Didn't he sign a 5 year deal? Making him 28, only two years older than Peterson. I could be wrong. Not to mention if he continues his production he's not going to finish that deal.

I really don't care though, the guaranteed money isn't that much more than CJ's deal.

Peterson's contract bonus is worth Charles' entire contract. If he has two more years like last year, I can imagine he'll imagine he will want a new deal. I don't know much about his personality though, so I'm not sure if he's some greedy hood rat like Chris Johnson.

I don't think it's too likely that Jamaal is going to want to continue playing on a 6 year 27.97 million dollar deal... That is if continues his current production, and solidifies his status as one of the truly elite RBs in the NFL

I don't disagree with any of that.

That said if he wants a deal like Peterson just got it will have to be with another team.

If they don't give him the cash, some other team will. The man is worth some good cash, especially for a team that relies on him so much. Its not like he is going to finish that deal or get all that money.

Not saying Peterson is worth that much money. I'm sure it's heavily backloaded. Does he deserve to be the highest paid RB? Definately. But at that price, no.

I do find it funny though that Chris Johnson cried about a new contract when the organization told CJ2K that they would give him a deal if he didn't hold out.

Adrain Peterson didn't hold out and he got paid. It's all about character and leadership and class. Chris Johnson, doesn't have that attitude. He's a "Me First" type of player.

To be fair I think most NFL players would have held out aswell, if they were put the in same situation as Chris Johnson.

I'm pretty sure he would have gotten his money if he didn't hold out, and a lot sooner too.

That could be true, but I can't blame him for holding out.

AD was the highest paid RB already and Chris Johnson was the 32nd highest paid RB, there is a big difference.

I highly doubt it was that low. I mean, he was a 1st round selection, meaning he's paid more than guys like Lagarrett Blount and Arian Foster, two guys who were UDFAs who don't have new contracts.

Laugh as much as you want, but we just locked up the best RB in the league for 36 mil in guarantees. Doesn't sound like too bad of a deal to me.

I don't value running backs much either. Even great ones. With a hard cap, paying one tons of money would not be wise. However, Adrian Peterson is not a great running back. He's beyond great. He's beyond a running back. He's arguably the best non-QB in the entire league. CJ2K's contract deserves to be laughed at much more than this one. I never thought any back was close to Peterson in terms of talent, even when CJ did 2K.

And the Vikings had to do this. There was no alternative. What are they gonna do - let him test the market? lol

You just locked up the best running back of this generation. From a standpoint of pure physical talent - I'm not sure there are 3 or 4 backs in history you can even say in the same sentence as him...

AD is special, but CJ is severely, or somewhat underrated. Chris Johnson is one tough smallish RB and is arguably the fastest player in the league.

If the Titans had a legit passing game, his numbers would be untouchable.
Chris can do things after a handoff that I doubt AD can.
I'll rate the guy with the 2K season under his belt a little higher than the perfect specimen at RB.

That said, I think the Vikings had no choice but to lock up their most valuable player, even if he does play RB.

Not taking away from Chris Johnson's accomplishments and abilities, but Adrian Peterson is by far the best RB in the league and possibly in this generation. He's just a beast with 4.4 speed that will run people over.
