Could Patrick Peterson be dealt after his suspension? Here is a trade idea

Patrick Peterson needs a change of scenery, and the Jacksonville Jaguars makes too much sense, but for what?

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?
