Your Adrian Peterson Jerseys Are Safe After All

If you'll recall, a while back we talked about how Adrian Peterson started a bit of a kerfluffle on the Twitter when he mentioned that he was thinking about changing his uniform number from the 28 that we've all grown to know and love.

Well, apparently that change isn't going to happen. . .but not because Peterson wasn't seriously considering it.

But because it would have cost him too much.

See, if a player switches jersey numbers, they have to pay Reebok a refund for all of the jerseys that have their current number on it. It's similar to what happened with Chad Ochocinco when he changed his name from Chad Johnson back in 2008. Though he had legally changed his name to Chad Ochocinco, he played his games during the 2008 season with "C. Johnson" on his jersey to avoid having to shell out the money to Reebok.

It appears that someone told our favorite running back that it would cost him $1 million to switch numbers. I guess that was enough to make him decide that 28 isn't such a bad number after all.
