Patrick Peterson on re-signing with #Vikings“There’s a good group of guys in the dressing room. … I just felt it was good.” He said the team was really improving.

It was a change of scenery for the eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro selection, who spent the first 10 years of his career with the Arizona Cardinals. And he’s clearly found a home in Minnesota.

“If he stays healthy, he could wear the Vikings uniform for a few more years,” said his cousin and Everything is covered podcast co-host Bryant McFadden said Chris Tomasse from St. Paul Pioneer Press in December. “He loves Minnesota. He’s really embraced [it].”

The team’s young star, Justin Jefferson, has praised Peterson during the 2021 season.

“I mean, he’s the best of the best. Going against him every day helps me grow as a receiver – I just ask him different ways to improve myself, improve my route, what things have- there views in my route to push him to jump?” he said on the team’s website in December. “He taught me a lot and I’m doing pretty well this season thanks to him.”

Even with the Vikings rebuilding after laying off former head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman this offseason, the LSU product is clearly in the plans of new head coach Kevin O’Connell and new general manager Kwesi Adofo. -Mensah.

Peterson is no longer at his peak or one of the game’s true elite superstars in this position, but retaining him is good news for the Minnesota secondary heading into the 2022 campaign.
