Vikings sign CB Patrick Peterson


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't be surprised to see PP playing some type of hybrid nickel/safety like a Charles Woodson, Minkah, or Honey Badger.

Either way the D is going to have a lot more teeth this next year. 3 better DL, year 2 corners, and PP. The only loss being Harris.

Even if you get a limited version of Peterson, getting him, Tomlinson and having Barr, Pierce and maybe Hunter back will be huge for our defense.

I think our focus stays on the defense continuing with free agency and the draft. Last year has Zimmer mad and I think he's too proud to let all his work go to waste.

Getting excited for 2021! Skol!

I’m fine with the defensive heavy approach. I just hope they supplement that with a really good OL at 14 and do what it takes to keep Hunter happy. I’d be content spending most every pick in rounds 3 and 4 on defense too, save for maybe another Guard and WR.

Adding leadership to the defense seems to be the goal. Both PP and Dalvin are highly praise for their leadership. Always like Peterson. Hoping he has some juice left. Having more safety help will allow him not force things as much.

This is unbelievable news!    Love it!   Peterson seems like the Darrel Green, Charles and Rod Wooson type who'll be able to play until 36 or so - and at a high level.   

Torally agree with the sentiments of revitalize the D so far, and build the OLine in the draft.    They keep plugging these holes and they just might draft a QB on day 2.

Our CB’s total cost about 18M this year. There’s CB’s individually that make over 20M

What is your point?  What does that have to do with Peterson? I honestly don't get your post.

They have successfully drafted zero OL past round 2 under this regime. So, it's going to be difficult.

You said it’s real money. I’m saying it’s a veteran on a pretty average deal for the going price. Our CB’s at one time were Chris Jones and Cordea Tankersely who wouldn’t even had jobs last year if our DB room wasn’t just destroyed.

Peterson barely misses games, 3 time all pro, 30 years old, hasn’t let up a 100 yard game since 2015.

is he what he was? Probably not. 
 

basically my point is for his price, it’s probably worth at least a couple points a game.
