Veteran cornerback Patrick Peterson will remain in Minnesota.

Peterson said on his podcast today that he has agreed to a one-year contract to remain with the Vikings for the 2022 season.

Peterson said multiple other teams, including the Bills, Bears, Colts and Commanders, showed interest in him in free agency. But he ultimately decided to stay in Minnesota, where he signed last year after spending a decade with the Cardinals.

The 31-year-old Peterson said he expects the Vikings to take a cornerback high in this year’s draft, and that he sees himself as a veteran mentor in the secondary.

Peterson missed four games last season, but he started all 13 of the games he played and hardly ever left the field, playing 98 percent of snaps when he was active.

  1. He said he was open to switching to safety. I wonder if that’s something that might be in play. I’m glad to have him back. His best days are behind him but he still add something to the team

  2. I like this guy. Solid player and only adds value to the team. He understands his role in the big picture like a true professional. This is class.

  3. I thought players at the end of their careers care about winning a championship before retiring… oh well have fun in 3rd place in the nfcn

  4. Solid move. This frees the Vikes to take a DL or LB if all of the CBs are gone by the time they pick at #12.
