So we mentioned that quarterback is the greatest need for the Minnesota Vikings going forward and, in addition to drafting a quarterback fairly early this May, the Vikings were probably going to have to sign a veteran to bridge the gap if their draftee isn't 100% ready to play in the NFL yet.
Well, star running back Adrian Peterson has cast his vote, and. . .well, here it is.

As The Viking Age points out, it appears that this didn't come out of nowhere. . .the NFL Network had put out this tweet earlier in the day.

I respect AP and his opinions and all. . .but I don't know if I can get behind this one. What do you all think?
