Week 2 Outlook
Chad Graff of The Athletic reports that Patrick Peterson came to Minnesota to play cornerback, not safety.
Peterson just sign a one-year deal with the Vikings during the off-season. He confirmed that he came to Minnesota to play cornerback and not safety like some might have suggested. Peterson has played cornerback his entire career for the Cardinals. In 2020, Peterson had three interceptions with eight passes defended and 52 solo tackles. Only 30-years old, Peterson still has juice left in the tank and will hope to improve the Vikings secondary that was torched all season long in 2020.
Former Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
While not necessarily the shutdown cornerback that he once was, Peterson has allowed over 100 yards in just 1 game since 2015, according to Pro Football Focus. He'll turn 31 years old before the start of the 2021 NFL season but has missed just six games throughout his 10-year career.
Cardinals DB Patrick Peterson said on a Zoom call Thursday that he and the Cardinals have not had any contract talks to this point.
Peterson enters into the final year of his five-year, $70M deal he signed back in 2015. He told the media he thinks 2020 could be a special year for him and the Cardinals. “I feel I have a lot to prove,” said Peterson. He also said he would love to stay with one team his entire career. He’s played nine seasons in the NFL, all with the Cardinals, racking up 438 tackles and 25 INTs in 138 games played. Peterson will look to prove to the naysayers that at 29 years old he is still one of the best defensive backs in the game.
