Vikings running back Adrian Peterson previously has mused publicly about finishing his football career in his home state of Texas. According to ESPN’s Outside The Lines, Peterson told Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in June that Peterson wants to end his career in Dallas.

“Well, I understand, Adrian,” Jones told Peterson by phone, via Don Van Atta, Jr. of ESPN. “I’d like that, too. . . . Well, I love your story. I love your daddy’s story. I’ve always respected what you’ve been about. I’ve always been a fan of yours.”

The quotes were “recounted” as part of a Jones profile, with the kind of specificity of words and sounds which suggests that Van Atta kept good notes, or possibly even had his tape recorder running.

“Well, we’ll see what we can do, if we can make that happen,” Jones told Peterson, via ESPN. “Hmm hmm. . . . I’d like that, too. . . . Well, we’re talking pig Latin here, but let’s see if we can do that. . . . We’re talking pig Latin here, but let’s see what we can do about that. OK, Adrian, thanks.”

Maybe the Vikings can finally get even for that Hershcel Walker trade?

Do we want that to happen? I mean, the Cowboys pounded us often in the 90s thanks to the raw material acquired from that trade. Do you want to have to deal with that twice a year for a decade?

The Cowboys are loaded at RB. Peterson's dreaming if he thinks they lift a finger to get him.

I've always felt badly for Adrian Peterson.
Although he is not quite a Barry Sanders (no one is), the circumstances are similar.

Peterson's talents have been and are being squandered with his being trapped in Vikings hell.

The fact that he seems like a nice guy makes it even worse. Kinda the same way I felt about Walter Payton. I mean if the guy is a world class A-hole who gives a sh*t, stay on that crapfest of a team, it serves you right. When nice guys don't get the chance it does make you feel a bit bad for them.

Of course I get over it knowing that even with a superstar like Peterson the vikings can't accomplish sh*t so it makes me feel much better.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

I don't think the vikings are going to be lifting a finger to get rid of him either and they have him for another 3 years (I think) so it doesn't really matter. By the time his current deal is up the Cowboys situation may be different so who knows. Of course by then I doubt anyone would be talking about a Herschel Walker type deal even if they would be now (which I highly doubt)
