Legacy by Patrick Peterson | NFL (theplayerstribune.com)When I think about the beginning, you want to know what I really think about?
Rashad Johnson and Larry, who’s been there forever. Adrian Wilson, Darnell Dockett, Joey Porter, Richard Marshall. All of those guys were way older than me and had more years in the league under their belt. They took me under their wing and showed me the ropes of how to be a pro — how to study, how to practice, how to come to work, how to handle your business.
My journey starts there with those guys, especially Darnell and Joey — on my ass.
I was on the same side of the ball as them, so those guys were always on me. Just cracking jokes and giving me a hard time. That’s how they showed love. But they really looked out for me.
