Adrian Peterson: NFL running back pay is 'disrespectful'

  Adrian Peterson: NFL running back pay is 'disrespectful' Future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson has spoken out against the devaluing of running backs in today's NFL.Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson is sick of how NFL owners and general managers refuse to pay running backs what they're worth, and now he's spreading that displeasure with the league's younger running backs in hopes they'll spread change.

In every NFL season breakout stars emerge, and there's plenty of anticipation for those players going into 2020. Here's a look at one player from each NFL team who could be set to take a leap forward this year.

Jets sign first-round pick Mekhi Becton to four-year, $18.45M rookie deal .
Becton – who stands at 6-foot-7 and 364 pounds – has scouts all over the league buzzing. With Trent Brown’s bulk and a 5.1-second 40-yard dash, there was little doubt that he’d come off the board early. The Jets weren’t sure he’d be there at No. 11, but they were pleasantly surprised, and they pounced. Georgia’s Andrew Thomas was the first tackle to go at No. 4 overall to the Giants, and he was viewed as the safest of the bunch. Becton – who pushes trucks for fun – may have a higher ceiling.
