Adrian Peterson signs biggest deal ever for a running back

Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings The biggest deal ever given to a running back was awarded to Adrian Peterson today. The terms were a seven-year $100 million contract with $36 million guaranteed. The deal was $6 million more than Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson. With his running style and the decline of play of running backs once they reach the age of 30, it will be tough for Peterson to play out his contract for he will be 33 years old by the end of his deal. He has definitely earned it and will consistently be one of the top backs in the NFL for years to come.
