4. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
2013 Salary: $14.38 Million
One of the most powerful and dynamic running backs the league has ever seen, Peterson runs with a bruising style that can’t be matched by any of his peers.
Sometimes he pays the price for it—like this past year when he busted his ankle—but more often than not, he gets the best of his opponents.
Averaging nearly 1,700 yards and 11 TDs in his past two seasons—in just 30 games—”AD” is still the best—and most feared—back in the league.
