The Minnesota Vikings have decided to part ways with former NFL MVP and legendary team running back Adrian Peterson.
“All-Day” was due to count for an $18 million hit against the Vikings salary cap in 2017, which would have been twice as much as any other running back in the NFL.
The seven-time Pro Bowler and 2012 league MVP, Peterson, spent 10 years with the Minnesota Vikings where he established himself as one of the greatest running backs of all-time.
In ten season with the Vikings, Peterson played 123 games rushing for 11,747 total yards and 102 touchdowns scored.
With that said, Peterson could still end up back in Minnesota, this if he doesn’t field any better offers from other organizations.
Teams apparently considering going after Peterson include the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders.
