Vikings Insist Adrian Peterson Won't Be Traded

Apr 29, 2015 12:12 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have seemingly ended all Adrian Peterson trade rumors before the NFL Draft has even begun.

"We can just end the Adrian Peterson stuff," said Rick Spielman. "Our position has not changed...we have no interest in trading Adrian Peterson."

Peterson has sought a trade this offseason following his reinstatement by the NFL.

The Vikings have reportedly had absurd trade demands for a 30-year-old running back, signalling they've wanted to keep him all along.

Cardinals, Buccaneers, Jaguars In Running For Peterson; Cowboys Out

Apr 23, 2015 12:43 PM

The number of teams who realistically might trade for Adrian Peterson are less than what has been previously reported.

The Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers represent the three teams who could deal for Peterson.

Despite speculation to the contrary, the Dallas Cowboys are not in play for Peterson.

"Whoever says otherwise is 1,000 percent wrong," said Charles Robinson. "The Cowboys have not spoken to the Minnesota Vikings about Adrian Peterson. It has not happened. They haven't offered a draft pick, they have not picked up the telephone to talk to the Minnesota Vikings about Adrian Peterson. It simply has not happened."

Cardinals, Falcons, Cowboys, Jags, Chargers, Bucs In Mix For Peterson

Apr 21, 2015 1:04 PM

The Minnesota Vikings want a resolution to the Adrian Peterson situation during draft week.

"If he's not traded next week, they're going to keep him," the source said.

The Vikings could entice a team to trade for Peterson once Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley are drafted.

According to a source, the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the six teams that could deal for Peterson.

Peterson was reinstated last week from an NFL suspension for a child-abuse incident.

Adrian Peterson Unlikely To Receive Additional Suspension

Apr 8, 2015 12:02 AM

Adrian Peterson is "highly unlikely" to face further suspension by the NFL when he comes off the Commissioner's Exempt List.

Peterson reportedly wanted to "weigh in on why he believes he should not be suspended, why he should not face additional penalty when he comes off this list."

Peterson agreed to a plea deal in November.

"Peterson wants to have a completely clean slate by the draft," Rapoport said. "His point: The Minnesota Vikings have held strong in saying they do not plan on trading Adrian Peterson. They believe he will play for them in 2015. In fact, they want him to play for either them or no one else.

"However, if they are to be tempted with a trade," Rapoport said, "it is going to come at the time of the draft and Peterson wants to make sure there are no obstacles to him getting on the field in 2015, just in case another team decides to come calling -- maybe like the Cardinals, maybe like the Cowboys."
