Peterson Done With #28?

On a silly little side note (hey, Vikings news is pretty slow right now), yesterday via Twitter, Adrian Peterson announced, “So I’m thinking about changing my number! #28 has been good to me, but I think its time [to] switch it up!” Peterson then went further to think aloud, “I was thinking 21 or 23!”

No one is quite sure what sparked Peterson to come out and say such a silly thing. Maybe rehab has him going stir crazy… Regardless, Peterson immediately received tons of responses from fans exclaiming that he should definitely not change his number (not that the Vikings or the NFL would allow such a thing considering #28 is definitely the Vikings best selling jersey).

Personally, if Peterson, for some ridiculous reason, did happen to change his number, I think it would definitely have to be #24. What better number for someone who is known as “All-Day?”

  1. It just hit me those numbers belong to Asher Allen and Cedric Griffin. Maybe his subtle way of saying cut that dead weight? Nah, just me having fun though. Griffin did have a nice pick at the end of the season and poor Asher shouldn’t be seeing more time at anything other than dimeback.

  2. That was the first thing I thought of. I think he’s just going stir crazy, it would cost him a pantload to buy up all those 28 jerseys that are still in stores across the country. I’m guessing Allen and Griffin don’t appreciate him throwing their #’s out there though. I like the “24” thought.
