You'd think a guy like Adrian Peterson would be easily recognizable, but one Houston news reporter had no idea he was interviewing the NFL running back.

FOX 26 out of Houston was doing a study on road rage incidents and ventured out to get comments from the community. The Fox 26 reporter, John Donnelly, managed to run into Adrian Peterson. He had no idea until he asked for his name following the interview! Awkward...

Peterson's 2017 option on his contract was not picked up by the Minnesota Vikings. He will be an unrestricted free agent.
