Vikings' Zimmer says Peterson won't have issues with return
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

If Vikings running back Adrian Peterson eventually decides to report to the team, coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't anticipate there being any problems with Peterson and the team, reports 1500ESPN.com.

"That's a lot of ifs, nuts and candies and buts, there," Zimmer said. "I don't think there will be any issues, no."

Peterson, 30, is under contract with the Vikings for the next three seasons, but he has yet to attend any of the team's voluntary workouts during the offseason. Peterson missed 15 games last season due to being placed on the commissioner's exempt list.

Adrian Peterson's agent wants long-term commitment from Vikings
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

After the agent for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tried unsuccessfully to get his client traded, he asked the team to commit to Peterson long term. 

On Thursday night, agent Ben Dogra said that the Vikings told him Peterson was not going to be traded.

"One of the things that I appreciate with the Vikings is their resolve to say 'we're not trading him,'" Dogra told USA TODAY. "That tells me they value him not only as a football player, but what he's done for the organization. ... But actions speak louder than words. If that's going to happen, and you want to keep him, then show him a commitment to make him retire as a Viking."

That commitment would include guaranteeing part of Peterson's $46 million contract owed him over the next three years.

Vikings' Spielman on Adrian Peterson: 'Nothing has changed'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Speaking after his team selected cornerback Trae Waynes with the 11th pick of the draft, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman was asked about the status of running back Adrian Peterson.

"Nothing has changed with Adrian, end of story," Spielman said, curtly, per 1500ESPN.com.

Spielman answered similarly when faced with a follow-up question. He said earlier this week that he had "no interest" in dealing the running back.

RB Adrian Peterson says it 'would be nice' to play with Cowboys
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Disgruntled Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said it "would be nice" to play for the Cowboys during an interview while attending Tuesday's Mavericks-Rockets game in Houston, per the Dallas Morning News

Peterson grew up near Dallas, and has expressed his interest not to play for the Vikings this season after his suspension in 2014. But Minnesota remains steadfast in its position to keep Peterson, and the Cowboys have had very little to say about the matter heading into Thursday's draft.

Vikings' Rick Spielman on Adrian Peterson: No interest in trading him
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said he has no interest in trading running back Adrian Peterson, reports the Associated Press.

Various teams are reportedly interested in acquiring Peterson. He was recently reinstated by the NFL after missing 15 games last season due to being placed on the commissioner's exempt list.

Peterson is under contract with the Vikings for the next three seasons. He has yet to attend any of the team's voluntary workouts during the offseason. 

"But I think if our organization didn't believe in Adrian Peterson, he probably still wouldn't be here today," Spielman said, per 1500ESPN.com. "That's from our ownership on down. We believe in Adrian Peterson, but we also know we're a pretty good football team with Adrian in our backfield."
