Adrian Peterson feel it might be best to move on from Minnesota

adrian petersonAdrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings said in an interview with Tom Pelissero of USA Today that he would return to the Vikings if the appeal of his suspension results in a reinstatement between now and the end of the regular season, and that Peterson has given extensive thought to the possibility that “maybe it’s best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else.”

“I would love to go back and play in Minnesota to get a feel and just see if my family still feels comfortable there,” Peterson said.  “But if there’s word out that hey, they might release me, then so be it.  I would feel good knowing that I’ve given everything I had in me.”


There’s actually no “word out” that the Vikings might release Peterson.  The Vikings have been adamant about their belief that Peterson is a Viking.  If anything, the Vikings would want to trade Peterson in lieu of letting him walk away.

“I would have to get back in the community and get a feel,” Peterson said.  “I know who loves me. The coaches and the players, it’s not going to be a problem. I’ve felt so much support from those guys.  The organization, I know there’s people in the organization that support me and there’s people that I know internally that has not been supporting me.”
