Report: Peterson likely entering last season with Vikings

Adrian Peterson proved last season that he is still capable of carrying a full load and being one of the best running backs in the league even on the wrong side of 30. If he is just as productive this season, will that be enough to convince the Minnesota Vikings to keep him on the books for $18 million in 2017? Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press recently wrote that he expects...

Adrian Peterson: Any player not talking SB should be traded

After putting up a surprising 2015 campaign that saw them win the NFC North, the Minnesota Vikings head into the 2016 season with championship aspirations. A team with a bunch of young talent on both sides of the ball, Minnesota has become a trendy pick to come out of the ultra-competitive NFC.

Minnesota Vikings All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson proved naysayers wrong when he returned in 2015 from a year-long suspension. He led the league with 1,485 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns at the age of 30. This season, the sky could be the limit for AP who claims he is in even better physical shape than he was last season.

Adrian Peterson: Vikings 'have a good chance to win it this year'

The Minnesota Vikings have been on a climb ever since the 2013 season in which they finished 5-10-1.
