Former Arizona Cardinals, and current Minnesota Vikings, cornerback Patrick Peterson does not believe Kyler Murray will remain with the franchise for the rest of his NFL career.
Now more than a year removed from his tenure with the Arizona Cardinals, current Minnesota Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson recently shared some thoughts on his old team and the drama that has surrounded quarterback Kyler Murray this offseason.
During the latest episode of his podcast “All Things Covered”, Peterson was asked by co-host Bryant McFadden (also a former Cardinals corner) if he thought Murray would remain in Arizona for his entire career.
Peterson quickly responded to McFadden’s question with a simple “no.”
Patrick Peterson and Chase Edmonds not surprised about Arizona Cardinals drama with Kyler Murray
Former Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds, who signed with the Miami Dolphins earlier this year, was the guest on the latest episode of “All Things Covered”. During his discussion with Peterson and McFadden, Edmonds was asked if he was surprised about all of the drama with Arizona and Murray this offseason.
The former Cardinals running back said the drama “wasn’t surprising.” Edmonds didn’t place blame for the drama on Murray, however, he more alluded to Arizona not having a very strong culture under their current regime as a big reason for all of the back-and-forth this offseason.
Edmonds referenced franchises like the Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, and Pittsburgh Steelers as being able to come away with wins more often than not due to the strong culture that they have.
A lack of a strong culture is something that the former Cardinals running back felt contributed to his old team collapsing at the end of both the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
Peterson went on to add that he believes Arizona does a “bad job of keeping core guys [around] that can help [the team] continue to build.” The former Cardinals cornerback used the examples of the team not keeping guys like Chandler Jones and Calais Campbell around during the last few years to support his argument.
Believe whatever you want to believe, but it sounds like there are much bigger problems in Arizona than a quarterback scrubbing the team from his Instagram account.
