Another year, another false report that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is engaged to longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Brown, aka Ashley of Playboy’s 2006 “Girls of the Big 12.”

A quick Internet search shows a handful of ­reported engagements in 2010, 2011 and the most recent one, claiming he popped the question to her after Sunday’s 212-yard performance.

Not true.

A source close to Peterson tells Hot Corner the elusive runner is dating Brown but is not engaged.
