NFL Star in No Rush to Pack ESPY

7/18/2008 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ caught NFL running back Adrian Peterson carrying more than just a football. Spoiler alert: he won an ESPY!

The Minnesota Viking was leaving LAX with his "Best Breakthrough Athlete" award in a non-jockworthy man purse and even handed it off to fans to pose with. Even the best fumble from time to time.

Whatever - AP can do whatever the hell he wants, he has some of the most potential of all RBs in the history of the league and totally deserved that award. Skoal Vikings!!!

ESPN already spoiled that on yesterday morning's SportsCenter. They showed a graphic with all of the winners for their categories. Sorry TMZ, old news. Anyone who would have been watching the Espy's probably already saw that spoiler on ESPN already.

I'm from Minny-soda and I can't stand the Viqueens. Not a cheesehead, either. I think AP will fall by the wayside of the sophomore jinx this year and everybody will be crying that he's a flash in the pan, which he is.
GO PATRIOTS!

Um, listen whortney - Do you ever watch sports center or read any sport publications? Yes, his nickname in COLLEGE was "all day" but he is for shiz called AP by the fans and the media.

Are you the sacred protector of his college nickname? Do you mix up your a** from a hole in the ground?

hey douchegirl... if you really are a vikings fan, stop calling out other fans because they know what they're talking about. "AD" got his nickname when he was a child. i can't remember the whole story, but it has something to do with him being full of energy and running around all day long, and in HS and college football, the name stuck because he'd run over you All Day.
