Report: Team wants Peterson to be Viking for life

By Matthew Coller

Ian Rapaport of NFL Network is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings want Adrian Peterson to remain with the team after this season and possibly through the rest of his career.

“It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Peterson in the same purple-trimmed uniform in 2017,” Rapaport wrote.

Following the star running back’s decision to undergo surgery that would keep him out 3-4 months rather than return to play sooner with a different procedure, there has been natural speculation about whether Peterson would be let go after next season. His contract situation is untenable considering he is owed $12 million in salary and a $6 million roster bonus. Rapaport reports that the Vikings will not keep him under those terms.
