Top 5 States With FinanciallyConscious Borrowers

Top 5 States With FinanciallyConscious Borrowers

first_img Financial Responsibility 2017-09-28 Joey Pizzolato Top 5 States With Financially-Conscious Borrowers Share Assessing financial stability is vital for bank and non-bank lenders when determining whether or not a potential borrower is suitable for a home loan, and according to a new report by Wallethub, some states populations fared better than others.To determine the findings, Wallethub analyzed four main metrics across 50 states and the District of Columbia, including: debt and spending, savings, credit score, and overall financial literacy.By weighing these metrics, Wallethub ranked each state from best to worst in terms of financial savviness. Massachusetts came in at in first place with a score of 70.56; followed by New Hampshire at 69.67; Connecticut at 67.12; Minnesota at 66.58; and New Jersey at 66.30.According to Vicki Jobst, Assistant Professor in the Undergraduate Business Department at Benedictine University, the biggest obstacle for consumers to stay on a budget was that “consumers do not realize what they are spending their money on. When they become aware, they can control their spending habits.”Pam Smith, Presidential Teaching Professor and KPMG Professor of Accounting at Northern Illinois University expanded on that sentiment:“The biggest obstacle is usually impulse purchases. That is why a plan (or budget) is beneficial—it reduces impulse purchases. The best way for [consumers] to stay on budget is to keep long-term goals in mind.”Of the top five most financially savvy states, Massachusetts ranked No 1 in the “debt and spending” rating, although their “financial literacy” ranking stood at 14 and “savings” ranking was at 17. New Hampshire ranked No 1 in the “savings” rating, and was in the top 10 of all four-major metrics. New Jersey held the lowest ranking of the top five in “credit” ranking, at 27.All of Wallethub’s comparisons and rankings can be found on their website.center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News, Origination September 28, 2017 706 Views last_img read more

For the past three years the Florida Tomato Exchange (FTE) has stayed on message, repeating its claims of Mexico’s unfair trading practices, illegal government subsidies, dumping of tomatoes on the US market, worker mistreatment, and more without backing up their accusations with evidence of any kind.”The Florida Tomato Exchange has for a long time advocated the U.S.’s withdrawal from the Tomato Suspension Agreement with Mexico, claiming that it has been flouted and that U.S. growers have suffered as a result. The FPAA, meanwhile, is a long-standing advocate of free trade for Mexican produce in North America and over recent months has frequently accused the FTE of protectionism. In the FPAA’s Monday statement, the organization listed a series of rebuttals regarding Schadler’s letter.In response to the FTE’s claims that Mexican tomato growers receive “illegal” subsidies and that is why they have taken so much market share away from Florida tomatoes, the FPAA said that although Mexico has had programs to promote agriculture, they are “small and nothing like our USDA programs”. “To the contrary, US government assistance to agriculture dwarfs anything that Mexico could possibly do,” it said.It added that the FTE “ignores development trends and grower consolidation to paint an inaccurate picture of farm closures”. The group said that the decline in the number of Floridian tomato companies during the 22-year duration of the old suspension agreement could be attributed to many causes.”Most importantly, Florida growers failed to see the rest of the agricultural world evolving into the 21st century and got passed by. Now they are crying foul,” it said.”They are mostly producing flavorless tomatoes that consumers have abandoned, and they are trying to use politics to maintain an outmoded business model.”It also highlighted that Mexican tomato imports are an important economic driver for U.S. companies and job creation.In addition, the FPAA said it ‘strongly agrees’ that U.S. farmers must be protected, but claimed the FTE’s action “go well beyond the intent of the law”. “They are attempting to create a seasonal monopoly to force their products onto the American public to make up for their lack of foresight and innovation.  In short, they are trying to regulate their way to profitability,” it said.The U.S. withdrew from the Tomato Suspension Agreement with Mexico in early May, implementing tariffs on 17.5% and reinitiating an anti-dumping investigation, the conclusions of which are expected toward the end of this year.

In 1984 Roy Green ran a 42second 40yard dash

first_imgIn 1984, Roy Green ran a 4.2-second 40-yard dash, making him one of the fastest players in the NFL.Over 25 years later, the man they called “Jetstream” is feeling as good as he was the day he hung up his cleats.The reason? Green received a screening for sleep apnea, a disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of low breathing during sleep.“I’ve had some health issues for the last three or four years and I definitely wasn’t sleeping — two hours max in the evening and I’d wake up and be up for another couple hours just back and forth,” Green said during a recent interview. “When you don’t sleep well, you’re just miserable the next day. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “So I finally got tested, got the oral appliance, and now I have more energy than I had when I was playing.”Green and others are sharing the message about the importance of sleep apnea testing. He, along with former teammates Derek Kennard and Mark Walczak and current Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald, are part of The Pro Players Health Alliance — an organization dedicated to helping former NFL players through providing testing and treatment options for those who suffer from sleep apnea.PPHA is hosting a public awareness seminar Thursday April 18 at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix which is open to the public.Statistics show that 37 million Americans experience regular or chronic snoring and 18 million suffer from sleep apnea. The Alliance’s findings among athletes have been eye-opening. “We’ve found that eight out of ten guys that we’ve tested, athletes, present and former, have tested positive for sleep apnea,” Green said.But the two-time Pro Bowler isn’t the only former Cardinal affected by the disorder. Kennard, who will also be at the seminar, has seen other health improvements following a test for sleep apnea. Top Stories “Derek’s lost 162 pounds since getting the oral appliance because he has more energy,” Green said. “He’s sleeping, and his body is responding.”Green urges the public to educate themselves on this debilitating disease.“We think that up to 70% of America is probably affected by it and don’t even know it,” he said. “Just think how your quality of life can change by taking one simple test.“And even if you don’t have it, somebody you love has it. This is saving people’s lives.”Event DetailsDate: Thursday, April 18Time: 7:00 p.m. (open to public)Location: Sheraton Crescent Hotel 2620 W.

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo GLENDALE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his second year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through: What were your thoughts on the skirmish yesterday between Darnell Dockett and Bradley Sowell?“It’s not tolerable.” On making those two run laps around the field until the end of practice…“You got ejected from the game so you get ejected from practice. We practice like it’s a game every day. We play by the rules. You lose your temper and punch a guy in the game, you get ejected.”What are you looking for out of Jay Feely at Minnesota?“Perfection. Make all of his kicks and his kickoffs, depth and hang time of his kickoffs. He’s always kicked off adequately, but when someone is there that’s kicking off better and all of the field goals are the same, you’re going to take the guy who kicks off better.”How has Jerraud Powers transitioned to a slot corner?“There was no transition. He’s done it all of his career and in college, and he’s always been really, really good at it. He’s probably our most valuable player on defense because he plays about four positions right now. He’s the smartest player on that side of the ball. He brings tremendous study habits, knowledge; two good interceptions again yesterday, strictly on awareness.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “No change in injuries. Everybody that was out yesterday is out again today; and it’s all day-to-day. Thought yesterday’s practice was outstanding coming back off a win. The intensity and speed of the practice was really, really good.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img Top Stories Has Justin Bethel continued to progress from where he left off in the offseason?“There’s no doubt. He’s tackling well. He’s covering well. His route dissection of combinations and reading things is much, much better. He’s diagnosing things at a much faster pace; and really, really improving.”How big a deal is it that Jonathan Cooper is missing time because of a toe injury?“It’s a big deal for anybody on the club right now because the competition level is high. It’s not like anything is (in) cement (where) you’ve got your job until you get back. It’s Wally Pipp every day.”So there’s no, you can’t lose your job because of injury?“You can if somebody comes in and plays better than you were playing.

Just where the Seahawks will be playing, however, remains very much up in the air after their six-point loss to St. Louis. In fact, Sunday’s games didn’t eliminate any potential sites for Seattle’s wild-card game.There are three possibilities that will be depend on the outcome of two games in Week 17: Seattle (9-6) at Arizona (13-2), 1:25 p.m. and Minnesota (10-5) at Green Bay (10-5), 5:30 p.m.• What people are saying after Seahawks lay an egg in loss to Rams (SeattlePI.com)After a month and a half of offensive excellence, the Seahawks attack couldn’t get anything going against a stout (but by no means dominant) Rams defense. The offensive line reverted to its early season form, meaning the Marshawn Lynch-and Thomas Rawls-less running back corps couldn’t get anything established on the ground while quarterback Russell Wilson took a beating. The Seahawks’ offensive line didn’t play well on Sunday against St. Louis.That was better than Broncos guard Evan Mathis, though. He barely played at all Monday night.Six snaps. That was the total playing time for the former Pro Bowl guard who visited the Seahawks before the regular season started before ultimately choosing the Broncos, signing a one-year deal that will pay him about $3 million.Tuesday, December 29• Ranking the Seahawks’ potential NFC opponents based on matchups (ESPN.com)Going into Week 17, the field in the NFC is set, but the only seed that’s locked up is Washington at No. 4.The Seattle Seahawks will go in as the fifth or sixth seed, meaning they’ll need to win at least two games (most likely three) on the road to get back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year.• Could Seahawks assistant Tom Cable get a head coaching gig? (ESPN.com)• Are Seahawks’ offensive-line struggles a trend or an aberration? (Seattle Times)That’s the question the Seahawks’ offensive line will answer, one way or the other. The Seahawks’ next opponent, the Cardinals, sacked Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers nine times Sunday.• Three Things from the Seahawks’ loss to St. Louis (MyNorthwest.com) Wednesday, December 30• How the Seahawks are attacking defenses downfield (ESPN.com)Russell Wilson is averaging 8.41 yards per attempt, which ranks third.

Since then he, nor the team, have used it as an excuse but there were times balls he completed for most of the season wound up sailing over the intended wide receiver’s head or were just a bit inaccurate.Head coach Bruce Arians had said it wasn’t an issue with his play leading up to and immediately after Sunday’s loss. While Arians didn’t think it affected his play, he did agree with the quarterback in deciding against playing in the Pro Bowl.“I don’t think it did. Watching him throw for the last two-and-a-half weeks, it really didn’t,” Arians said Monday. “Had we had to play the first round, I think it was affecting him a little bit. It was affecting him a ton.“I probably should have not played him against Seattle [in Week 17] and let it heal more.

But Fitzgerald now 32 and about to enter his 13th

But Fitzgerald now 32 and about to enter his 13th

first_imgBut Fitzgerald, now 32 and about to enter his 13th season, has not always been “Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals great.” Just more than 12 years ago he was a 20-year-old football player with dreams of making it to the NFL and, while projected to be a high pick, had nothing guaranteed to him.Thinking back to that time, Fitzgerald wrote an open letter to the 2016 NFL Draft class for the Players’ Tribune, and in it he explains to this year’s draft hopefuls that they should appreciate the situation they find themselves in — about to enter the NFL — while understanding how stressful this moment is.He also offers words of caution:I know many of you have been preparing for this opportunity since you were little kids. You’ve dreamt of seeing your name flash across TV screens around the country after hearing it called from the podium. That’s the payoff for a lifetime of hustle and determination. But this next leap is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. We all went through that shock early in college when you realized that you weren’t playing against high school kids anymore. You adjusted, and eventually excelled. But now in the NFL, there are no weak links. You’re playing against men – against professionals – and every single one of them is probably just as driven and passionate about this game as you are.As a rookie, Fitzgerald caught 58 passes for 780 yards and eight touchdowns. He was good — not great — but it was not a shock to anyone that he would need some time to adjust to playing at the professional level. The following season he caught 103 passes for 1,409 yards and 10 touchdowns, and had officially arrived as a star. When I first came to the Cardinals, I tried to make sure I only caught the attention of the veterans because of my play on the field. I was fortunate to share a locker room with Emmitt Smith, and I was struck by the way he conducted himself. This guy was the leading rusher in NFL history, and he played 14 years in this league. I figured he must know a lot of things I didn’t, so I watched him closely. I watched the way he ate, how he trained and how he generally handled himself on a day-to-day basis. I learned so much just from watching Emmitt, and I’m really thankful that I had the opportunity to learn from him.Smith played just two seasons for the Cardinals — the last two of his NFL career — and in 2004 ran for 937 yards and nine touchdowns. While his impact on the franchise was undoubtedly minimal in terms of statistics, to hear Fitzgerald tell it, the Hall of Famer played a significant role in the player he ultimately became.One other thing Fitzgerald mentions is how important it is to work hard, and he singled out a couple of his current teammates as prime examples.I’ve worked with several guys who worked extremely hard. Two of the best players on our team right now are Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that they were also two of the hardest working rookies I’ve ever been around. You never heard a thing from either of those guys. Never. They didn’t speak a lot, but when it came to practice and conditioning, they were always first. First guys in the building, last guys to leave. They had the mindset that they were going to come in and be productive players. They didn’t say it, they showed it. That’s a good example to follow.Fitzgerald finishes the letter by acknowledging how overwhelming this time can be for a young player, chances are this will not be the last time they do not know where they will be playing next. He points out how it is rare for someone to play a long career with one team, so it would be wise to expect a little more uncertainty down the road. Comments   Share   IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – In this photo released by the NFL, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald speaks to students during a Super Bowl Honor Roll gold ball ceremony at the Academy of Holy Angels on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 in Minneapolis. (Andy Clayton-King/AP Images for National Football League) On April 24, 2004, the Arizona Cardinals made Pittsburgh wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald the third overall selection in the NFL Draft.He was chosen after QB Eli Manning and OT Robert Gallery, and before QB Philip Rivers, S Sean Taylor and QB Ben Roethlisberger, among many others.To say the Cardinals made a good pick would be an understatement, as Fitzgerald has gone on to become the franchise’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving touchdowns and receiving yards while helping the organization reach heights it had never come close to. From there, the receiver then imparts one final piece of wisdom, saying once drafted, the time for the real work will begin.Continue to push yourself to become a better athlete and a better person every day. And recognize that you are now a pillar of your community. A lot of kids are going to look up to you, so recognize that and try to serve as a good example for them. Be an asset to your organization on and off the field, and you’ll have a very long career in this league. I promise you that.Congratulations for what you’ve accomplished thus far and for what’s to come. You’ve earned it.See you on Sunday,Larry Fitzgerald Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact It does not always work out that way, though, and Fitzgerald said one of the biggest things a young player can do is avoid putting too much stock into analysis of them — good or bad — because none of it will matter once they put on the pads and go to work. Fitzgerald noted how as a young player he surrounded himself with people who would not coddle him, and instead would tell him how things actually are. That went for on the field and off it.If you do something bad, you need to have people in your life to call you out on it. If you’re blowing your first paycheck on flashy jewelry and taking out credit lines that you don’t even fully understand, you need someone to give you a damn wake up call. When I came into the league, I worked hard to keep my inner circle both small and honest. I recommend that you do the same. Some people won’t make the cut, but that’s just life.The nine-time Pro Bowl selection went on to say that yes, the players should take some time to celebrate being drafted, but then need to turn their focus to making sure this is not the high point of their NFL career. To that end, he said it is important to, as a rookie, keep your mouth shut and your eyes open.last_img read more

I’m really proud of him and he studied his playbook well enough in the secondary meetings that he could play a position he hasn’t played.”Arians credited some of the win to young players such as Miller, Rodney Gunter and Evan Boehm stepping up for the team.“So many young players,” Arians added. “Second play of the game, (Miller is) out there playing safety. Thank God he studied his playbook because he’s a corner.” – / 18 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals rookie cornerback Harlan Miller had a lot to prepare for already on Saturday.The sixth-round selection out of Southeastern Louisiana was making his NFL debut against the Seattle Seahawks after being on the practice squad.Arizona wanted a look at their rookie but they got more than they could have ever expected out of Miller in the Cardinals’ 34-31 win over the Seahawks Saturday.Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson sprained his MCL early in the game, so with Jefferson out, free safety D.J. Swearinger shifted to strong safety and Miller, with no experience at safety according to head coach Bruce Arians, started nearly the entire game at free safety.

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 1 Comments   Share   Stanton pointed to veterans like Shaun Hill, Jon Kitna and Dan Orlovsky for his longevity. They each taught him how to be a professional and, perhaps more importantly, how to survive in a league that at times can be very cruel.It’s why Stanton feels an obligation to pay it forward, whether it be to Logan Thomas or Matt Barkley in years past, or now to Blaine Gabbert and Trevor Knight.“I was fortunate to have older guys that kind of took me under their wing and I’ll be a resource for (Gabbert) and Trevor and everybody else,” Stanton said.Still, it has to be hard to help a player who wants to be in your position, doesn’t it?“No,” Stanton said. “I think for my personality and the humility that comes along with it — eventually I’m not going to be able to play this game any more and the most important thing to me is how I’m thought about in this locker room. The locker room is such a close-knit group but hopefully even though I haven’t played a ton in my career people would say they enjoyed playing with me, that they respected me and the way that I approached the game and that’s all I can ask for.”Stanton insists the addition of Gabbert has not changed his approach to training camp. For his career, he has appeared in a total of 33 games, never playing in more than nine in a single season.But Stanton is always ready. Always.“Everybody is hoping that Carson stays healthy and that’s the first and foremost goal but if that doesn’t happen, I want to be as up to speed with everything I can,” he said. “I’ve got goals for myself that’s allowed me to get to the position that I’m in now and trying to evaluate and get better each and every year, so that’s what I’ve done.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter “In the past, with some other guys around here that weren’t as established as Blaine, I don’t think it had any difference,” he said.During the offseason, head coach Bruce Arians made it known Stanton was the clear No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Palmer. Yet early in camp, Arians opened the door, ever so slightly, for Gabbert to supplant Stanton.“It’s going to be a tough one to get,” Arians said, referring to the backup job, “but yeah, that’s why he’s out there.”Stanton, too, sees Gabbert as competition.“Everything is competition,” he said. “If you’re not, you’re going to probably be out the door. Everybody wants these jobs and there’s only so many to go around.”Stanton, 33, understands his role is rare. There are just not many career backups around anymore. The league has changed. It’s why Stanton has never taken his situation for granted.“I mean you guys see the scouts out there. They’re not out there just for the heck of it. They’re out there evaluating everything we do,” he said. “And we have to be our toughest critics as well.”To this day, Stanton charts every throw he makes, and doesn’t, in practice.Last season, Stanton played in five games, starting one — a win at San Francisco in Week 5 in which he passed for 124 yards and two touchdowns in place of a concussed Palmer. That victory improved him to 8-5 as a starter.

(AP Photo/Matt York)center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling GLENDALE, Ariz. — The role of a backup quarterback is to be ready if and when the starter suffers an injury.It’s a role Drew Stanton has served for his entire 10-year NFL career, including the past four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.Stanton, however, has another role, one which he wholeheartedly embraces, and that is mentor.“I take that role very seriously, being able to help everybody else around me,” he said Monday, “because if it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t be in the league.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling TEMPE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media several times leading up to gameday.Here, in this space, with help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following practice.“Obviously we made a couple transactions today and I really like the look of our squad. All the painful days are over and it’s good times. We got a very good practice start with the bonus day and I look forward to getting back here Wednesday.” 3 Comments   Share   On the Cardinals’ captains for the 2017 season:“Yes. Carson (Palmer) and Larry (Fitzgerald). Patrick (Peterson) and Frostee (Rucker). And (Phil) Dawson.”On signing P Andy Lee:“Andy, obviously, has a very good relationship with Phil. He’s been an All-Pro punter for years. He’s healthy and we’re real glad to have him. He’s been his holder for two years so that shouldn’t be any problem.”On how much improvement he sees special teams making this season with Lee and Dawson together:“Yeah, I would hope they would be a whole lot more consistent, you know? Two veteran guys that have been through a lot of big games, and I’m excited they’re both on our team.”On how good of a punter Lee was at his peak:“He wasn’t Ray Guy, but he was close. For his era, he’s one of the tops and he can still put it out there.”On RB David Johnson’s versatility and how much can he be used in different ways:“Like I’ve always said, he’s the closest thing I’ve been around since Marshall Faulk. Marshall could start at wide receiver, probably on defense as a safety or corner, play running back. Very smart guys. You have to watch, if a guy’s not real smart, you overload him to where he can’t play fast if you put a bunch of things on his plate. Obviously, David’s very bright and it’s good to see Andre (Ellington) back healthy, because he can do a lot of things like that also.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “Very consistent. He’s got a good anchor. He’s very quick. Those blitz pickup drills, he could fly out of there and get those safeties and he’s just been really consistent the whole time.”On what’s the biggest difference personnel-wise from this year and last:“I think we’re smarter. That’s the biggest thing, especially in the back end of the secondary. We’re, I think, longer and faster again. Each year, we’ve tried to get longer and faster. I think our biggest improvement would be special teams.”On whether he feels like LB Haason Reddick will start and how he feels about Reddick’s progress:“He’ll start in certain packages and I love where he’s at. He’s growing every single day.”On whether there are any concerns with initially keeping only three outside linebackers:“No, because Philip (Wheeler) trained last week and played outside backer in that game and he is a versatile guy so he gives us a versatile inside and outside guy.”On Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and his defensive scheme:“He’s an excellent coach. A first-class guy. Always got his team in a standing position to win games. They’re sound with everything they do.” On the importance of starting the 2017 season well:“It’s going to be paramount with all those road games in September and October. Yeah, we’ve got to get off to a good start and there are no excuses about 10 a.m. and all that crap. We all know the schedule. So yeah, we’ve got to get off to a good start and we’ve got to get off to a good start in those games. You don’t want to get behind on the road in a domed stadium for sure.”On what he saw out of Ellington in training camp and preseason:“I saw Andre. The guy that was there two or three years ago. That run he made in the Hall of Fame game for the touchdown, that was the Andre Ellington of a couple years ago, fighting, spinning, getting it in. And, the dynamic pass receiver that he’s been.”On whether he ever figured out why the Cardinals had issues playing on the East Coast last season:“Going east last year, we snapped the ball over a guy’s head. We just didn’t play very well and the year before, we had no problems. Each team is so different. We went up to New York a couple years ago and played great, so it’s an excuse really. That’s all it is.”On what he saw from C/G Daniel Munyer in training camp and the preseason: (AP Photo) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more

first_imgBethea said the situation wouldn’t sour Peterson’s relationships with his teammates or cause a distraction.“He’s committed. Could be some frustration there, understandably,” Bethea said. “It’s not going to have an effect on the locker room. Pat’s one of the guys. He’s never been a cancer, he’s not that type of person, he’s not that type of player.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz — Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson wants to move on from a trade request that came out of frustration after speaking to Arizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill and coach Steve Wilks.His focus is on the now, Oct. 24, and a Sunday game against the San Francisco 49ers, Peterson said speaking Wednesday, his first meeting with reporters since news broke two days earlier that he’d asked for a trade out of Arizona. 15 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories “It came at a bad time and I was just frustrated,” Peterson said. “You see the record.”Peterson also didn’t answer whether he would feel the same way about remaining committed to the Cardinals after the season.“Like I said, you saw the statement earlier. I’m completely focused on this week,” he said. “I can’t worry about the future and I can’t talk about the past. Right now, I’m completely worried about what it is. I’m focused on October 24th right now.”And so now the Cardinals move forward for the time being.Wilks on Monday said the team would not trade Peterson before meeting with the disgruntled cornerback. He called the situation status quo and remained focused on the task at hand — winning the team’s second game of the year.“We’re all frustrated right now based on the situation we’re in, 1 and 6,” Wilks said Wednesday. “My thoughts and opinions haven’t changed since the things I talked about Monday.“We’re going to put this behind us, we’re going to move forward.”Veteran safety Antoine Bethea, who sits two lockers down from Peterson in the team facility, said he’d spoken with his teammate as well. Three-time All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson has issued a statement vowing to continue to give his all to his team for “years to come,” adding “I am an Arizona Cardinal.” Peterson’s statement, released through Twitter, is his first comment since an ESPN report said he had asked the Cardinals to trade him by the Oct. 30 deadline. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri, File) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “It’s a new day and it’s behind me,” Peterson said. “Now I’m just moving forward, doing whatever I need to do to galvanize my teammates, circle the wagons so we can move forward.”Peterson wouldn’t go into detail about his conversations with Bidwill, Wilks or his teammates, but Wilks said his conversation with Peterson went well. So did Peterson’s talk with the owner, who the cornerback said has done everything in his power to build a winning team.Related LinksReport: Patrick Peterson met with front office on winning, team roleArizona Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson issues statement on trade requestPeterson will continue to fight for Cards after trade request, cousin saysHe did not reveal any details regarding assurances made by Bidwill. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that their meeting included talk of how the Cardinals would improve, Peterson’s role as a leader and included assurances about the direction of the team from Bidwill.“I talk to Mr. Bidwill every day, almost each and every day of the week,” Peterson said. “We’re in a good place. We’ll move forward from what happened the other day. I certainly think we have a clear understanding. I have two years left on my contract. I’m here.”Peterson wouldn’t say whether the frustration that led to the trade request hitting the news-cycle would linger. He did admit a 1-6 start to the year was the main reason for his unhappiness, though did not address his concerns about the team’s direction.last_img read more

first_imgKevin Zimmerman, reporter and editorThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. You don’t make a trade just to make a trade, and the reality is the Cardinals should take the player they want and not trade the pick — or Rosen — if a monster offer doesn’t come across Steve Keim’s desk. This presents the possibility we end up with a Rosen-Murray quarterback battle, which isn’t the worst result.Vince Marotta, Co-host of Bickley & MarottaThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. I do believe the decision makers of the organization communicated with other teams about dealing the pick but were ultimately not blown away by what was offered to give it up. So, Murray will be the pick. The only intrigue that remains, in my mind, is whether or not the Cardinals are blown away by an offer for Josh Rosen before Thursday night. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Arizona Cardinals have the No. 1 pick and with that comes infinite speculation about what the Cardinals should, could, might, want to and will do.But no speculation has been more prolific than the guess that Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman winner Kyler Murray will go No. 1 overall to the Cardinals, marking the second year in a row that they will have drafted a quarterback with their top pick.Is that the right move? Dave Burns, co-host of Burns & GamboThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. Too many reasons to do it and not enough to not do it. If you’re going to go out of the box in hiring Kliff Kingsbury, you might as well go all in.John Gambadoro, co-host of Burns & GamboThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. The consensus seems to be that the Cardinals will take Murray and trade Josh Rosen. I don’t have a great feel for what direction they will go so I will follow the masses and go with they take Murray.Jordan Byrd, producer of Burns & Gambo and host of Arizona Sports SaturdayThe Cardinals will: Draft Nick Bosa. I honestly believe the noise and rumors surrounding Kyler Murray to Arizona is all just a smokescreen done by the Cardinals to trade the number one pick, but after not receiving an offer to their liking, the Cards select Nick Bosa No. 1.Kellan Olson, reporter and editorThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray and trade Josh Rosen. The combination of Murray’s star upside and fit in Kliff Kingsbury’s system is too much to pass up.Matt Layman, reporter and editorThe Cardinals will: Draft either Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams. I’m just not convinced the evidence is there that the Cardinals are planning to take Murray, and it’s hard to believe the rumors this time of year.
