Adrian Peterson has been a harsh opponent of players in the NFL using PED’s to get ahead. Many wondered how he recovered from a severe knee injury to come back and have one of the greatest seasons a running back has ever had in NFL history. Well if you let him tell it, Juicing on Jesus is what helped him. Confused? Hit the jump.
AP said a Lions linebacker last season asked him what he is using, either joking or seriously and Peterson said he replied with this:
“I think the one thing I’ll always remember from the field last year happened in Detroit, early in the season. One of the linebackers came up to me—I don’t want to say who it was—and he said, ‘Adrian, what are you taking? What juice you using? I gotta get me some of that.’ I said, ‘I’m juicing on the blood of Jesus. Faith is what got me to this point.’ So the Lions came to Minnesota later in the season. That same linebacker came to me and said: ‘I appreciate you saying that. You opened my eyes.’ That was pretty cool.”
Peterson has always been clean. Let’s hope it stays that way.
