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 Tuesday's workout will cost him $250,000 in bonuses if he does not attend 90 percent of OTAs and minicamps.
Peterson has three years, $44.25 million left on his contract with Minnesota.
Mike Zimmer has expressed optimism that underachieving
Patterson took a step back in 2014 after a mediocre rookie year. He played in every game, but managed just 33 receptions for 384 yards and one touchdown. He has since stated that 2015 is his make-or-break year and is apparently acting like it in the offseason.
"He's done real well," Zimmer told Fox Sports North. "He's running routes good. He's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed."
Walsh said there's been "a little bit of communication" about a new deal.
"I would love to stay a Viking," he said. "This is the team that drafted me and put that faith in me to be an NFL kicker. But at the same time, I’ve had a Pro Bowl year here, I’ve had success and there’s been a lot of long attempts that we’ve made, so the numbers are going to have to be right for both of us. But when it comes down to it, I hope I can stay with the Vikings."
"[He's] the guy," Bridgewater said via Pro Football Talk. "Besides the injuries and the hits and everything, he had a pretty successful career. He's a Hall of Famer for sure, multiple Super Bowls, and that's something I look forward to doing. Hopefully, I can win more Super Bowls."
Heady stuff for a guy merely heading into his second season and playing for a team that has never won a Super Bowl. But Bridgewater showed flashes last year, completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,919 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was particularly impressive down the stretch, hitting on 73 percent of his passes and averaging 273 yards in his last four games.
"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.
