Adrian Peterson expects backlash if he's ever cut
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the face of the franchise, and his likeness is being used in artists' renderings of the team's new stadium, which is scheduled to open in 2016. But will Peterson be on the team when the stadium opens

Peterson said Wednesday he understands he might not, reports USA Today. And he thinks if he's not on the team then fans would be quite unhappy.

"I think the organization would take a heavy hit – for real – more so from the fan base," Peterson said. "I don't think it would be like a LeBron (James) situation where they're burning my jersey, this, that and the other. They might be doing (the opposite) and not buying some season tickets."

When the stadium opens, Peterson will 31 years old. He has undergone surgeries in three straight offseasons and has a hefty contract, which is scheduled to pay him $58 million through 2017, none of it guaranteed.

Report: Vikes don't want to hold onto Adrian Peterson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/12/14) The Vikings would like to part ways with running back Adrian Peterson "sooner rather than later," reports Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. Peterson just turned 29 and is due to make base salaries of $11.75 million and $12.75 million the next two seasons.

Freeman contends that's "an impossible salary structure to pay a player in today's game, where the running back position has been greatly devalued."

An AFC general manager told Freeman he expects this season to be Peterson's last with Minnesota.

Vikings could draft a running back
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/14) The Vikings could draft a running back in the NFL Draft to help take the load off Adrian Peterson, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The report says the team is looking for a replacement for the departed Toby Gerhart and give Peterson a rest from time to time.

"He's getting to the point where you don't have to give him the ball 50 times a game for 16 games," said general manager Rick Spielman. "Adrian's the face of our franchise, but Norv (Turner) has a history of having two backs to keep him fresh, because I think it's very important as you go through the season that they're still strong in Week 16 and they're still strong when you get into the playoffs."

Minnesota doesn't have a surefire No. 2 back on the roster. Matt Asiata filled in for the injured Peterson and Gerhart in two games last December and performed admirably with 166 yards on 44 carries (a 3.8 average). But Asiata, entering his third season, is still raw.

After that, Minnesota has just Joe Banyard and Bradley Randle on the roster. They've mostly been practice squad players.

Healthy Adrian Peterson to see less carries, more catches
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who underwent groin surgery in late January, said he's at "about 80 percent right now," reports USA Today. He added he's "just really working on the strength and trying to get that strength back and balance."

Peterson needs to be healthy because the offense in Minnesota is changing under new coordinator Norv Turner. The Vikings plan to be more pass-happy in 2014.

"My rushing yards might not be up to par, but it's not about that," Peterson said. "It's all about winning. I'm trying to win a championship, so if that (means) taking less of a pounding and being more productive in the pass game, I'm all-in for it."

Peterson ran for 2,097 yards in his 2012 MVP season. But injuries limited him to 14 games in 2013, and he had an adductor repair and release in January — his third surgery in as many offseasons at age 29.

From that perspective, lightening Peterson's workload seems like a no-brainer, though he said he's excited to be more involved in the passing game under Turner, whose offenses always have at least one running back around 50 catches. Peterson's career high is 43.

"He's going to catch passes," Turner said. "You've got to try to utilize all the guys that can make plays, and I think you need to be able to run the ball in this league. But I think if all you do is run it, it gets real hard."

Adrian Peterson 'doing fantastic' in minicamp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who underwent groin surgery in late January, is participating in the team's minicamp, reports ESPN.com. "Adrian's doing fantastic," coach Mike Zimmer said. "He practiced yesterday, he's in good spirits. He's doing great."
