Adrian Lewis Peterson is an American football running back for the Washington Commanders of the NFL. Peterson was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2007’s NFL Draft.

Early Life

Adrian Lewis Peterson was born in Palestine, Texas on the 21st of March, 1985. Peterson is the son to Bonita Brown and Nelson Peterson, who also were star athletes in college. His father, Nelson, was a shooting guard for Idaho.

His mother, Bonita, was a three-time Texas state champion at Westwood High School and attended the University of Houston on an athletic scholarship as a sprinter.



Adrian Peterson began his career when he entered the 2007 NFL Draft. His early college injuries did pose a slight concern for a few teams. Peterson was chosen as the first running back the same year by the Minnesota Vikings.

He later signed a contract worth 40.5 million dollars and made a phenomenal performance at the 2008 NFL Pro Bowl.

In 2009, Peterson made it to the ‘AP All-Pro’ team. He has a tremendous 25 carries, 180 yards and 3 touchdowns against Cleveland Browns. Peterson led his team and defeated the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately, they lost against the Saints at the NFL Championship.

The following year, Peterson made a rushing record of 5000 yards and went to represent his team in the ‘Pro Bowl’. He was known after that to be one of NFL Top 100 Players of 2011. The same year, the Vikings renewed their contract with Peterson paying him 96 million dollars, making him the highest paid running back in NFL.

In 2015, he opened the season with a knee injury and underwent a surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The same year, he made the active roster and finished six carries against the Indianapolis Colts.

Despite earning almost $100 million dollars throughout his career, Peterson has struggled with managing his finances, and is now believed to be in debt.

As of February 2023, Adrian Peterson’s net worth is $1 Million.
