CB Patrick Peterson says he’s re-signing with Minnesota Vikings

Winger Patrick Peterson announced Wednesday on “All Things Covered,” the podcast he co-hosts with Bryant McFadden, that he will re-sign with the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year contract.

“I’m going to stay in Minnesota and run it back with the others. Keep it up North,” he said, wearing a Viking cap.

He said other teams his representatives are speaking to include the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Commanders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He said Tampa Bay’s interest depends on whether they re-sign Carlton Davis.

He said the addition of new head coach Kevin O’Connell and the selection of defensive coordinator, Ed Donatell, made him excited again.

“I just feel it’s right to be there and mingle with those people and work together for that common goal. The whole team is stacked,” he said. “Like I always said about last year, we just didn’t put it together in certain situations but we got even better, I believe, this year in this year’s season by adding a great attacking mind in Kevin, add a fast runner (Za’Darius Smith) to help Danielle [Hunter]with Ed coming from a defensive background… these guys are definitely trying to put the pieces in place and now it’s just us, the coaching staff and the players, out running and together come up with the best possible play plan to get some dubs. “

He said he wants to play for three more seasons, including the 2022 season.

“I feel great, it all depends on what the body feels,” he says.

After 10 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, where he won three All-Pro titles and was named to eight consecutive Pro Bowls, Peterson signed a one-year proving contract with the Vikings in 2021.

Peterson, 31, brought plenty of experience to the Vikings high school team as he transitioned into a role that didn’t rely on him to obscure the opponent’s top collectors the way he had during the early part of his career. industry in Arizona. While at Minnesota, Peterson played a key role in helping develop young full-backs such as Cameron Dantzler, Kris Boyd and Harrison Hand.

Peterson remains excellent at full-back and could choose to explore a safe move at this point in his career, a move he discussed towards the end of the 2020 season while still with the Cardinals. .

The full-back walked out of the 2021 season with a six pick in the Vikings’ Week 18 final against the Chicago Bears to extend his streak of scoring one interception in all 11 seasons he’s played in the NFL. He appeared in 13 games for the Vikings after a hamstring injury forced him to be on the bench from Weeks 7-10 and a COVID-19 diagnosis caused him to miss the Week 13 loss at Detroit.

Peterson said his goal is to play 15 seasons before he considers retiring, which could mean switching to broadcasting. His podcast, which he co-hosts with Bryant McFadden, his cousin and an NFL vet for seven years, is a weekly obligation for the full-back.

The Cardinals picked Peterson fifth overall in the 2011 draft. He has 29 interceptions in his 11 NFL seasons.
