As passed along by PFT, originally from KFAN radio, Adrian Peterson does indeed have money on his mind. At least to a certain extent.
After somewhat squashing speculation that his absence from minicamp was related to some unhappiness with his contract, Peterson said today that he wants “to at least talk about” a new contract.
This shouldn’t come as a real surprise to anyone, as running backs that run with such reckless abandon tend to have shortened careers. With his contract set to expire after the 2011 season, it only makes sense for Peterson to have long term security as a goal.
Don’t expect too much to happen on this front, however, for quite some time.
