The Kansas City Chiefs may soon have two guys in their secondary who played together with the Arizona Cardinals. That is if they do in fact trade for Patrick Peterson at some point.
According to Nate Taylor of The Athletic, the Chiefs could approach the Cardinals about a Peterson trade in August. Apparently, the Chiefs have been trying to acquire the All-Pro cornerback since last season.
“Since last season, the Chiefs have been interested in acquiring Peterson via a trade with the Cardinals, who were asking for plenty back in compensation before the league’s Oct. 30 deadline,” Taylor said. “The Cardinals, however, according to multiple league sources, didn’t want to discuss a possible trade with the Chiefs before the NFL Draft last month. With Peterson’s suspension, it’s possible that the Chiefs could approach the Cardinals again, this time during training camp in August.”
The Chiefs saw Arizona’s asking price as too much for the cornerback and stopped the talks. Although, talks resumed before this year’s draft but neither side could agree on anything.
