Adrian Peterson believes it will be the mental side of the game that causes him to retire, not the physical.
Peterson is 6,681 yards shy of Emmitt Smith's all-time rushing record. One of the best athletes of his generation, Peterson is confident his body will hold up. He's less confident he'll be able to stick with the grind. "Training camp, going through the grind, OTAs and all that — that will definitely be the deciding factor. Physically, body-wise, I'll be good. It's just mentally — like with OTAs, I'm out there practicing, I'm going, I'm putting in work. But it's so repetitive that it's more suited toward the young guys and getting them into the system. It gets kind of boring." Despite Peterson's words, it would be surprising if he didn't play at least 2-3 more years. Jun 21 - 7:59 PM
