Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Compared To Some Freak Athletes Of The Past

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is a freak type athlete. He can do so many things on the football field and his new head coach noticed his talent immediately and quickly constructed offensive plays to use the Pro Bowl cornerback on offense. He is a ridiculous athlete. Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim compared him to some of the biggest star athletes of the past:

“From an ability standpoint, I’ve never seen anything like him. He’s the closest thing in the league to a Bo Jackson, a Deion Sanders,” Keim recently told Robert Klemko of TheMMQB.com. “I’ve seen him stand on the field flat-footed and throw the ball 65-70 yards. He goes out to practice as a wideout, and runs a 10- and 15-yard out as well as anyone on our team. His value to our team is really unparalleled.” – NFL.com

That is a huge expectation to live up to. He has to do a little better job at locking down the top talents in the league and then everyone else around the league will start to give Peterson that same label.
