Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson said he wants to retire in Minnesota after an ESPN report said otherwise.
News broke Thursday, Peterson reached out to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about ending his career in Dallas. Peterson issued a statement on Thursday after ESPN reported that he asked Jones about playing in Dallas. Peterson says it "was a casual conversation between NFL colleagues in which I never indicated I wanted to leave the Vikings. I have always said I understand the NFL is a business but that I would love to retire as a Viking."
While the story has fans and talk radio buzzing, there could be serious repercussions for the Cowboys' owner. Jones may have broke NFL tampering rules.
