Vikings’ Patrick Peterson drops a truth bomb that will make Aaron Rodgers’ life harder

The Minnesota Vikings were the only NFC North team to give the Green Bay Packers trouble during Aaron Rodgers’ career. Rodgers is 22-5 against the Chicago Bears and 18-6 against the Detroit Lions. But he’s only 14-10-1 in his career against the Vikings. Minnesota hopes to finally retake the division this year. If that happens, their defense will have to keep finding ways to slow Rodgers down.

Well, if cornerback Patrick Peterson’s talent rating is half as good as his ability to play football, maybe they could do it.

After practice on Wednesday, the Vikings cornerback addressed the growth of rookie defensive back Andrew Booth Jr.

“He (Booth Jr.) looked pretty good. He moved very well. It looks like he’s in good health, so we’ll see if he can continue to build on that. I love how instinctive it is. He is very quick on the line of scrimmage. He’s going to cause trouble here soon,” Peterson said, as quoted by St. Paul Pioneer Press writer Chris Tomasson.

On the first day of training camp, Booth Jr. picked up Vikings QB Kirk Cousins. This should definitely help the development of Booth Jr. training against Justin Jefferson.

Peterson started his career making the Pro Bowl the first eight seasons. That includes being named an All-Pro First Team three times. Fathers time caught up with him, however, prompting the Vikings to draft Booth Jr. They selected him with the 42nd overall pick (2nd round) in the 2022 NFL Draft out of Clemson.

He is expected to play an important role in his rookie season. It won’t be long to find out as the Vikings and Packers play Week 1.
