Pittsburgh Steelers star cornerback Patrick Peterson has been open about his willingness to be a mentor rookies like Joey Porter Jr. and Cory Trice.

Naturally, it bugs him to see other veterans in the league not as gracious with their time and knowledge as him.

Speaking on an episode of the All Things Covered podcast, Peterson took aim at Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill for not wanting to mentor former rookie quarterback Malik Willis.

“I don’t know what it was, not mentor, not give info, to the younger QB,” Peterson said. “Man, like we’ve got so much information that these guys haven’t seen. Why would we wanna keep that from them? Why would we wanna hinder their career on maybe something that we can give them? Not to backtrack, that kind of rubbed me the wrong way.”

Tannehill has yet to comment on Peterson’s shot across the bow. But shortly after Willis was drafted in 2022, he clarified the comments.

“We’re going to continue to push each other, to learn from each other in the QB room, encourage each other as this thing goes forward,” Tannehill said, according to Nick Shook, “We’re all here for one goal. My primary focus is to win football games as everyone in this building.”
