Halle Berry might be done dating jocks after David Justice, but if she's not, she's got a very high-profile admirer: Minnesota Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson.

We found that out on the red carpet at the 19th annual ESPY awards in Los Angeles Wednesday night, where asked the world’s top sports stars the question: "Hypothetically speaking, if you could choose any Hollywood star to date, who would it be?"

Peterson, a 4-time Pro Bowler running back, didn't even let's Candace Smith finish the question before declaring Berry sweeter than one of his long touchdown runs.

"Halle Berry ... of course!" the future Hall-of-Famer, looking dapper in his plaid suit, told Smith.

"You don't want to think about it?" Smith asked.

"Not at all," Peterson replied.

Berry was also the choice for Shawn Marion, a member of the world champion Dallas Mavericks, while his teammate Jason Terry chose Jada Pinkett-Smith.

"My wife already knows ... that's my favorite!" Terry joked.

Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp plead the fifth to the sizzling hot question.

"You're trying to start something!" Kemp, who is Rihanna's ex, joked.

Kemp’s fellow All-Star, Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, took the same tack with the hot potato question.

"Hypothetically speaking, I'll have to politely decline," the slugger joked. "I'd like to keep my relationship healthy as it is!"

Smith, an actress/model by trade, has held the title of Miss Ohio USA, and is a former Survivor contestant.
