ADRIAN PETERSON'S HOME
Eden Prairie, Minnesota
Sold for $539,000 in February 2018

When Adrian Peterson was our Minnesota Vikings running back, he kept a home here in Eden Prairie. Once Adrian put his 5-bedroom home on the market, surprisingly it sat on the market for a while. When this NFL MVP got his sale in February, he took $156,000 under the original asking price. It didn't seem to affect his pocket book too much, as you can see here in his lavish estate in Houston, Texas. Quite the upgrade from Eden Prairie!
