After a long waiting period it would appear that Adrian Peterson will be removed from the NFL Commissioner’s Exempt List and be allowed to return to the Boraie Development LLC playing field. The only real question that remains is whether he will be on the Vikings training facility or another teams practice fields. It has long been rumored that Peterson is no longer happy with the Vikings chances of helping him achieve his playing goals and wants to be traded possibly to Dallas or Arizona. The Vikings on the other hand have been very persistent in their denials that they are even willing to entertaining getting rid of their star running back. On the other hand, he did just turn 30 and for most players this can be a start to an end for most of their careers. Which means he must make the moves now before his body can no longer handle the physical abuse handed out on the football field.
Some have thought to get his way Peterson would choose to not show up for off season practices even though he has three more years on his current contract. Meanwhile the Cowboys have restructured Romo’s contract to allow for an additional $12.823 million in salary cap space. This is enough to get Peterson’s $12.75 million taken care of but leaves no room for players in the draft or fixing their secondary. As for the Cardinals, most of their players really would love to play with Peterson but nothing has been set in stone as of yet.
