Looks like Vikings fans aren’t the only ones that want to see Adrian Peterson in a Super Bowl.
Recently, ESPN did an anonymous survey of over 320 NFL players. Included on that poll, was a question about which NFL player who has never been to a Super Bowl would you like to see in one.
The results were interesting. There were several votes for players based on many different criteria: age, talent, and other factors. Here are the final percentages of each player who received votes:
Adrian Peterson (Minnesota Vikings): 18.4%
- Tony Gonzalez (Atlanta Falcons): 17.5%
- Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions): 8.1%
- Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks): 4.7%
- Andre Johnson (Houston Texans): 4.4%
- Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles): 3.4%
ESPN asked Peterson how he felt about the results of this vote.
“That’s pretty cool,” Peterson said. “It feels good. I guess guys are able to see the passion that I play with, the desire I play with, and they respect it enough to make that type of statement. It says a lot, and it means a lot.”
Hopefully Peterson, the Vikings, and Vikings fans will all get to see Peterson play in the big game. Only time will tell.
