In an interview with ESPN’s Jean-Jacque Taylor, Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith said that if former Oklahoma and current Vikings running back Adrian Peterson doesn’t catch his rushing record, he’s not sure who else would.
Smith’s record of 18,355 yards has held fast for 13 NFL seasons. After missing the 2014 season, Peterson posted his seventh of nine pro seasons with at least 1,266 yards. The 2007 first-round pick holds a total of 11,675 yards, still a ways off.
If anyone can make up that deficit, though, Smith said it’s Peterson.
‘If he doesn’t get it, I don’t know who’s going to get it,’ Smith said. ‘He’s still got a lot of yards to go. I’m not going to lie to you.’ (Vikings.com)
