Peterson was available to ask questions when Minnesota decided to work with Johnson. Before the cut, Peterson played 3 games for the Titans and raced 27 times for 82 yards and one touchdown.

It could be considered a mild Viking legend if Minnesota brought in Peterson only to potentially sever ties with him a few weeks later. However, Nelson Peterson thinks it is silly that his son did not receive the call.
