American football running back Adrian Peterson started his career after being selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2007 NFL Draft.

He afterward agreed to a 40.5 million dollar agreement and delivered an outstanding performance at the 2008 NFL Pro Bowl.

In 2011, the Vikings extended Peterson's contract, giving him 96 million dollars, turning him the highest-paid running back in the NFL.

But in 2015, he started the season with a knee injury and went through a surgery to fix worn out meniscus.

Adrian Peterson has struggled with proper money management and at the present it is supposed to be in debt.

Adrian Peterson's net worth is estimated to be $1 million as of 2022, despite earning nearly $100 million during his career.
