Despite an impressive resume, which includes eight Pro Bowl appearances, veteran corner Patrick Peterson remains a free agent. Teams seem to be vary of the fact that Peterson will turn 34 in July, but the player himself believes that shouldn’t be a concern because he still has “a lot left in the tank”.

During an appearance on NFL on Fox over the weekend, Peterson said that he isn’t too worried about whether he’ll have a team for the 2024 season. His representatives have already been in contact with several teams, and he expects his market to pick up after the upcoming draft.

“I do feel like I still have a lot left in the tank and can provide, not only leadership, but playmaking ability to whatever team desires to have me on their roster,” Peterson said. “At this point and stage in my career, going through the free-agent process, I’m just taking it a day at a time.”

Peterson spent the 2023 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, inking a one-year deal at the start of the free agency. He played in all 17 games, making 16 starts, and finished the campaign with 42 tackles, 11 passes defended, and two interceptions.

Patrick Peterson previously spent the first 10 seasons of his pro career with the Arizona Cardinals before embarking on a two-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings. Besides his eight Pro Bowls, Peterson also has three First-team All-Pro nods and was selected to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.
