ADRIAN PETERSON RUMORS

Adrian Peterson says he is in the best shape of his life

Minnesota Vikings All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson proved naysayers wrong when he returned in 2015 from a year-long suspension. He led the league with 1,485 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns at the age of 30. This season, the sky could be the limit for AP who claims he is in even better physical shape than he was last season. Peterson turned 31 in March for those wondering. When...

Adrian Peterson: Vikings 'have a good chance to win it this year'

The Minnesota Vikings have been on a climb ever since the 2013 season in which they finished 5-10-1. They went 7-9 in 2014, and last season, the team improved to 11-5, and lost in the Wild Card round to the Seattle Seahawks after a missed Blair Walsh field goal. This season, there’s plenty of room for optimism, but nobody might be more optimistic than running back Adrian Peterson...

Adrian Peterson reflects upon his recent past on Instagram

It has almost been one year ago to the day that Adrian Peterson was reinstated by the NFL after his entire 2014 campaign was derailed when child abuse charges were filed against him in September of that year, a development that ultimately and effectively ended his season.

Adrian Peterson admits he needs to work on ball security

Adrian Peterson has affirmed what everyone else already knew: he needs to work on his ball security. Peterson has long been plagued by fumbles. No running back fumbled more than the Vikings star did this season, and it’s not the first time he’s been at the wrong end of the leaderboard in that department.

Adrian Peterson held out of practice with back injury

The Minnesota Vikings are hoping Adrian Peterson will be a much bigger factor against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday than he was the last time the two teams played, but there is some concern that Peterson may be playing at less than 100 percent health.

Adrian Peterson 65 yards short of $1 million bonus

When Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson recorded 67 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 17, he finished the season with a league-high total of 1,485 rushing yards.
