Adrian Peterson has agreed to a three year extension through 2009. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
While I am certainly glad he signed, I am curious as to why. Based on his stats he could easily get a backup role somewhere. Why he would be happy as a backup is either a sense of loyalty or maybe he has some inside info on TJ finding a new home.
