Adrian Peterson joins The Blitz to discuss what he’s up to these days and do a little bit of reflecting on his time in Minnesota. He wants to play this season, but are the phones ringing? Peterson discusses some of the popular front office opinions he continues to hear as his years in the NFL stack up. Injuries, among other things, are tough, but Peterson definitely doesn’t think he’s slowing down.
Despite some hard feelings, Peterson maintains respect for the organization he was a part of in Minnesota. Sure, some poor decisions were made, but he ultimately has plenty of good things to say about his time with the Vikings. Also, the future Hall of Famer explains why he didn’t attend the University of Texas. Peterson reflects on the conversation he had with Mack Brown where he was told he wouldn’t start his freshman year at Texas, and how that led to his decision to go to Oklahoma. Be sure to listen to the full fantastic interview here.
Make sure to catch The Blitz with Fred Faour and AJ Hoffman weekdays from 4-7pm on ESPN 97.5 and SportsMap 94.1 radio. You can listen live or on demand with the ESPN 97.5 radio app.
With a new season on the horizon, the Astros have high hopes for 2024 after coming just one game shy of being in the World Series for three consecutive seasons.
If Houston wants to get back to the Fall Classic in 2024, they're going to have to rely on their pitching. Owner Jim Crane believes the club has 8 starting pitchers when Luis Garcia and Lance McCullers Jr. return mid-season.
Which allows several of the starters to move to the bullpen and provide even more depth. Add those guys to Bryan Abreu, Ryan Pressly, and Josh Hader and you have a recipe for success.
Check out the video above as ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham goes through the entire staff and makes his case for the Astros having the best pitching staff in baseball.
You can listen to The Killer B's with Jeremy Branham and Joel Blank every weekday on ESPN 97.5 & 92.5 from 3 pm - 6 pm!
