Adrian Peterson: “Accusing Me Of Using PEDs Is A Compliment”


Adrian Peterson made us all believe he was Superman with the way he bounced back from tearing his knee to shreds.

Peterson’s MVP type recovery has led to some questions about him and performance enhancing drugs.  Peterson for his part says he doesn’t know who uses PEDs, and doesn’t want to know.

When it comes to questions about whether he’s clean or not, Peterson told USA Today that “he takes all PED accusations as a compliment.”

“Seriously. Especially with the amount of work I put in,” Peterson said. “Guys say that to me, or if I hear someone saying that — it makes me feel good.

“When you know you don’t do it, and someone’s saying you do, you’re like, ‘Wow. They think I’m on HGH? I’m doing that good? Well, hoo! Thank you, Jesus!’ It’s a compliment. I don’t get mad about it at all.”

Well I guess Peterson told you guys.

Seriously though, we won’t really know who’s clean, and who isn’t until the NFLPA approves testing for Human Growth Hormone as well.
