EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Bud Grant isn’t the only Vikings legend having a sale these days.

While the hall of fame coach wrapped up his well-chronicled three-day garage sale Friday in Bloomington, TMZ first reported that former Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson is selling his Eden Prairie home for $695,000.

The 4,167 square foot, five-bedroom home, which Peterson bought for $665,000 after joining the Vikings in 2007, comes with a room that has a purple wall and a team logo. That could be just the thing for a die-hard fan.

After 10 years with the Vikings, Peterson was not brought back as free agent and signed last month with New Orleans. The Saints open the season at Minnesota on Sept. 11 on “Monday Night Football.”

There’s no word on whether any potential sales offer could include Peterson stopping by then at his old digs to meet a new owner.
