There’s officially no love lost in the mind of newly minted New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings, and he’s relishing the upcoming opportunity to the stick it to his old team when the two face on opening night in September.
Peterson, in an interview posted on the Saints’ official website jokingly said he’ll be out for “revenge” on September 11th in Minneapolis.
“It’s going to be fun to go against those guys so I can let them know [when] I was doing that talking, telling them, ‘Hey, I’ll hit you guys for 150 or 200 yards,’ that I wasn’t just talking,” he said. “They’ll see.”
“It’s going to be exciting,” he said. “You know, it’s just ironic. When the schedule came out and I saw that, I was like, ‘Wow, this is meant to be.’ So many great memories down there in Minnesota. Great fan base. They supported me through everything, throughout my career, so just to embrace the love once I get there will be exciting.”
