PITTSBURGH (93.7 The FAN) - The Steelers need a cornerback and there is one of the absolute best in the league available via trade right now in Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.

To find out if the Steelers are interested, we talked to their former cornerback and Patrick Peterson's cousin, Bryant McFadden.

McFadden has been talking with Peterson throughout this process and told us who is and who isn't involved in trade talks with the Cardinals.

"My communication with Pat, Pittsburgh has not been involved," McFadden told us.

To make matters worse, McFadden told us who is involved in trade talks with the Cardinals and it just so happens to be one of the Steelers biggest rivals.

"Based on today currently, with the Saints making the move for Eli Apple, they're out of the running. The last two teams that I've caught wind of, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots.

Having an obvious knowledge of the Steelers having played here, and knowledge of Patrick Peterson given their relation, McFadden told us what a trade for Peterson would do for this team.

"If Pittsburgh made that happen, you'd have to like their chances as far as representing the AFC in the Super Bowl." 

Bryant went on to say that he believes the Steelers are a player or two on the defensive side of the ball away from being a real Super Bowl contender right now.

There is also the issue that the Cardinals don't appear to be super motivated to move Peterson based on the asking price.  So what is that asking price?

"They're asking for a lot," McFadden said.  "Based on my conversations with Pat, and based on his conversations with his agent, they're asking for a lot.  They're asking for multiple picks...I can't confirm this, but based on what I've gathered, Philadelphia had a package with at least two picks, and I think Arizona wants more than two picks."
