Wyche: Peterson in perfect position
The Minnesota Vikings star, however, said he doesn't believe Johnson's deal will have a bearing on how much he's paid in his next contract -- or when that deal might be done. Peterson has started the final year of his rookie contract with the Vikings after choosing not to hold out during training camp.
Johnson ended his holdout with the Titans on Thursday and agreed to an extension worth as much as $53.5 million over four years, including $30 million guaranteed. Peterson and Johnson have engaged in friendly trash talk in recent years about who is the better runner, but Peterson said Thursday he and Johnson are "two different players in two different situations."
