Adrian Peterson wants to retire a Viking: ‘That would be the ultimate goal’

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had his troubles with the team in 2014 and 2105, but now with his personal issues seemingly behind him, the one day Hall of Fame rusher says he wants to finish his career in the Twin City.

“They were talking about Kobe being the only guy (in NBA history) to play for one franchise for like 20 years,’’ Peterson said, via TwinCities.com.

“And I remember looking at that like, ‘Man, wow, that’d be amazing to be able to do that.’ So that’s what I hope, man, is to finish here.’’

“That would be amazing,’’ Peterson sad. “That would be the ultimate goal.’’

“We got a great coaching staff, great team, young team, great fans here, so why not?’’ he said.

“The coach is the main thing.’’
