Minnesota Vikings will not be returning this year, and he might nit return ever again. According to him, he is contemplating retirement. He might leave for the Real Estate world or leave to run in the Olympics?
“I’ve considered retiring from the NFL,” Peterson told ESPN. “I still made $8 million this year. I’ve thought about getting back into the real estate [business in Texas] I’m already in. That’s something I’ve been interested in, something I’m involved in. I’ve thought about getting back into that. I’ve thought about going after the Olympics — you only live once. It might be time for me to pursue that, as well. I love playing football, don’t get me wrong, but this situation is deeper than that. For me, it’s like, ‘Why should I continue to be a part of an organization or a business that handles players the way they do? Making money off the field anyway, why not continue to pursue that [Olympic] dream and pursue other dreams and hang up the cleats?’”
