Arizona Cardinals Star Safety Requests Trade

The Arizona Cardinals off-season has been a wild one thus far, as they've replaced their Head Coach, seen a key veteran officially retire as well as the fact they've been dealing with constant trade rumours about several top names, and now, one of their most important players has told the franchise he now wants out too.

Reportedly, Budda Baker requested the trade quite some time ago, as he wants to become one of the highest paid safeties in the league, and now, all signs in Arizona point towards a big rebuild, as the team could also be moving on from star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

In six years with Arizona, Baker has racked up 7.5 sacks, 7 interceptions, 6 forced fumbles, 5 fumble recoveries and 39 passes defended, and has proven himself to be a dynamic threat all over the secondary, so it's likely that Arizona could get a solid return for him.
