Adrian Peterson still runs a sub-4.5 40-yard dash

Adrian Peterson is a freak of nature. You already knew that after watching him return from a torn ACL and rush for a career-best 2,097 yards in 2012. So maybe this story about him won’t surprise you, but that makes it no less impressive. ESPN’s Ben Goessling wrote a feature on Peterson’s offseason workout routine that was published on Tuesday.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
