Emmitt Wants To Be There To See Peterson Break His Record

Vikings_Adrian_Peterson_2013Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is setting his sights on breaking Emmitt Smith’s record for career rushing yards. Smith would like to be there to see the record broken.

“I’m very proud to see what Adrian has been able to accomplish thus far, especially after the devastating knee injury a couple years ago,” Smith told SportsDayDFW.com. “To see him bounce back last year and have over 2,000 yards rushing is nothing short of remarkable. Can he do it? Hey, I’m not going to say no one can ever achieve that level because I was able to achieve it myself. It’s not reserved for me. Records are made to be broken. All I can do is sit back and say: Good luck, go for it and the day that you get close to it, please call me and invite me so I can come watch.”
