Peterson is set to begin negotiations on a contract extension once the season is over.
In the report by Yahoo!'s Rand Getlin, Lawlor suspected tampering was involved and decried the situation for sports agents, where apparently people try and poach players from other agents, despite rules and guidelines from the NFLPA that prohibit such actions.
However, a tweet from Peterson himself tried to address the situation, letting fans know that he intends on staying with the Cardinals.
I'm not going anywhere, I'm here to stay. The ppl who once was is tho.— Patrick Peterson (@RealPeterson21) November 28, 2013
The mention of other people is interesting. Lawlor was quoted as saying that he has no idea what happened. The tweet makes you think that there was some issue with the agent.
Cardinals fans should, at least for now, rest assured that Arizona is where he wants to be.
