Vikings RB Adrian Peterson helps stranded motorist in Texas

While the NFL was preparing to kick off the divisional round of the playoffs, star running back Adrian Peterson was busy being a good samaritan in Texas.

Courtesy of the father of Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, here’s a photo of Peterson helping a stranded motorist move his truck out of harm’s way in Houston, Texas.

This apparently took place on Thursday with Peterson using his plus-level strength to help four other men move the truck.

Say what you want about Peterson, but he surely is out there with altruism on his mind. It’s definitely a good look for someone that’s been in the news for all the wrong reasons in recent seasons.
