Report: Six teams in the mix for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Vikings are reportedly going to give it one more week of searching for a trade partner for running back Adrian Peterson, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

A source told the newspaper if Peterson is not traded by next week, the Vikings will keep him. Minnesota is still reportedly talking with the Cardinals, Falcons, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers and Buccaneers to get a possible deal done, according to the source.

Peterson was reinstated last week by the league for his suspension stemming from child-abuse charges. He is under contract with the Vikings for the next three seasons for $43.25 million, including $12.75 in 2015.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan says he's never felt better
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said a change to his offseason workouts has helped him improve his overall health, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I feel better than I ever have," Ryan said. "That is one of the things that has allowed me to kind of get back into throwing a little bit more and spending some time on the field is kind of a change in everything, kind of day-to-day life and how you work out and all of those kind of things have helped me feel younger."

Ryan added that he doesn't anticipate having trouble learning new offensive coordinator Kyle Shannahan's offense.

"There is a lot stuff you might just have a thing here [or] there that needs to be tweaked," he said.
