Adrian Peterson's Texas Mansion

Adrian Peterson spends his football seasons in chilly Minneapolis, carrying the football for the NFL's Vikings. But the Texas-raised running back goes back to the Lone Star State in the offseason, making his home in The Woodlands, an affluent community in the Houston metro area.

Or he used to, anyways. Peterson's sprawling property has just hit the real estate market with a cool $8.5 million price tag.

Odds are, you can't afford his house. But you can at least see the inside to see how the NFL star lives. Check out these 15 photos of AP's Houston home.
