Pro Bowl Vets Encouraged AP to Bulk Up

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Adrian Peterson's father revealed that veteran players at the Pro Bowl convinced his son that bulking up to 230 pounds would be a good idea.
They said, "'No defender wants to see you coming downhill at 230," AP's dad explained. "That's where having an old-school dad comes in handy. I told Adrian, "Those veterans are trying to set you up. They want you to add weight so you can slow down a bit and they can have an easier time catching you.'" Peterson has since scrapped the idea. He currently weighs 216.
