Adrian Peterson is just not giving up on his NFL career.
And good for him, because it’s not like he is a detriment to any team he is on.
Peterson is making his Seattle Seahawks debut in Week 13 after spending a few weeks with the Tennessee Titans earlier this season.
It did not take him long to make his presence felt.
126th career TD for @AdrianPeterson!
He ties @JimBrownNFL32 for the 10th all-time in TDs.

Peterson ran in a touchdown before the half and made NFL history in the process.
One Of The Best Ever
The rushing touchdown gives Peterson 126 touchdowns on his career.
That is good enough to be tied with Jim Brown for 10th all time in NFL history.
The score moved him off a tie with Walter Payton, who finished his career with 125 scores.
Next up is Marvin Harrison at 128, which seems like a realistic mark Peterson could reach if he keeps getting action with the Seahawks throughout the remainder of the season.
Tying Brown in any category is a cause for celebration.

One day, NFL fans will look back and realize we all watched one of the all-time greats in Peterson.
He is a future first-ballot Hall of Famer and is one of the best running backs the game has ever seen.
The fact he is jumping form team to team to finish his career does not change that.
Peterson is never going to approach Smith’s record, but a good target would be the 136 career touchdowns by Marshall Faulk.
One more full season in the NFL could help Peterson get there before finally calling it a career.
Whenever his career seems to be over, he gets another shot.
This latest touchdown may mean he is back in 2022 from Week 1 onward.
