for an agreeable price.
