For the Arizona Cardinals some things are going to look quite a bit different in 2021.

For the first time since 2010 Patrick Peterson will not be on the team.

The Cardinals future Hall of Fame cornerback took a one-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings for $10 million.

He is onto the next portion of his career, the tail end of a brilliant career and it won’t be as a Cardinal for life.

That is something that the Cardinals have talked about before, but clearly that has changed as the Cardinals will now look to find a replacement and let’s be honest, an upgrade from Peterson.

Peterson played 10 seasons for the Cardinals and in those 10 seasons he has played in and started 154 games.

He has 28 career interceptions and returned one for a touchdown. He has four career punt return touchdowns as well.

He was one of the best draft picks in Cardinals history. It’s bittersweet, but good luck to Peterson in the next part of his career.
