Coach says Cardinals will not trade Peterson, despite report
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Embattled first-year coach Steve Wilks emphatically said the Arizona Cardinals are not going to trade star cornerback Patrick Peterson.
Wilks' comment Monday came moments after a report via Twitter that said Peterson had asked the Cardinals to trade him by the Oct. 30 deadline.
"We're not trading Patrick," Wilks said. "That's out of the question."
The tweet by ESPN's Adam Schefter was posted after Peterson had left the Arizona locker room following Monday's practice. The cornerback, a first-round draft pick out of LSU who has made the Pro Bowl in each of his seven NFL seasons, usually speaks to the media on Thursdays.
