Adrian Peterson will consider a post-playing career in coaching, but the 36-year-old running bank wants to keep playing.
Peterson finished his 15th professional season on injured reserve with the Seattle Seahawks. He joined their practice squad in early December and played in one game before injuring his back.
He will be a free agent.
"I just can't fathom my career ending the way that it did," he said. "So with that, I'm going into the offseason with the mindset to continue to play. I still have love for the game. I feel I can compete at a high level still and with an offseason under my belt, with the mindset -- because I'm stronger than I was last year, mentally -- with the mindset that I would go into this offseason with, I feel like I'll be able to do some incredible things, getting healthy and just kind of grinding this offseason with a different mentality. So as of today, I definitely look forward to playing again."
