It's almost as if he's their franchise player.

Good running backs are easy to find. AP only has about 6-7 more years in him, i don't know if he's worth that much money.

Peterson is expendable. If the Vikings have any brain at all they should realease him now.

They should trade him to the Lions for Maurice Morris and a conditional 7th.

The only way Peterson is going anywhere is if we get Thigpenzzz in return.

This is the same situation as Larry Fitz's contract escalators.

If he were making 20 million a year, they'd find someone else to cut to open up cap room. They're not letting him get away unless they get a Herschel Walker trade.

This is not news.

you'd trade Adrian Peterson for a 47-year old running back? You're weird.

No who ever started it should be banned ASAP...

dude fumbles all the time, he shouldn't be starting with those fumble problems. For his own good he should demand a trade to NY so coughlin can fix him like he did tiki, Peterson would be a good backup for Jacobs and Bradshaw.

Coach not big on the idea.

Peterson wants more weight, but Childress not sure (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-vikings-petersonspounds&prov=ap&type=lgns)
