Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been in the NFL for nearly 10 years now. He still doesn’t know what is appropriate to say to the media.

The three-time rushing champion appeared on ESPN’s First Take on Thursday and wasn’t afraid to share how he really feels about his contract and future playing days.

Back around the time that the season began, we were happily helping Star Tribune mainstay Mark Craig promote his book 100 Things Vikings Fans Should Know And Do Before They Die (which is fantastic, by the way) and our “Three Questions” series seemed like the perfect opportunity to invite him back and see if anything from 2016 would’ve changed his Top 100 list had he waited just one more season.

We’ll see how he responds below, but first I invite you to catch up on our growing list of guest appearances from those kind enough to take part in the “Three Questions” series:

Lindsey Young On Her Favorite Articles, 2010 Versus 2016, & U.S. Bank Stadium
Christopher Gates On London, Those Calling For Zimmer’s Job, & Minnesota’s Most Exciting Player
Matt Falk On The 2017 NFL Draft, Adam Thielen, & Fixing The O-Line
Joe Johnson On Nick Swardson, The Defense, & Roster Upgrades

Matthew Coller On Norv Turner, Cordarrelle Patterson, And Vikings Craziness

Okay, here’s where we find out what Mark Craig has to say…

We are setting a steady pace now with our “Three Questions” series and next up is none other than Christopher Gates, someone I have a great deal of respect for as the leading man over at Daily Norseman. He was kind enough to stop by and answer three questions I had waiting for him today.

Before we get to the meat of this one, I wanted you to have a chance to catch up in case you missed any of our previous installments of “Three Questions.”

Matt Falk On The 2017 NFL Draft, Adam Thielen, & Fixing The O-Line
Joe Johnson On Nick Swardson, The Defense, & Roster Upgrades

Matthew Coller On Norv Turner, Cordarrelle Patterson, And Vikings Craziness

Okay, here we go with Christopher Gates…

Today’s “Three Questions” segment belongs to our good friend Joe Johnson over at Purple PTSD whose personality and passion for all things Vikings are things I personally find mighty enjoyable.

In case you missed the first two installments of this series, here they are:

Nik Edlund On Kalil’s Injury Impact, A Possible Vikings Draft Target, & The Play Of The Year
Matthew Coller On Norv Turner, Cordarrelle Patterson, And Vikings Craziness

Now, onto Mr. Johnson’s time to shine.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are at home watching the playoffs like the rest of us, but we’re still here (freezing our butts off) pontificating about how the Purple can reload for 2017. We open the show with a few loose thoughts: Why the Sam Bradford trade was the right move, the REAL reason the Vikings running game was so anemic this year, and why you should keep a close eye on what happens with assistant general manager George Paton.

Later in the show, Andrea Hangst (Sports on Earth, The Comeback) swings by to expand on Adrian Peterson’s future, the upcoming quarterback issue the Vikings may face, her thoughts on free agent targets Andrew Whitworth & Kevin Zeitler, and what Mike Zimmer needs to work on to become an upper echelon NFL head coach.

All that and more “We Shouldn’t Have Fired Jeff Davidson I Guess” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
