Keep in mind that Peterson is a LOLB, not a middle LB. Wong had 62 tackles last year. Peterson also had 7 sacks and 2 INT's--he is very good.

Compare to some other pro-bowl OLB's:

LaVar Arrington 88 tkl, 6 sacks, 0 INT's
Dexter Coakley 96 tkl, 1 sack, 1 INT
Peter Boulware 58 tkl, 8.5 sacks, 0 INT's

He isn't out of his mind thinking he deserves to be one of the top paid LB's. Don't understand why there is a prohibition on negotiating with tagged players though.
