So it turns out it was Patrick Peterson on NFL Network’s top 100 list of current players tonight, landing at No. 55 (as guessed the other day.) He admitted he was only on the list because of his punt returns, but hoped that was a short-term thing.
“I believe it’s definitely less about my cornerback play right now,” Peterson said. But I’ve been working so hard this offseason, I honestly can’t wait to face another opponent.”
In the video talking about Peterson’s place, teammates Adrian Wilson and Larry Fitzgerald both reiterated Peterson’s hard work and potential to be an elite cornerback in the league, as they did when the trio were named to the Pro Bowl last season. In the meantime, Peterson was grateful to already make the list, considering it is fellow NFL players who vote.
“That’s definitely special that I have the respect from my peers around the league, to consider me in the top 100,” Peterson said. “It gives me something to work on through the rest of my career. I want to get into the top 10.”
