Former Viking/Sooner Adrian Peterson to ink $7,000,000 two year deal with New Orleans…NBA’s Kyle Singler makes more $$$$$……how messed up is that?

Something to ponder sports fans.  Adrian Peterson Peterson (AD) will ink a two year contract with the New Orleans Saints of the NFL. The money is reported to be 3.5 million dollars each year with a team option for year two.
AD is guaranteed the three and one half million dollars.  To put that contract into perspective, Kyle Singler of the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association will make $4,666,500 for 2017-18 and $4,994,000 for 2018-2019 guaranteed. Thunder team option for Kyle is $5,333,500 for 2019-2020 which I would think the team will pass on. Sink your teeth into those numbers. The NBA is passing out contracts that make little sense while one of the all-time greats still with a little gas in the tank is pinched in one of his final contracts.  Does Peterson deserve more? Maybe. Does Singler deserve less? You can answer that for yourself sports fans.  Sam Presti, what that were you thinking?
