As of right now, it's unknown what the offers are for Peterson - if there are any - but it's safe to imagine that the Cardinals aren't going to deal him for anything less than the best.
With a reputation for being fearless and not afraid to make a move, Browns general manager, John Dorsey has already turned over about 47 percent of the current roster through a combination of free agent moves, trades and the recent NFL Draft. They would be able to get their asking price.
Former NFL cornerback Bryant McFadden, who is Peterson's cousin and played for the Cardinals in 2009, reported the LSU product's preferred destination is the New Orleans Saints.
Schefter said that Peterson feels as if things in Arizona have deteriorated and he has reaffirmed to others that he "desperately" wants out.
"We're not trading Patrick", Wilks told reporters during his press conference.
Peterson signed a five-year, $70 million extension just before the start of the 2014 season that expires after the 2020 season.
Who would and could get Peterson?
He has two interceptions and three passes defensed through seven games, along with a sack and a fumble recovery.
As now constructed, the Eagles do not have a single cornerback on their roster that they can leave confidently by themselves on a one-on-one matchup with an opposing team's top wide receiver. If the Eagles were to acquire Peterson, they could put him on one side of the field, playing opposite of Ronald Darby.
