Adrian Peterson returning to Vikings, will attend Tuesday's OTA
by Staff |

Adrian Peterson said he is returning to the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, telling the Associated Press he still has love for the team after nine months away.

He told the AP via email he is excited to put on a uniform again after missing the final 15 games last season while facing child abuse charges in Texas.

"I've been away from the game for an entire season," Peterson wrote to the AP. "I wanted the chance to be around the players and coaches, the guys that really matter to me."

Peterson missed three practices last week, and told the AP a family commitment caused that absence, though he tweeted last weed he was looking for longer-term security. He told the news service, "it's normal procedure for any player in my position to want to secure his future."

Vikings' Adrian Peterson on absence from OTAs: 'It's business'
by R.J. White |

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said in a statement on Wednesday that his absence from OTAs has "nothing to do with wanting to be traded," ESPN reports.

"The reason I'm not attending OTAs has nothing to do with wanting to be traded. It's about securing my future with the Vikings. It's business, not personal and I understand that firsthand. Go Vikings."

It was reported earlier Wednesday that coach Mike Zimmer said that Peterson could "either play for us or not play." The running back has expressed frustration with team management for not showing him support during his legal case for child abuse.

Vikings' Zimmer says Peterson 'can either play for us or not play'
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he isn't worried about disgruntled running back Adrian Peterson's absence from OTAs, saying that Peterson "can either play for us or not play."

Peterson has been steadfast in his desire to leave Minnesota and the Vikings have been equally resolute in keeping the All-Pro running back in the fold. The stalemate figures to go on for quite a while, but Zimmer is focusing his energies elsewhere. 

"I'm not worried about it," he said. "I got 89 guys out here I'm coaching and trying to get better."

Peterson is frustrated with management in Minnesota for not showing him support through his legal case for child abuse. Peterson has not participated in any offseason activities so far, but skipping workouts will cost him $250,000 in bonuses if he does not attend 90 percent of OTAs and minicamps.
