Adrian Peterson hoping to play 15th NFL season

Adrian Peterson is ready if he gets a call from a team wanting the 36-year-old to play a 15th NFL season.

Peterson is unsigned with training camp days away after rushing for 604 yards with the Detroit Lions last season.

Fifth on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 14,820 yards, Peterson and Frank Gore (16,000) are both without a team but working out to be ready if the chance comes due to injury or otherwise.

“The training is going well and I’m going to control the things that I can control right now, and, when that time comes, somebody will give me a call,” Peterson said on Sports Talk 790 in Houaron. “That’s all I’m asking for. My body feels good. I came out healthy from last season. My body feels strong. I still feel young. I still feel good. I’m ready to play ball.”

Other free agent running backs include Le’Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy.

Peterson stands 450 yards behind Barry Sanders for fourth on the all-time rushing list, which is topped by Emmitt Smith (18,355 ).
