Adrian Peterson Wants To Finish Career With Vikings

Adrian Peterson is coming off of a miserable 2016. After only playing 3 games in an injury-plagued season, Peterson expressed his desire to stay in Minnesota.

“I would love to finish my career here with the Minnesota Vikings,” Peterson said, via Twincities.com. “So that’s where my mind is.”

Peterson, 31, rushed for 72 yards on 37 carries in 2016. His $18 million cap number is going to be a problem heading into next season. There is no way the Vikings will retain him unless Peterson is willing to take a pay cut. So far A.P. seems like he would be open to the idea.

“There’s the reality that there comes a point in time where, yeah, the best thing to do is take a pay cut, and it might be in the best interest of the team, as well,” Peterson said.

There is no question the Vikings are a talented team. They have one of the best rosters in the league. The problem will be deciding if keeping Sam Bradford or Teddy Bridgewater is the best move? The contract negotiations between Peterson and the Vikings will be one to watch this offseason.
