Legendary NFL running back Adrian Peterson has not only said he still wants to play football this year, but has also mentioned the teams he would like to play for.
Peterson, 37, made the comments to TMZ Sports while training for his famous boxing match against Le’Veon Bell, which takes place in LA this Saturday.
Not only did Peterson say he still hopes to play in the NFL this season, but listed the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers as among his options.

While playing for the Vikings, Peterson was named to seven Pro Bowls and seven All-Pro teams
“There are a few teams,” Peterson said on Wednesday. Buffalo Bills would be a good team. The Rams, I don’t know what they need to run back. San Fran would be beautiful. There are a lot of teams that would make it way into the play-offs that I’ve been thinking about.”
Peterson last played for the Seahawks, after splitting time between them and the Tennessee Titians over the course of the year. He failed to impress with either team.
He is most famous for his dominant 10-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings, being named to seven Pro Bowls, along with winning a wealth of awards.

The man once undeniably regarded as the greatest running back in the NFL has not achieved the same success anywhere else since leaving the Vikings.
Peterson has played for seven NFL teams in the five years since he left Minnesota. Only in one of those seasons did he exceed 1,000 yards and that was in 2018 during his first season with the now Washington Commanders.
Anyway, his focus for now remains on his upcoming fight with Bell, which is scheduled for Saturday at the Banc of California Stadium.
