Father Time is undefeated but Adrian Peterson doesn't think it applies to him. The 29-year-old running back is confident that age won't slow him down.
The former Sooner and current Minnesota Vikings running back scoffed a reporter Thursday when asked if he was entering the downslope of his career.
"They said 'Oh, ACL, you'll never come back from it,' " Peterson said. "So, it is what it is. It doesn't apply to me. I have a totally different mindset, mind frame."
Peterson said with a laugh: "I was talking to (Brett) Favre. 40 sounds good, you know?"
