Patrick Peterson vows to help Cardinals 'for years to come'
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Three-time All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson has issued a statement vowing to continue to give his all to his team for "years to come," adding "I am an Arizona Cardinal."
Peterson's statement, released through Twitter, is his first comment since an ESPN report said he had asked the Cardinals to trade him by the Oct. 30 deadline.
The statement did not directly address that report but Peterson said he has "been incredibly frustrated with how the season has gone."
Arizona is 1-6 heading into Sunday's home game with San Francisco.
"But my energy is 100 percent focused on being part of the solution & helping us turn this around," Peterson said. "I have always given my all to the Cardinals organization, my teammates and fans. That is what I intend to do for the years to come. I am an Arizona Cardinal and my focus is on this week's game."
