what's next for adrian peterson?


now that the vikings have signed a new bruising back in latavius murray and with gm rick spielman publicly acknowledging yesterday that adrian peterson won't be back in 2017, what's next for peterson?peterson has not generated much interest in free agency. his only known visit came last weekend, when he met up with the seahawks. they then signed eddie lacy a couple days later, eliminating that option.peterson was eyeing the patriots, according to public comments made by his talkative father. but the patriots instead signed rex burkhead, who has 375 career rushing yards — 11,372 fewer than peterson.the raiders, who let murray leave after he made the pro bowl in 2015 and rushed for 12 touchdowns in 2016, seemingly make sense. but they are reportedly trying to woo marshawn lynch, who retired

scoggins: vikings need to move on; he's just not the ap of old


news that adrian peterson will become an unrestricted free agent after 10 seasons with the vikings shouldn’t cause shrieks of disbelief. anyone not living on mars knew the vikings had zero intention of exercising a contract option that would pay peterson $18 million next season.the breakup technically wasn’t termed a divorce though, with both sides issuing statements that left open the possibility of peterson returning at a much cheaper salary.“we will continue to have conversations with his representatives and leave our future options open while determining what is best for both parties moving forward,” general manager rick spielman said.peterson echoed that sentiment in his statement to espn. “the door is still open to find some common ground,” he said.sorry, but it’s time to close that

vikings fans: would you rather have adrian peterson, eddie lacy -- or neither


the vikings are bringing in free agent running back eddie lacy for a visit, a move that some view as a little puzzling on the surface. is lacy, who spent the first four years of his career with the packers, really a good fit? and would he be a better option here than trying to re-sign adrian peterson?let’s assume money isn’t an issue and that both running backs would get roughly the same deal. i’m not sure if that’s true, but let’s keep that equal so we can just compare the skill sets of the players for now.let’s let the basic question be this one: would the vikings rather have peterson, lacy or neither?one obvious plus on the ledger for lacy is his age. he’ll be 27 during the 2017 season, presumably with plenty of life left in his legs. he has 788 career carries — fewer than one-third as
