    Adrian Peterson hosts Special Olympics athletes

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Working with Special Olympics Minnesota has become one of Adrian Peterson's favorite causes.

    Seeing the bright smiles and the overall excitement the athletes get from meeting one of their favorite football players is a way for him to get away from the daily grind and see what kind of impact his mere presence can make.

    Thats nice of him to do things like this

    He is a busy man but always finds time to do things like this

    I wonder if he gets paid to do this.. He could be off doing photoshoots and getting paid but instead does this.. Classy guy
