There are very few players in the NFL that are known for extreme trash talk, but also back it up with their play on the field.
Ever since joining the league, Patrick Peterson has been a dominant cornerback.
Peterson spent the first ten years of his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals before a brief, two-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings.
Recently, Peterson signed a deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, adding a valuable piece to their secondary.
After he was signed, Peterson had a brief message to Steelers fans.

“Let’s work, Steelers Nation!” Peterson said.
Even though Peterson will be 33 years old to begin the 2023 regular season, he has proven that he still has what it takes to impact the league.
Last year, he achieved a career-high in tackles, with 66.
He added 15 defended passes and five interceptions, which were both close to his career highs for those metrics as well.
The Steelers already have a strong defensive unit, led by T.J. Watt, Devin Bush, and Minkah Fitzpatrick.
After a 2022 season that saw the Steelers miss the playoffs, adding Peterson is a move that instantly makes this team better.
This is great news for the Steelers, given the difficulty of their division.
Even though they finished the 2022 campaign with a winning record, the Steelers ended as third in the AFC North.
The Cincinnati Bengals won the division with a 12-4 record, and the Baltimore Ravens finished in second, with a 10-7 record.
Lamar Jackson’s status with the Ravens is still in the air.
With that in mind, the Steelers could find themselves in second place in the AFC North.
Peterson is a great building block to help them do so.NEXT: Son Of Steelers Legend Declares Himself The Best CB In Draft
