The upcoming Minnesota winter is going to be a lot more enjoyable for the Vikings' offensive linemen.

Star running back Adrian Peterson recently gave a snowmobile to each of his blockers as a thank you present for clearing the way for him during his 2012 MVP season. Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards last year, nine short of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season record. He also helped spur Minnesota's turnaround from a 3-13 team in 2011 to a 10-6 squad in 2012.

This week Peterson, who was paid $8 million by the Vikings last year, presented Phil Loadholt, Charlie Johnson, Matt Kalil, Brandon Fusco and John Sullivan with their own customized Arctic Cat snowmobiles. Models featured on the Arctic Cat website range in price from $7,999 to $12,449.

Pretty sweet, but how do these compare to other gifts that offensive lineman had received? It'll be hard for anyone to top Tom Brady, who gave his offensive linemen Audi Q7s after the Patriots' undefeated regular season in 2007.

In recent years, both Reggie Bush and Arian Foster have rewarded their blockers with Segways.
