"It puts a little more incentive on it because you want to make sure you do it back, because you're always talking about, 'man, on if I played for the other team, I'd put my hands on you,'" Peterson said while talking to NFL Media's Dan Hellie and Marshall Faulk during the hours leading up to the Pro Bowl on Sunday. "Now we actually have the opportunity, we have a little bit more bragging rights going into the season."
Unfortunately for Peterson's competitive desires, all of his teammates elected to the Pro Bowl landed alongside him on Team Carter. Those matchups will be left to the other usual comrades now donning opposite highlighter shades.
But the corner did leave a little nugget of information that serves as reason to keep an eye trained on him -- Peterson could line up on the offensive side of the ball.
"Ooh, stay tuned," Peterson said with a wily smile. "Stay tuned. It's a lot of crazy things in store tonight."
