When running backs hit 30, they normally begin to decline. However, Adrian Peterson feels he’ll be even better in his 30’s.
“People say, ‘Oh, running back hits 34, 35 (and he’s done). When you get to 30, you go down.’ I don’t believe that,” Peterson recently told USA TODAY Sports’ Tom Pelissero. “I believe I’m just now here in my prime. I believe these next five or six years — or however long I decide to play — it’s going to be the same production and I’m going to do even better than I did before in my 20s.”
It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for Peterson.
