Adrian Peterson has chimed in on who he thinks should quarterback the Vikings in 2014.
The man on Adrian’s mind is former Falcons and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
Adrian tweeted this out late Wednesday evening:
@MikeVick would intently make the vikings a playoff team!

“Intently” is supposed to be “instantly.” Adrian was clearly inspired by this NFL Network tweet from earlier in the evening:

Vick will be a free agent come March 11th, and the Vikings can certainly bid on him if they choose.
If Adrian has any say in the matter, they will choose to put in a bid.
I don’t know however if Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer are really looking for Adrian’s input on this particular rather important matter. I know Adrian has said he wants to have more say in personnel moves, but letting Adrian pick the QB?
I think Norv Turner is the guy you want to listen to on this.
It’s nice that Adrian is out there stumping for his friend, I guess. But I have a hunch the Vikings would prefer he just keep his tweets to himself on this one.
