Adrian Peterson may not be the dominant running back that he once was. But the New Orleans Saints veteran demonstrated that, when called upon, he still has crazy hops.
During a practice on Saturday, Peterson approached a stack of blocking pads that came up to around his neck. He went up and over the stack. If he touched the pads at all, it was nothing more than a slight graze.

At the very least, the Saints know that they have a guy who can get up and over the pile on the goal line.
That’s certainly great air time for anyone, let alone a 32-year-old running back.
