Adrian Peterson could be on the trade block in the near future, after his relationship with the Vikings took a “dramatic turn” last week at the NFL combine, according to Jason La Canfora.
Peterson, 29, still has three years remaining on his contract, and is owed $13 million in 2015, according to La Canfora.
La Canfora reports Peterson’s agent “engaged in a heated exchange with Vikings vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski, during which the agent made it clear that Peterson would never play there again.”
The two were eventually separated by Tampa general manager Mark Dominik, per La Canfora, who further notes none of the involved parties have responded to requests for comment.
On Saturday, Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reported Peterson “wants to go to Dallas,” a partnering which La Canfora says “would hardly be a slam dunk.” Cole’s report was later disputed by Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, who insisted Peterson “hasn’t asked for a trade.”
Now, Peterson “has no intention of playing again for the Vikings,” La Canfora says, later adding, “one source suggested the Washington Redskins as a dark-horse potential suitor for him.” The Ravens will also be in the market for a running back if they can not bring back free agent Justin Forsett next season. Peterson turns 30 years old in March. - cbs
