Peterson won't participate in voluntary OTA's-- Sun May 24 11:30 pm --
Still wants to be traded
Running back Adrian Peterson will not be in attendance Tuesday at Winter Park when the Vikings begin their first week of voluntary organized team activities. He instead will remain in Texas, according to multiple reports. The first time that Peterson ó and the rest of his Vikings teammates ó are required to show up at Winter Park is next monthís mandatory minicamp. If he opts to skip those workouts, the Vikings can choose to fine him.(Minneapolis Star Tribune)
FF Today's Take:Other reports suggest that Peterson still wants to be traded and is considering sitting out upcoming mandatory workouts. Peterson remains under contract with the Vikings and is scheduled to make $12.75 million this season. Peterson has skipped voluntary workouts in the past.
FF Today's Take:The Vikings have held this stance for the entirety of the off-season and they don't appear to be budging. Peterson has made it clear he'd like to leave Minnesota but unless the Vikings are blown away with a trade offer this week, it's likely the talented running back will remain in a Vikings uniform.
Adrian Peterson to be reinstated on Friday-- Thu Apr 16 2:25 pm --
Can fully participate in all team activities
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be reinstated effective Friday, at which point he will be able to fully participate in all team activities, the NFL announced Thursday. Peterson has been suspended from the league since Nov. 18. Peterson pleaded no contest on Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless injury charges after injuring his son while disciplining him last May.
FF Today's Take:Peterson met with Rodger Goodell earlier this month to discuss his situation which includes continued counseling and keeping his nose squeaky clean. Peterson and his representatives have been adamant about wanting out of Minnesota but the Vikings have him under contract for three years including this season for $12.75 million. Stay tuned...
McFadden agrees with Dallas, $200K signing bonus-- Fri Mar 13 10:05 am --
First step in replacing Murray
Darren McFadden is at the teamís Valley Ranch complex today and has agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $5.85 million with a $200,000 signing bonus, sources said. While no one expects him to step in and replace Murray, he does provide competition at the position.(Dallas Morning News)
FF Today's Take:McFadden is expected to add depth the Cowboys running back group as they look to replace DeMarco Murray's 393 rushing attempts from last season. Even with McFadden in the mix, the Cowboys could go after a top running back in the upcoming draft or make a move for Adrian Peterson should he become available.
