Patrick Peterson Will Play CB

Patrick Peterson had his first press conference today after being acquired by the Vikings as a free agent. Unlike many such press conferences, there was actually news on a number of things that emerged.

Patrick Peterson will Play Cornerback

There had been speculation, including my own, as to whether Peterson would play cornerback or safety with his new team. Peterson answered that decisively: “My position will be cornerback for sure.”

Speculation began when Peterson said he would be open to move to safety during a recent podcast, and some analysts suggesting he could make the transition like a Charles Woodson and be a good safety.
