Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is back in his home state of Texas. Although his season was cut short due to Minnesota missing playoffs, he still manages to push his way through traffic.

On Friday morning in Houston, Peterson helped push a stranded motorist, according to Larry Fitzgerald Sr.

Ever since Peterson came into the league, every single announcer talks about how strong Peterson's handshake is. So obviously he can push a stalled car no problem.

Minnesota faces a crucial decision with Peterson this offseason. The Vikings all-time leading rusher will be 32 next year and is due $18 million in 2017. That would make him the highest paid running back in the league.

However if the Vikings cut Peterson in March, his contract will not count against the Vikings salary cap next season.
