  • Adrian Peterson Wants To Play Until He's 40

    Detroit Lions impending free-agent running back Adrian Peterson said that he wants to play until he's 40 years old and wants to break Emmitt Smith's all-time rushing record while also winning a Super Bowl ring. "I'm just going to keep playing, I'm going to keep playing, trying to chase a championship," Peterson said. "And God's willing, within the process of doing that I'm able to catch Emmitt and pass him." Peterson is heading into his age-36 season and still needs 3,536 yards to pass Smith. He'll have to average 884 yards per season for the next four years to break Smith's mark, which would require nearly 200 carries per year at his career average of 4.6 yards per carry. It's unlikely to happen, but AD continues to truck along and will look for a situation that can provide him with as many touches as he can handle in 2021. It's unlikely that he'll find a gig as anything more than a complementary back, making him a very low-ceiling and unattractive fantasy RB.
