Brian Robison on Overtime Says He Would Welcome Adrian Peterson Back
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison joins Jeff Thurn on Wednesday's edition of Overtime.
Hear the conversation between Thurn and Robison below:
Would Robison welcome Adrian Peterson back into the locker room?
"Well absolutely. I mean, you know, Adrian is a great guy. You know he got messed up in a deal that obviously none of us wanted to see him in. You know you can't take away anything from the guy as a football player. We would love to have him back. Like I said, he's never been a problem for us. He's always been an upstanding guy and you know, has done the right thing most of the time. With an unfortunate circumstance for him to be caught in and as well as our team. But right now, like you said, we have to concentrate on the Chicago Bears. All our minds have to be on that. We can't let the outside things distract us because that doesn't give us the best chance to be successful on Sunday. That's what our mind has to be focused on."
Is it a 'smart' business decision to bring Peterson back?
"You know, I'm not real sure on that. I think it's one of those deals where obviously ownership will talk among themselves and see how things go. Business is always tricky. That's the thing about this business, you know there's a lot of cutthroat decisions that go into the NFL. It's going to be interesting to see what happens moving forward, but like I said, as a player we have to concentrate on the task at hand, which is the next game."
The Vikings play the Bears, in Chicago, Sunday.
