Adrian Peterson says thank you to Vikings fans
(KMSP) - Former Vikings runningback Adrian Peterson is saying thank you to all his fans as he prepares to join his new team, the New Orleans Saints.
Last month, Peterson signed a two-year deal worth $7 million with the Saints, according to reports.
Peterson tweeted out a short audio clip, showing his love for Vikings nation.
"As I embark on this new journey, I just want to take this time to thank all my Vikings fans who have been supportive for a decade plus," he said. "You all have been the greatest fans anyone could ask for and I truly appreciate all the love and support throughout the years. Also, I'd like to thank the Wilf family and the Vikings organization for such a great opportunity. I'm truly blessed and forever indebted. It was a great journey and thank you again."
Peterson was with the Vikings for 10 seasons, but sat out much of last season with a torn meniscus. He is the Vikings' all-time leading rusher with 11,747 yards and 97 touchdowns.
