Now that the Bucs are Super Bowl champions, it seems that everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon.
Add future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson to that list, as the former Minnesota Vikings and current Detroit Lions back is speaking out about wanting to play in Florida in 2021.
Peterson, who is now 35, spoke to TMZ about his career, and said that he would love to join up with fellow future Hall of Famer Tom Brady and play for the Buccaneers next season.
“That would definitely be something I’m interested in,” Peterson said via TMZ.
“If they want me to be a part of it, I’ll be a part of it for sure. Because I’m definitely trying to add a trophy to my resume.”
Peterson has never won or appeared in a Super Bowl in his 15-year NFL career, but he has consistently been one of the best backs in the league, leading the NFL in rushing three times and going over 1000 yards rushing eight times in his career.
If the Bucs have interest in adding a player like Peterson to their roster for 2021, he is a free agent. So he can ink with any team he wants once the free agency signing period kicks off in March.
There is a history between Peterson and Tampa coach Bruce Arians, as the Bucs coach traded for Peterson when he was the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals back in 2017.
It sounds like after the Bucs’ dominant outing Sunday over the Kansas City Chiefs, a lot of veteran players are interested in playing with 7-time Super Bowl champion Brady.
“Playing with Tom Brady, that by itself is enticing,” Peterson said.
