If this is the end of the road for Peterson, it’s been a hell of a run for the legendary running back, and his place in the Football Hall of Fame is 100% secured.
He’s without a doubt one of the most talented players to ever pick up a football, and you’re kidding yourself if you think differently.

Now, at the age of 36, he’s headed to injured reserve. He already beat the odds by playing running back in the NFL at his age.
There’s a very real possibility he’s played his last snap of football.

No matter what, Peterson had a hell of a run in the NFL, and he should be proud as all hell. The dude was a weapon in his prime, and he was one of the most exciting players to ever play the game.
