Adrian Peterson on DeMarco Murray: 'Dallas hasn't seen the best out of him'

Former Oklahoma and current Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was in town Friday, hosting a two-day football camp at Liberty High School.

While the 2012 NFL MVP and former Oklahoma standout answered questions about bouncing back from major knee surgery to have one of the greatest rushing seasons in NFL history, he also discussed his friend, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, and facing the Cowboys in Week 9.

Peterson carried the load for the Sooners from 2004-2006 and Murray took over the following season after Peterson headed to the NFL Draft. Peterson said the two still keep in touch and he sees a bright future for Murray in the Cowboys’ backfield.

“He’s a heck of an athlete, heck of a player and a better man off the field,” Peterson said. “I KNOW Dallas hasn’t seen the best out of him. The moment he stepped on that campus, I knew if he stayed healthy he was going to be good. That’s the type of mentality he has. You’ve seen that in Dallas. He’s so versatile with what he can do blocking, running the ball, catching the ball. He’s going to be a good player for the Cowboys.” (Dallas Morning News)
