Awwww: Adrian Peterson Jr. visits his dad at Vikings training camp (photos)


In likely will be some of the most adorable images that will come out of NFL training camps this summer will be the photos snapped of Adrian Peterson Jr. paying a visit to Minnesota Vikings training camp in Mankato, Minn., on Monday to spend a little time with his not-so-0ld man, Vikings all-world running back Adrian Peterson.

Papa Peterson, who has been making headlines since the onset of training camp with his comments on HGH use in the NFL and how he has predicted the exact date when he’ll break Emmitt Smith’s career rushing record, took some time during practice to show off his pride of joy to running backs coach James Saxon (above, via)) and to be part of a heartwarming photo featuring his son gazing up adoringly at his equally smitten father while wearing his dad’s helmet.

Via the official Twitter account of the Vikings:


Adorable. And here’s another photo of Adrian Jr. showing off his still-developing ball security technique (via @MyFOX9):


Finally, here’s daddy and son sharing a quick peck following practice (via @si_vault):

Once again. Adorable.
