Well, this should take care of any of the concerns about Adrian Peterson wanting to go to Dallas.
“I’d give up everything,” Peterson told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “MVP, 2,000 yards in a season, Rookie of the Year. Every accomplishment I’ve ever had, I’d trade for a Super Bowl. Hands down. And that Super Bowl season, even if I couldn’t get 1,000 yards, if I could win a Super Bowl, I would trade it.”
Other than losing to the Saints in the NFC Championship Game, he hasn’t come close to that in Minnesota, even as the big numbers piled up.
And he admitted in an interview — which apparently happened before the tampering usse came up — that it was wearing on him, since his teams were 54-57-1 in the regular season.
“It’s been frustrating,” Peterson said. “Especially when you put in a lot of work and think about two-a-days. You think about [training] camp and all the time you invest into that ultimate goal, and then when you don’t even touch the playoffs or you’re out in the first week, it’s tough.
“That’s hard on anyone. So it’s been tough, but that’s why we made the switches. That’s why we brought in guys to help change that.”
He’s since said he wanted to retire a Viking, though that might not get him any closer to his goal than retiring a Cowboy would.
