Another saga involving Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson on Tuesday
So what was it this time Patrick Peterson? Did the Arizona Cardinals hurt your feelings? Word is someone said something negative about you. So now you want out, again?
In not so many words Peterson hinted at that suggestion on Tuesday. He removed mention of the Cardinals in his twitter bio. He also missed team workouts in Tempe.
It was suggested that Peterson didn’t miss workouts due to any squabble or contract issue with the Cardinals and that it was excused. That in itself is no cause for alarm.
When you take Cardinals out of your bio, is it a negotiating tactic or just pettiness? Could be a little of both.
So many took to social media on Tuesday wondering if Peterson now wants a trade again. He hasn’t come out and said anything about that.
You’ll remember he pulled this stunt during the season and then apologized for it. Here’s the thing, fans love what he does on the field. They used to love him off the field too.
He’s a character no doubt. When things are going good, all smiles and love. When things might not go his way, he takes things to these extremes it seems.
Just stop. Stop playing games Pete. If you are unhappy in Arizona, well, you have a contract. Don’t be a whiner. Don’t be a Le’Veon Bell or Antonio Brown. You’re better than that, at least we all used to believe so.
There is likely some exaggerating and over reaction to all of this too. The timing is very curious though with the NFL Draft now just 48 hours away.
Our other expert Avery Duncan talked about trade possibilities today with Peterson. He can certainly still bring back value but when you are putting yourself out there as a difficult personality, it can be tough.
Enough of the clown show. Just go about your business and help these young guys around you grow into better players like you.
