Support grows for Steelers trying to acquire CB Patrick Peterson

November 12, 2018 GMT

Pittsburgh Steelers fans and media members aren’t the only ones pontificating about the prospect of the Black and Gold trying to acquire Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson.

As we told you Tuesday, making a trade happen may be difficult. The price of acquiring him may be too rich for the Steelers’ blood. Plus, there is the small matter of the Cardinals’ willingness to trade Peterson in the first place.

But there seems to be a groundswell of support for the Steelers to make a play. And it’s not just originating from you and me. It’s coming from within the Steelers locker room and outside of the 412 and 724 area codes.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown got the ball rolling with this tweet.
