It’s still unclear what’s going on with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but it appears that he isn’t happy with the team.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports, citing a source close to Peterson, that someone in Cardinals management said something to Peterson that “pissed him off.”

The source added, however, that it’s probably not going to be a big enough deal to spur a trade.

Peterson skipped voluntary workouts, but coach Kliff Kingsbury said there’s “no question” Peterson will be a Cardinal this season.

Some cryptic Instagram posts from Peterson have led to speculation that he’s unhappy in Arizona. If he is unhappy, it wouldn’t be the first time: He requested a trade last season but later apologized for that and said he’s committed to the Cardinals.

The 28-year-old Peterson has two more years left on his contract, with cap hits of $11.9 million and $13.2 million. That’s an affordable deal that there would certainly be other teams willing to trade for, but it doesn’t appear to have reached that point. At least not yet.
