EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Adrian Peterson has the NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year awards under his belt, could he be angling for the Defensive Player of the Year award too?
Peterson proved to be nearly unstoppable on the offensive side of the ball on his way to winning the NFL MVP last season and he's set his goals even higher this season as he tries to break the single-season rushing record.
Peterson, preparing for his first preseason game action upcoming Sunday, had a little fun in Monday's practiceby going through some defensive drills.
Asked afterward about participating with Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and the other defensive lineman, Peterson joked: "I can definitely see myself coming off the edge. I don't know if there are too many tackles that can put their hands on me."
Does Peterson think Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier would ever give him the chance?
"He would probably start laughing, just like I did," Peterson said.
In fun, Peterson lined up with the defensive...
