 Draft Scout *Adrian Peterson News
08/13/15 - RB Adrian Peterson caused hearts to skip a beat when he went down during an inside-run period on Tuesday. He took a knee to the right thigh and stayed down for a brief period before leaving the field with head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman. Peterson didn't practice on Thursday either, but said he only has a bruise and that he is "fine." Even healthy, Peterson wasn't scheduled to play in the preseason.
08/03/15 - RB Adrian Peterson used to lobby for preseason carries. He'd be itching for contact that isn't permitted to come his way during training camp for obvious reasons. But now he's older. Wiser. At 30, he's OK with a cautious plan that includes a fourth consecutive preseason without Peterson carrying the football. "I've been doing it for a long time now," Peterson said. "So I really grew out of trying to play in the preseason. It really doesn't matter. You might as well throw out all your marbles when it really counts." Peterson hasn't carried the ball in the preseason since 2011. His only action in that time was three snaps in the third game of the 2013 preseason. He also endured no contact in those three plays. Peterson said he's looking forward to his first contact in almost a year. He played only the season opener last year before missing the final 15 games while dealing with the fallout of child-abuse charges. "I am looking forward to it, but also with that being said, I'm being patient as well," he said. "I think I can wait until the first (regular season) game against the Niners" on Sept. 14. For now, just getting back to football has been a joy for Peterson. "It's a good feeling," he said. "It's relaxing. It's a different mindset going into it. The best thing has just been being around the fellas."
07/23/15 - RB Adrian Peterson restructures the final three years of his contract with the Vikings. While details of the new deal were not disclosed by the team, Peterson will receive more guaranteed money during the final two years of the contract, according to multiple reports. Peterson, who missed the final 15 games last season for abusing his son, wanted to restructure the seven-year, $100 million contract he signed in 2011 after it became clear earlier this offseason that the Vikings would not grant his request to be traded. The 30 year old was due to earn $12.75 million in base salary this season along with the final $2.4 million of the signing bonus he received as part of his 2011 contract. He was scheduled to earn $14.75 million in 2016 and $16.75 million in 2017 in base salary, along with a $250,000 workout bonus each year, but Peterson was seeking more in guaranteed money. According to ProFootballTalk.com, the new contract has a base salary of $44 million for the next three years. In 2015, he will receive a guaranteed $11 million base salary and a $2 million roster bonus due on July 28. In 2016, he gets a base salary of $7.75 million, including $7 million guaranteed for injury only at signing and a $5 million roster bonus on the third day of the league year. In 2017, Peterson's base will be $11.75 million with a $6 million roster bonus also due on the third day of the league year. In addition, there are $250,000 bonuses for participating in OTAs and mandatory minicamps in 2016 and 2017. After some contentious months between Peterson and the Vikings, the running back decided to show up for the team's offseason program, paving the way for the sides to work on a new agreement. According to multiple reports, the restructured contract provides Peterson more guaranteed money over the next two years with the Vikings holding an early team option for 2017. "This agreement is a win for both Adrian and the Vikings and is a positive step toward Adrian finishin
04/20/15 - RB Adrian Peterson, who was reinstated by the NFL on Friday, did not attend the start of the team's offseason workouts Monday (April 20). The Vikings had not been expecting Peterson to show up at their facility. The Pioneer Press reported it has nothing to do with Peterson being disgruntled because he has rarely been present for the offseason program. Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune wrote Sunday that Peterson would receive $250,000 if he reported to the Vikings camp, but "nobody expects him to report under any circumstances." Peterson returned to active status for the first time since September, when child-abuse charges involving his 4-year-old son led to seven months on the sideline. Peterson was informed via a letter from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he is expected to satisfy his obligations to authorities in Minnesota and Texas, as well as additional counseling and treatment commitments Peterson made April 7 during a meeting with Goodell, the league said in a statement Thursday. Peterson and his agent, Ben Dogra, have made it clear that the 30-year-old running back does not want to stay with Minnesota. The teams that have been floated as possible landing spots for Peterson are the Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders. However, the Vikings have said repeatedly that Peterson is under contract, they have no plans to trade him and expect him to play for the Vikings this season. Peterson's contract calls for a $12.75 million salary this season and doesn't expire for three more years. Peterson has spent his entire career with the Vikings. Since being drafted out of Oklahoma in 2007, he has rushed for 10,190 yards and scored 86 touchdowns.
04/16/15 - RB Adrian Peterson will be reinstated by the NFL on Friday (April 17), returning to active status for the first time since September, when child-abuse charges involving his 4-year-old son led to seven months on the sideline. Peterson was informed via a letter from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he is expected to satisfy his obligations to authorities in Minnesota and Texas, as well as additional counseling and treatment commitments Peterson made April 7 during a meeting with Goodell, the league said in a statement Thursday. Peterson will be eligible to participate in offseason conditioning and team workouts. The Vikings released a two-sentence statement Thursday: "The Minnesota Vikings have been informed by the NFL that Adrian Peterson has been reinstated. We look forward to Adrian rejoining the Vikings." When charges were first revealed in September, Peterson was placed on the commissioner's exempt list. After he agreed to a plea deal to one count of misdemeanor reckless assault on Nov. 4, Goodell suspended him on Nov. 18. A judge recently overturned the suspension, which removed him from the suspended list, but the league placed him back on exempt status. Being reinstated before the April 30 NFL draft makes Peterson eligible to be traded. Coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman have said the team has no plans to deal Peterson, who is owed $12.75 million in 2014. However, Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, has been adamant that the player's time in Minnesota is finished. Peterson has spent his entire career with the Vikings. Since being drafted out of Oklahoma in 2007, he has rushed for 10,190 yards and scored 86 touchdowns.
