The Arizona Cardinals are willing to rebuild their roster. While they are not willing to deal Larry Fitzgerald at this time, they are willing to trade cornerback Patrick Peterson.

According to CBS Sports, Peterson is one of several players the team is willing to move before the trade deadline.

The Cardinals are 1-4 to begin the season. In addition, Arizona has transitioned away from Sam Bradford to Josh Rosen.

Bradford — who signed a $20 million deal with the Cardinals in the offseason — was the team’s third string quarterback in their last game. It would be tough to deal him because of his massive salary but he could be released.

The hope in Arizona to begin the season was that they could contend for a playoff spot. However, things have not worked out under first-year Head Coach Steve Wilks.

Peterson is considered the best cornerback in football. This will now give the team two weeks to attempt to make a deal, as the trade deadline is October 30th.

The team would like to acquire as many high draft picks as possible as they rebuild around Rosen.

Besides Peterson, the team is also willing to deal safety/linebacker Deone Bucannon and linebacker Haason Reddick. Bucannon does not fit into their new defensive scheme, while Reddick, the 13th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, has a high salary that may not make a trade work.

Peterson, though, will have a lot of teams inquiring. He is still playing at an elite level.

He is due $11 million in 2019. He’ll also make $12 million in 2020, his year-30 season.

The Cardinals could even deal Fitzgerald if he would change his stance of playing in Arizona for his entire career.

Regardless, they are going to be one of the most watched teams prior the trade deadline. They also could be the most active team during this period, as well.
