Adrian Peterson Ready for Baby

There are some things that are more important than playing football!  Superstar Running Back Adrian Peterson found himself in a bit of a quandary today after his fiance went into labor.  Of course, Peterson did the right thing by skipping the first day of the Minnesota Vikings Training Camp to rush back to her side to support her through the birth of their first child.

Peterson arrived back in Minnesota to get down to the business of playing football one day.  The next he high-tailed it back home for a much more important job — fatherhood.  Training camp comes once a year, but the birth of your first child is a once in a lifetime experience.   For now the star will be skipping out on a few days of training camp to help his wife recover and bond with his new little one.

This will be the first child for Adrian Peterson and his fiance Ashley Brown.
