Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson will not be appearing at his own football camp because he’s going to film a show for NFL Network instead. Here’s the note that appeared on the camp’s website explaining his absence, as the Tulsa World pointed out:
Adrian Peterson is being featured on the NFL Top 100 program and will not be able to attend this week’s camp. Although we are saddened to hear that he won’t be able to attend his camp, we congratulate Adrian on the honor. Since we learned the news, ProCamps has been working around the clock to maintain a program that still provides a first-class experience to all campers and allows interaction with various Sooner stars. All-time Sooner greats Mark Clayton, DeMarco Murray and Jason White will serve as special guest hosts at camp.
The camp runs Thursday and Friday at the University of Oklahoma and it’s pleasing they will have Sooners stars in attendance as guest hosts. However, it’s extremely difficult to overlook Peterson ditching his own camp to film the show. Not only is Peterson’s name used to market the camp, they also promote his presence as a selling point.
