Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, one of the fastest running backs in the NFL, also is one of the fastest off the field.
Peterson has gotten his second speeding ticket in a year, according to Bob Sansavere of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Last time, Peterson was clocked at 109 miles per hour in 55-mph zone. He later pleaded guilty to 99 miles per hour, since he would have lost his license if found to have been driving at 100 miles per hour or faster.
This time around, Peterson was allegedly going 53 miles per hour in a 35-mph zone.
Given that the Vikings are about half the team they were a year ago, the difference is curiously appropriate.
