Can Adrian Peterson rush for 1000 yards at the age of 36 or 37? He thinks so…

The most rushing yards ever gained by a player at the age of 37 years old was Marcus Allen, who barely topped 500 yards on the ground.  Adrian Peterson the Vikings running back is in great shape and feels he will be able to be an elite running back until the age of 36 or 37 years old.  

“I don’t see the end,” Peterson told Peter King of TheMMQB.com. “Straight up and honest with you, I feel like, and I don’t know if I’ll do this, because I feel like once my mind tells me, You know what—I’m not loving this game anymore, I’ll walk away whenever that time is. But I honestly feel I can play this game until I am 36 or 37 years old. And at a high level.”

If he is able to hit 1000 yards he will be the first player in NFL History to pull it off. If he can run until he is 37 and still have an impact on the game, it would be amazing, remember Fred Jackson is the oldest running back now in the NFL and he is only 34.
