Patrick Peterson Fires Back at Kyler Murray
In case you missed it, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson got into some hot water with his former teammate and cornerback in Arizona, Kyler Murray. It started with comments Peterson made earlier this week on his All Things Covered podcast about Murray only caring about himself. Murray responded via Twitter soon after.
"Kyler Murray don't care about nobody but Kyler Murray"— All Things Covered (@ATCoveredPod) November 30, 2022
Patrick Peterson comments on what's going on with his former team the Cardinals, since they are always in the news.

This isn’t true…you on some weird shit @p2 you got my number, if you really felt like this as a “big bro” or “mentor” you supposed to call me and tell me, not drag me so your podcast can grow… https://t.co/MFqbMKh3la— Kyler Murray (@K1) December 1, 2022
Peterson fires back
As could’ve been expected, Patrick Peterson fired back at Kyler Murray on Thursday during the Vikings scheduled media session. During the interview, P2 somewhat doubled down on his original comments, though he dawdled through it quite a bit, adding at the end that he did not have Kyler Murray’s number, like the Cardinals’ QB had assumed
After finding it through a third party, Peterson texted Kyler. He’s yet to get a response. Stay tuned…
Murray tweeted last night that Peterson has his number and should reach out. Peterson in fact did not have his number but got one from an ex-teammate. Texted. No reply yet but looks forward to talking. Full quotes in a bit.— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) December 1, 2022
Patrick Peterson explained the comment he made about Kyler Murray. He also said today he asked a former teammate for Murray's number and sent the number a text but hadn't spoken yet with Murray directly. pic.twitter.com/feb6HHe4ua— Alec Lewis (@alec_lewis) December 1, 2022
Peterson’s comments on Kyler Murray were savage in nature but that’s, in part, why the All Things Covered podcast is successful. When the clip above begins, for example, P2 is running down his former (Murray’s current) coach, Kliff Kingsbury. Nobody is safe.
What Murray should be more concerned about is why so many around the league seem to look down on him as a below average teammate. Because where there is smoke, there is usually fire. If Kyler doesn’t want his bad teammate reputation to stick forever, it might be time for some soul searching.
