ADRIAN PETERSON RUMORS

Adrian Peterson says he's tired of 'boring' offseason work

Adrian Peterson loves the game of football, but he doesn’t love the NFL offseason and would rather not participate in training camp with the Minnesota Vikings if he can get away with it. The Vikings should take care here and possibly make an exception for the star running back. Peterson, speaking with ESPN, made it sound like his hatred for the offseason and the grind of training...

Adrian Peterson: Any player not talking SB should be traded

After putting up a surprising 2015 campaign that saw them win the NFC North, the Minnesota Vikings head into the 2016 season with championship aspirations. A team with a bunch of young talent on both sides of the ball, Minnesota has become a trendy pick to come out of the ultra-competitive NFC. A lot of this has to do with the upside some of the young players possess, including...

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. Peterson's decision to take to social media to reflect upon things probably is no coincidence. The Minnesota...

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. None, however, were as costly as his fourth-quarter fumble against Seattle...
