Saints running back Adrian Peterson didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome in his return to Minnesota on Monday night.
Most fans expected a mixed reaction when he came into the Saints huddle for the first time, but it was anything but. In fact, it was mostly boos, which could be heard on the TV broadcast. Reporters in the press box echoed that sentiment as well.
Twitter users shared some opinions on the boo birds shortly after it happened.
We can’t fault the Twitterverse for feeling that way, as Peterson had spent the entirety of his career up to this point with the Vikings. He played 10 seasons in Minnesota, racking up 11,747 rushing yards and 97 touchdowns, but Vikings fans have a short memory, apparently.
