It’s crazy that Adrian Peterson is 36-years-old and still playing in the NFL as a running back. How many guys have made it in that position at that age?
The answer isn’t many at all. If you’re 36 and still playing running back, you’re a bit of a unicorn.

Yet, Peterson is still trying to use every drop of gas in the tank before hanging his cleats up for good and he now finds himself in Seattle.
Will he have a big enough impact to save the season for the Seahawks? Most definitely not, but that doesn’t mean he can’t put up some stats while there.
It’s honestly hard for me to put in words how impressive it is he’s playing RB in the NFL at 36. It’s mind-boggling.

Hopefully, he finds some success on the field with Russell Wilson before deciding to call it a career.
