The Vikings had issues at cornerback last year. They’ve responded by landing one of the best cornerbacks in free agency.
Per a source with knowledge of the deal, the Vikings have signed Patrick Peterson to a one-year deal.
Others are reporting it’s a $10 million deal. (I’ve got a feeling it’s “up to” $10 million; we’ll see what the official numbers say.)
Peterson, a top-10 pick in 2011, spent 10 years in Arizona. He instantly makes Minnesota’s cornerback depth chart better. Time will tell whether that’s enough to propel the Vikings back to the postseason.
