Arizona Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson Talks HyperIce, Investing, Life After NFL
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been named a Pro Bowler during his first five seasons in the NFL and is arguably one of the league’s best defensive backs.
An Under Armour endorser, the 26-year-old Peterson recently gave a $1 million donation to LSU’s football program, is not shy about his “impeccable” style and during the current season, has the No. 8-selling defensive jersey at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Prior to the Cardinals hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Peterson shared his thoughts with SportTechie on being a shareholder in HyperIce, a company that sells high-performance and recovery products. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla. native also discussed his investing decisions, other tech-focused companies he is involved with and where he sees himself in 15 years. The below interview has been edited for clarity and brevity.
"Also, I have great team around me. This particular opportunity was brought to me by my brand manager Alex Guerrero, of Elite Sports Society. He is a former NFL athlete/entrepreneur and understands that when I get involved in something I have to be passionate about it as both a businessman and an athlete. It’s great to have someone like Alex in my corner that sees eye-to-eye with me."
