'Born leader' Peterson guides Vikings D, to visit Cards next

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) As a free agent for the first time in his career this offseason, Patrick Peterson put the Minnesota Vikings high on his wish list with an eagerness to play for head coach Mike Zimmer's defense.

For the Vikings, Peterson was more of a need than a want.

They sought not only to upgrade their starting cornerbacks but to bring in some experience that was badly missing last year.
