Adrian Peterson Wants To Play Into His 40’s

You know Adrian Peterson was paying attention when 43-year-old Tom Brady lifted another Lombardi trophy.

Just like Brady, the veteran running back says he wants to keep playing into his 40’s.

The 36-year-old Peterson told TMZ he wants to “be a 40-year-old back out there rushing for 1,500 yards and amazing people still.”  His ultimate goal?  To pass Emmitt Smith as the all-time rushing leader.

1,500 yards seems like a tall order for Peterson – he’s averaged just 768 yards per season over the last four years.

He’s currently 5th on the all-time rushing list, 449 yards behind Barry Sanders for 4th place.

How long do you think AP can keep playing?  What are the chances he passes Emmitt?
