This is the preacher in Ray Lewis talking, not the businessman, but here is his quote courtesy of Larry Brown Sports.

“Me going out on that field tonight and me looking at Adrian Peterson’s eyes, it’s something that I want to bring up that I don’t want to see happen to this young kid. Because we saw it happen to a great one one time before, which was Barry Sanders,”

“If he keeps going down this road, he’s going to have to make a business decision just like Barry Sanders made a while ago. He plays the game with so much passion and so much love, and he plays it so hard … and to do him like that, to surround him with a team like that … I don’t like to see great people go through things like that.”

Adrian Peterson chose to sign an extension with the Vikings, so I don’t think anyone should shed any tears over the fact he has to play with Christian Ponder and other rag tag quarterbacks.

Speaking of his contract, he has over $55 million left on it, so I doubt he will be hanging out the cleats any time soon.

    Stop twisting his words Robert, you hater. Making a “business decision” regarding his future with the Vikings, not football.
