Know who was thrilled to hear about Chris Johnson's new $53.5 million contract with $30 million guaranteed? Adrian Peterson! Reason being, now that CJ's set the bar for how much elite NFL running backs should be making, AP is in the running for one hell of a pay raise soon. However, the Minnesota Vikings are apparently not happy with the deal, seeing as how they'll now have to negotiate a new deal with AP, who will definitely want a contract that exceeds the one Johnson just signed. Ayo, Minny: Show your man the money!
No, really, show him. There's a few of us who've got him on our fantasy team and we don't want our dude playing disgruntled. OK? [via Fan Nation]
