Adrian Peterson sets record straight, “no rush to sign” with new team

Future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson is still a free agent because he’s waiting for the right team.

Reports earlier this week stated Peterson is still a free agent because he won’t play for less than $8 million and due to his price tag no teams are willing to sign him. That is not true at all Peterson tweeted Friday night March 24.

“YOU CAN’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ OR HEAR PEOPLE,” Peterson posted before explaining that money is his last priority.

“The last thing I’m worried about is playing ball this coming season … that WILL HAPPEN! It’s not all about the money as EVERYONE is speculating here lately. You’d THINK these analysts spoke to me directly. When you don’t know what’s going on people will say anything to create or make a story! How prideful is it for me to put out … I won’t play for anything less than 8 million! But see, when you don’t know a person or what they stand for it’s easy to paint YOUR OWN PICTURE. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in! Here is something,” Peterson posted addressing the media.

Concluding his message Peterson explained what’s really going on in terms of signing up with a team as oppose to the misconception the media has spread.

“Here is something Straight from the horse’s mouth … finding the best fit & helping a team in a major way [to] win a championship is my main objective! I’m in no rush. Let me eliminate questions or speculations as to why… I believe whole heartedly my God will land me right where I need to be to accomplish what I’ve asked from him PERIOD,” Peterson concluded his message.
