Patrick Peterson has been suspended the first six games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 28-year-old cornerback has been a solid player and an 8x Pro Bowler, but he is a head case as well. Last year, he demanded a trade from the Cardinals but was never dealt. This year, he will start the season off with a six-game suspension.
While Peterson has super reliable in his career starting all 16 regular-season games since he was drafted fifth overall in 2011, that should help the Cardinals land a better pick or player.
I came up with this trade idea, and I think they could get it. Trade Peterson to the Jaguars in exchange for Jalen Ramsey and a swap of 5th rounders. The Jaguars rid themselves of Ramsey and trade a Pro Bowl cornerback for a Pro Bowl cornerback. The Cardinals land a younger player who could use a change of scenery. Peterson lands on a team that could compete right now as he is not getting any younger.
Peterson has 387 total tackles to go along with 23 intercepted passes, and I feel he would be a perfect fit for the Jaguars. What do you think?
