As he prepares for a fresh start with the New Orleans Saints, Adrian Peterson took a moment to thank Minnesota Vikings fans Friday night.

“You all have been the greatest fans anyone could ask for and I truly appreciate all the love and support throughout the years,” the veteran running back said in an audio message he tweeted out.

Peterson spent 10 seasons in Minnesota before signing a two-year deal with the Saints last month. He ranks as the Vikings’ all-time leading rusher with 11,747 yards and 97 touchdowns.
