I've been wondering all summer (take a look at this Fan Post if you're wondering too) whether the Vikings were going to leave Minneapolis for Los Angeles, but I never consider even the possibility that RB Adrian Peterson would ever leave their franchise behind. They won't let him go until his time is past, and from what I saw from him this preseason, he's as strong and fast as ever.
So the news that he signed a contract extension isn't much of a surprise. It's another $100 million contract in name, but over the next 3 years, he'll be paid $40 million, which is $9 million more than the Titans just agreed to pay RB Chris Johnson over the same time period. He didn't give them a hometown discount, but he's certainly one of the few players who deserve to be paid a premium. Which running back is going to be better than him over the next three seasons?
