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?

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.
