Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson is set to become a free agent in March, but his hope is that he’ll remain in Minnesota.

Peterson said on his podcast, All Things Covered, that Minnesota, where he has played the last two seasons after playing his first 10 seasons in Arizona, has come to feel like home.

I would love to be there in that purple and gold again and give it a run again just because I love the community there,” Peterson said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “I love the organization. I love the new regime that [the Wilf ownership group has] brought into that building, the trainers, the strength and conditioning staff. It’s just amazing. I truly believe it felt like home for me. I felt like it was a place that I belonged. But we all know it’s a business.”

Peterson, who will turn 33 in July, is the oldest starting cornerback in the NFL. But after starting all 17 games in the regular season as well as the Vikings’ playoff game, he’s healthy and ready to go for another year.

  1. He’s performed well and i think he grades out well as a starter. Therefore, he should probably remain a starter, unless spmeone can CLEARLY out perform him.

  2. I truly cannot decide if this guy was pretty good for us or just kind of meh.

    I think he’s fantastic………

  3. He’s good enough to bring back for the right price. It’s not like he’s been getting outplayed by Dantzler, Evans, Sullivan etc. Shelley is the only one who actually looks like he may be a quality starter.

  4. Another 1 year deal would be fine with me, but still need to beef up entire secondary regardless.

  5. Hopefully we can keep him for another year. Maybe find a way to get rid of Cousins while we are doing contracts for 2023.

  6. Odd that a guy who says he wants to be back would throw the locked-in QB for next year under the bus in the same interview.

  7. Why? That team is on a downward slide. Old team, no cap room, few draft picks. Quarterback who isn’t a winner.

  8. As I remember he was getting torched on a regular basis. I know Josh Allen threw that stupid interception to him, I just haven’t seen it. Defense too slow and old, gotta move on.

  9. He didn’t suck, had a good PFF rating, and was a decent leader. Of all the defensive problems last season, he wasn’t really one of them.

    Most of all, he loves the ridiculous money they’re willing to pay a has been.

    Huh… I didn’t know this was an article about Rodgers.

    Christian Watson ran by him like the Road Runner escaping Wile E. Coyote.
    …and then dropped the pass

  12. Just like captain munnerlyn, keep bringing him back year to year at this point..he’s worth it!

  13. His podcast is the reason he wont be, if he isn’t, and he shouldnt be, because of his podcast.

    He was about the 43rd highest paid CB in the league. Yes, 42 other corners were paid higher. And most rankings have him ranked between 27-32. So…

  15. Move Pat Pete to safety, Harrison Smith looks like it is time along with Thielen to hang up the spikes.
