Is Adrian Peterson Expendable? Colin Cowherd Seems To Think So
September 17 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
"Adrian Peterson doesn't mean anything. He's a point a game." Wow, that's a pretty bold opinion about a guy who averages a shade below 100 yards per game...for his career. Just a quick recap, AP was the 2007 Rookie of the Year, the 2012 MVP, a six-time Pro Bowler, and a three-time first team All-Pro.
Cowherd's point, however, wasn't that Peterson isn't a good, or even great, running back. He was saying that anyone who isn't a star quarterback is nonessential, and thus, not worth following through the mud as the Vikings initially did with Peterson.
