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.
Judge rules in favor of Adrian Peterson-- Thu Feb 26 1:00 pm --
Suspension overturned, eligible to be reinstated
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been reinstated after U.S. District Court Judge David Doty ruled Thursday in the NFL Players Association's lawsuit against the NFL on Peterson's behalf. As a result of the ruling, the Vikings might now be forced to make a decision on Peterson sooner rather than later. They can release or try to restructure his contract now, and also will be free to trade him once the league year begins March 10.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Peterson will count over $15 million against the Vikings cap and is set to earn $12.75 million in 2015. Rumors of bad blood between Peterson's agent and Vikings management over the last couple days have fueled speculation that Peterson has played his last game as a member of the Vikings. Peterson can now be cut, traded or perhaps remain with the team at a reduced cost. Stay tuned...
