Dez Bryant would love to play with Adrian Peterson

The Dallas Cowboys have certainly been one of the more interesting teams to watch in the NFL this off-season.

They have lost DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles and brought in the former Oakland Raiders runningback Darren McFadden.

The Cowboys didn't draft a runningback to try and fill the void left by Murray and they have been heavily involved in the Adrian Peterson trade rumours.

The Cowboys were sure to slap the franchise tag on wide receiver Dez Bryant early on in the off-season meaning he has at least one more year left in Dallas.

Contract negotiations between Bryant and The Cowboys however have been stagnant, at best but Bryant has finally spoken out.

When speaking to TMZ, Bryant has addressed the rumours surrounding the troubled Minnesota Vikings runningback.

Peterson is returning to the league this year after being taken off of the Commissioner's exempt list but his future is less than sure.

Bryant has now addressed the possibility of playing on the same team as Peterson.

"We're both from east Texas and we both believe in the same things – as much as he loves the game, I love the game the same way. I think it'd be something very special." - Bryant on playing with Peterson

Peterson playing in Minnesota next year is becoming a more and more distant possibility but for now, that is where his future lies.

Dallas fans may be hoping to see their team bring him in and Bryant is certainly looking forward to the idea.

Peterson going anywhere?

Dallas haven't been the only team in the league linked with a trade for Peterson this year with other play-off teams seen as potential landing spots.

The Arizona Cardinals are one such team and their need for a runningback is great with the team ranked 31st in the league in terms of rushing yards last year.

The Cardinals enjoyed a great season last year until starting quarterback Carson Palmer went down with a torn ACL and from there, their season collapsed due to the lack of a good back up and a good runningback.
