NFL: Adrian Peterson Will Return to Vikings & Participate in OTA’s After 9 Month Absence

There were many reports that Adrian Peterson wanted to be traded from the Minnesota Vikings after he felt they didn’t sufficiently support him during his legal troubles i.e his child abuse case.  After the Vikings made it publicly known they would not trade Peterson, he began to request more guaranteed money.  Peterson is scheduled to make $12.75 million in 2015 and has a contract that runs through 2017, but has no more guaranteed money in his deal, meaning the Vikings could cut the 30-year-old running back without having to pay him another dollar.  The Vikings have not reworked Peterson’s contract but he has decided to return and participate in OTA’s where his contract calls for him to earn a $250,000 workout bonus if he participates in all of the Vikings’ OTA’s and minicamp.  Peterson however said he has a different reason for returning.
