The Cardinals’ secondary took a hit Wednesday when cornerback Patrick Peterson decided to sign with the Minnesota Vikings after 10 seasons with Arizona, according to multiple reports.

Peterson and the Vikings agreed to a one-year deal, ESPN and the NFL Network reported. The deal is reportedly worth $10 million. Minnesota has yet to announce the deal.

The Cardinals selected Peterson with the No. 5 pick of the 2011 NFL Draft. He played all 16 games for the Cardinals nine of 10 seasons as he only played in 10 during the 2019 season.

Peterson put up incredible numbers for Arizona since he stepped on the field in the red and white. He was a First-Team All-Pro selection during his rookie season in 2011 when he had 64 total tackles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions in 16 games.

He would earn two more All-Pro selections before leaving Arizona and finish eight Pro Bowl selections. He was also named to the All-2010s Team when the Pro Football Hall of Fame was celebrating another decade. Other names on the All-2010s list included Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack.
