Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a June telephone call he would like to play for the Cowboys at the end of his tenure with the Vikings, according to an “Outside the Lines” report.
“Well, I understand, Adrian,” Jones told Peterson during the call. “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.”
Could you imagine this? Dallas Cowboys would be the happiest fans in America, and might actually return to America’s team, but the Vikings would be upset. The only problem is I don’t know if this would be considered “Tampering”. If anything it could be leaving ground work showing that Adrian Peterson is willing and ready to leave Minnesota.
