Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson joined the show to talk about the upcoming season, PEDs, his amazing recovering from a devastating knee injury, chasing the all-time rushing record and singing N’Sync with his teammates.

Dan asked Peterson if it’s fair to be suspicious of NFL players like him being on PEDs. “Yeah I think it’s fair,” Peterson said. “I know there are people on my side and people against me but for my name to come up it doesn’t surprise me at all especially with the way I bounced back from the injury. I really don’t buy into it. It makes me realize how blessed I am to come back and have the kind of season I did. When people make those type of accusations it gives me confidence. … For people to think that I used some type of PED, to me, it’s an accomplishment, it’s an honor, for people to say, ‘Well, you know, he had to be on something.'”

Peterson also had advice for Robert Griffin III:  “Just be smart. Just know that when you’re out on the field and not thinking about your knee you’re comfortable and confident that your knee is stronger than the opposite leg and go out there and play and don’t think about it. If you think about it, then nine times out of 10 something will happen to it again.”

And Peterson commented on his chances of breaking Emmit Smith’s all-time rushing record:  “I feel like if I continue to stay healthy and be blessed to play this game for a long time then that record is something that I can break and I will break.
