Patrick Peterson isn’t a fan of Sports Illustrated’s Tom Brady cover

Aug 29, 2017, 5:24 PM | Updated: 11:24 pm

Sports Illustrated featured David Johnson on one version of its NFL preview edition. The Cardinals running back appears looking too powerful for the miniaturized defenders clinging to him.

The same design idea goes for the East Coast edition of the magazine featuring Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Except in this one, it’s a tiny Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson gripping Brady’s foot, attempting to make the tackle.

P2 doesn’t have the best relationship with Sports Illustrated, it turns out. He’s been on the negative end of a cover photo before.

Sports Illustrated responded to Peterson’s complaint and went for the throat.

Peterson wasn’t the only one underwhelmed by making the front cover as a sidenote to Brady.

Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas made an appearance in Brady’s underarm, and the team’s Twitter account poked a little fun at him for it.
