ESPN reports Adrian Peterson called Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in June to tell him he was interested in playing for Dallas "at the end of his tenure with the Vikings."
"Well, I understand, Adrian," Jones reportedly told AD. "I'd like that, too ... Well, I love your story. I love your daddy's story. I've always respected what you've been about. I've always been a fan of yours." Peterson is from Palestine, Texas, which is two hours southeast of Dallas. It's unclear if the call constituted tampering, but Jones believes it does not. Now 29, Peterson is signed with the Vikings through 2017, but is unlikely to make it to the end of his deal.
