On ESPN’s SportsCenter Tuesday morning, NFL Hall of Famer and former Oklahoma State running back Barry Sanders was asked his opinion on who was currently the best running back in the NFL.

Last week, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy went on the radio to say that he was the best running back in the NFL, not former OU rusher Adrian Peterson.

Sanders said the title still belonged to AD.

“I think the last couple of years he’s (McCoy) certainly made a strong statement. I would probably still give Adrian Peterson the slight edge on that,” Sanders said. (The Oklahoman)
