Adrian Peterson’s resurgence at 30 years-old continues, as the Minnesota Vikings running back has been named to the Associated Press All-Pro Team for the fourth time in his nine-year career. For the first time since 2012, Peterson is a unanimous selection, with the 50 voters all placing Peterson on their ballots. His inclusion comes after a season in which Peterson became only the third running back over 30 to win the league’s rushing title.

This season, Peterson rushed 327 times for 1,485 yards, averaging 4.5 yards per carry and 92.8 yards per game. He scored 11 touchdowns on the ground and surpassed exceptions after missing 15 games in 2014 while serving a league-mandated suspension. In addition to his selection to the AP All-Pro team, Peterson was also selected to his seventh Pro Bowl and spoke to Craig Peters of Vikings.com about the accolades. “It’s always humbling for me to be recognized in different ways,” he said. “I realize how blessed I am and we are as a team and just continue to take it in stride one day at a time.”
