Vikings fans are scared to death as they read this, lol. They can relax however, at least for now. AP is under contract until 2017 in Minnesota, but we all know star players have a tendency of getting their way when they want it. Peterson is from Texas and admitted he still thinks about playing close to home for the Cowboys! As a Giants fan myself, I never want to see that man with a star on his helmet. Hit the jump to see what he said.
During an interview with ESPN Radio, Peterson admitted he thinks of playing for Dallas, or even Houston.
You know, I’d be a liar if I said it’s something that hasn’t crossed my mind before,” Peterson said on ESPN’s SVP and Russillo. “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.”
For the sake of Vikings fans, the team better remain competitive over the next few seasons. The career of an NFL running back is not too long, even for great ones. AP is not going to want to be stuck in a losing situation for years.
