Latavius Murray Throws a Hell of a Lot of Respect Adrian Peterson’s Way After Signing With Vikings

Latavius Murray Throws a Hell of a Lot of Respect Adrian Peterson’s Way After Signing With Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings appear to have signed Adrian Peterson‘s long-term replacement, with the news Latavius Murray has penned a three-year deal worth $15 million.

However, despite playing in the same position as Peterson and wearing the same jersey number during his time at the Oakland Raiders, Murray has reached out on Instagram to show some respect to AP.

Peterson is the Vikings all-time leading rusher with 2,418 yards and is a former NFL MVP winner.

However, it appears the 31-year-old running back is now surplus to requirements in Minnesota, not that Murray wants anyone to think he’s arriving as Peterson’s replacement though.

Murray posted this heart-felt message to his Instagram account this afternoon:

 

 

It remains unclear whether Peterson will continue his playing career elsewhere, having spent nine years in Minneapolis.

If Peterson decides to lace up his cleats again, it looks like the Detroit Lions could be a viable landing spot.
