Vikings sign CB Patrick Peterson


Recommended Posts

This could turn out to be a VERY good signing.  I agree with Patrick Peterson when he says this Vikings team is loaded.  They could use an effective pass rusher, and another offensive lineman, but other than that, they are looking very good.  I predicted 12 wins for them in 2021 and see no reason why that won't be the case at this point.

Spielman:  “I also know that he has a lot of football left. I know he has a lot to prove to a lot of people. He didn’t have anything to prove to us.”

Peterson, who played 10 years in Arizona, also believes he has a lot left. He told reporters on Monday that he has envisioned playing 16 seasons.

Peterson explained that he was attracted to Minnesota by coach Mike Zimmer, given his ability to advance the careers of defensive backs. Still, Peterson said he never envisioned himself playing for a team other than the Cardinals.

At minimum, Minnesota should be a playoff team in 2021. If we do well this draft I see us taking the North.

*This is my serious prediction lol

I forgot about the suspension. Honestly I have always “liked” it. It’s more along the lines of “loving” it. 
 

positive side, last time he went up against Devante Adams and Aaron Rodgers, he didn’t let up 100 yards.... 93 yards and a TD. I’m also looking at box scores, so who knows how long he was on him. 
 

either way, adding another HOF caliber player to a defense, two years younger than Harrison Smith, can’t hurt development of the young guys.

Think of what his observations, tips, and demonstrations could do for Cameron Dantzler, Jeff Gladney, Harrison Hand, Justin Jefferson, and Besi Johnson.  This would be better than hiring an individual "coach" for each of them during camp and the pre-season because: (1) Peterson will not only be there to work with them before the season, but all through it, and (2) who better to teach them but one of the very best at his position, at the end of his career, after he's amassed all the knowledge he'll have from a long career, and after he's had so much experience dealing with people that he's wise about how to deal with them, and if we're lucky, how to get his point across to people with different ways of responding to teachers, or people trying to help.   Personally, I think this will be $9 million well spent.  Maybe he can have 2 good years for The Vikings being a decent quality CB, and the 2 more as a safety?

Who's the last good CB who moved to Safety? I don't think their pride lets them. 

Devin McCourtney (pro bowl at CB & safety), Charles Woodson, Aneas Williams, Rod Woodson, Corey Chavous

it really doesn’t happen very often unless they do it right away.

Ronnie Lott was an All-Pro CB who converted to Safety and was probably even better at that position than CB.  Of course, not many DB's in the history of the NFL are as talented and driven as Ronnie Lott.

He must have only played about 3-4 years at CB correct. Losing that Pinky had to hurt.
