99 problems but Felton ain't one
By AJ Mass
Adrian Peterson is certainly going to be one of the first players selected in 2013 fantasy leagues all across the country in any and all formats after the enormous success he achieved in his remarkable return from injury.
While Peterson deserves much of the credit for his 2,097-yard campaign, he didn't do it all by himself. Lead blocker Jerome Felton certainly earned a ton of accolades for his part in helping Peterson reach that lofty 2,000-yard milestone. Not only was he rewarded with a Pro Bowl nod, but he should reap monetary benefits as well, in the form of a new contract.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that both Felton and the Minnesota Vikings are anxious to lock down the fullback's services sooner rather than later. And with Adrian Peterson in his corner, Felton is sure to come out of negotiations with a huge smile on his face.
