Washington Football Team running back Adrian Peterson, 35, says he is hungry for more success as he wants to win a Super Bowl and break Emmitt Smith's all-time rushing record before he calls it a career. Peterson, the seventh overall pick of the 2007 NFL draft, is heading into his third season in the NFL and into his third season in Washington.
"Winning a championship is the one I want most,” Peterson said on NFL Network, as quoted on Pro Football Talk. Peterson is one of the most accomplished running backs in the history of the game and he is a lock to make the Hall of Fame once he decides to walk away from professional football.
In 2012, Peterson won the NFL MVP award, led the league in rushing yards and also won the Offensive Player of the Year award. Peterson has made the First-Team four times throughout his career and he has also been seven times to the Pro Bowl.
Also, Peterson won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2007 and twice he has led the league in rushing toychdowns. Former Dallas Cowboys star Smith holds the all-time rushing record with 18,355 yards, while Peterson has 14,216 rushing yards to his name.
"That’s one of the goals I set to myself when I entered the NFL was to pass the GOAT,” Peterson said. “I look forward to playing a couple more years, 3-4 more years, who knows, depending on how my body is feeling”.
Meanwhile, Josh Norman confident in Buffalo Bills' secondary
Pro Bowl cornerback Norman is confident his team is one the best when it comes to the defensive side as he claims the Bills have the best secondary in the NFL.
The Bills received a huge boost on Thursday, when cornerback Tre’Davious White decided to play this season after contemplating to opt out of playing this hear. "We have the best secondary in the league,” Norman said, via the team’s website.
“I think guys really sleep on Micah [Hyde] and [Jordan] Poyer back there. It’s because they really do a great job over the top and then coming down in the box as well. They are two of the best tandems in the league.
And then you have Tre obviously on the other side. He does a great job at just keying in on his man, and having a guy in that position to go day in and day out and make a play. Then you have Levi [Wallace] on the other side, he’s doing a great job.
Taron [Johnson] in the nickel, you have so many guys that you can put into this position in secondary, and you see what they’ve done the last couple of years being in the top of the league”.
