Entering this season, the Philadelphia Eagles secondary was supposed to be one of the strengths of the team.  The young and talented group of cornerbacks featuring Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones, Jalen Mills, and Rasul Douglas were all battling for playing time and considered to be one of the top units in the NFL.

Seven weeks into the season, it might be the teams biggest position of need, and an area that will need to be upgraded if they want to make the playoffs. The Eagles rank 24th in the league in pass defense, and just got burned for three, fourth quarter touchdowns, in their 21-17 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

One player who might be able to help?

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who reportedly requested a trade.

According to reports at least two teams have an eye on Peterson, the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints, and Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports said on Twitter that the two teams have been trying to work out a deal.

So will the Cardinals consider trading Peterson?

Speaking Monday, Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said trading the 28-year old is "out of the question even though ESPN's Adam Schefter reported "desperately" wants out of Arizona.

Even Cardinals owner, Michael Bidwill refuted a report that the team would consider trading Peterson.

"I've seen the speculation," said Bidwill. "But it's not happening."
