The Adrian Peterson era in Minnesota came to a close this week as the Vikings signed free-agent tailback Latavius Murray.

Which means Minnesota sports fans will no longer see "All Day" juking and stiff arming his way to the end zone. Peterson is arguably the most electrifying Vikings player since ... Randy Moss.

So here at GoMN Sports, let us ask you this: who did you like watching more, Randy Moss or Adrian Peterson?

Moss is arguably the greatest receiver to ever play in the NFL. He'll be eligible for the Hall of Fame this summer too.

The Vikings won four playoff games during Moss's tenure in Minnesota, while the team won just one playoff game with Peterson.

However both players also had their fair share of off-the-field issues. In 2002, Moss was arrested for hitting a traffic control officer. And Peterson was suspended for most of the 2015 season because of a child abuse case.

Below are a few highlight videos of Peterson and Moss in purple and gold.
