During an appearance on the “SVP & Russillo” show Vikings running back Adrian Peterson admitted that he’s thought about playing for another team.
You know, I’d be a liar if I said it’s something that hasn’t crossed my mind before,” Peterson said, via ESPN.com.
Peterson admitted he wouldn’t mind playing for the Texans or Cowboys.
“But I’ve also said to myself it would be so amazing to be one of those players who stays with one team his entire career, it would be good if I could do that. But being from Texas, I’ve always wondered, wow, it would be cool to play in Dallas, to play back home. Or to play in Houston.”
Peterson continued, “I’d be lying to say it didn’t mean something, anytime you play at home and play against the Cowboys, the team I grew up watching and liking,” Peterson said on Oct. 31. “My hometown’s an hour and change from there. It’s still another game, but then again, having family there — Dallas is where I lost my brother [who was killed by a drunken driver when Adrian Peterson was 7], as well. We stayed there for a few years before we moved back to Palestine. So, you know, it’s always good to go back there.”
As big as Peterson’s contract is, I can’t imagine him playing anywhere else right now because of how important he is to Minnesota’s offense.
