Adrian Peterson says NFL back payment is “disrespectful,” but believes “change will occur.”

If there is one thing we have learned in recent years, it is that you should think twice before restoring the broker market. Devonta Freeman and Todd Gurley did not live up to their expanses, and Le’Veon Bell and Melvin Gordon holdouts didn’t deliver the results they hoped for. However, Adrian Peterson of the Washington Redskins has been one of those rare exceptions when it comes to durability as a running back, as the future Pro Football Hall of Famer is entering season 14 and continues to make significant contributions to field. This week, TMZ asked Peterson why riders are not as valued as other positions like the quarterback, and Peterson replied that he has not yet been able to resolve it.

“I still haven’t been able to answer that question, man,” Peterson said. “It is disrespectful to be honest with you, it really is. But I think there will be a change, I think that this young core of boys and you and Frank Gore show us the boys: ‘Hello, we are valuable. You can also be 10, 14 years old career, so rate us like a quarterback. “

While the NFL is considered more like a passing league now, the best racing team (Baltimore Ravens) finished with the best record of the regular season in 2019, and the No. 2 racing team (San Francisco 49ers) went as far as in the Super Bowl. The third-best rushing offense at the Tennessee Titans came into the AFC Championship game as Derrick Henry literally led his team into the postseason. Henry received the franchise tag earlier this offseason, but he still hopes that he will be able to secure an extension in the coming months.

Peterson is hopeful for the future of the running back position due to young and talented players like Henry and Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers. In April, the Panthers re-established the running back market by signing McCaffrey on a four-year contract worth $ 16 million per season. It was difficult challenging the Panthers in this decision, as McCaffrey has logged two consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons along with two consecutive 100-catch performances, totaling nearly 2,400 total yards and 19 touchdowns in 2019.

“This young core on his back is really changing the game for the better,” Peterson said. “You look at McCaffrey and all he could do. So I feel like you’re going to keep getting guys so they will help raise the value of the running back position.”

Not everyone can have a stellar career like the one Peterson had. He is currently number 5 on the all-time list. It’s amazing that he was able to record a 1,000-yard rushing season at the age of 33, and he believes he can play up to 39. It will be interesting to see if players like Henry and McCaffrey can change the narrative when it comes to paying runners in the future. Peterson certainly thinks they can.
