Per new USA Today writer Tom "Presso" Pelissero, in a larger piece about HGH in football:
Adrian Peterson ... says he always takes accusations of his own possible PED use as a compliment.
"Seriously. Especially with the amount of work I put in," Peterson said. "Guys say that to me, or if I hear someone saying that — it makes me feel good.
"When you know you don't do it, and someone's saying you do, you're like, 'Wow. They think I'm on HGH? I'm doing that good? Well, hoo! Thank you, Jesus!' It's a compliment. I don't get mad about it at all."
