What could the Vikings land for Adrian Peterson?

adrian petrsonThe Minnesota Vikings would be crazy to trade the best running back in the NFL wouldn’t they? Well not so fast, The Vikings have initially taken an “all options on the table” approach to the future of running back Adrian Peterson, but one report says the scope is narrower than that.

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, the “only certainty is Peterson won’t be released” as a result of his indictment on felony child abuse charges in Texas.

So what does that mean? Could AP be traded?  Well according to Pro Football Talk; Owner Zygi Wilf scheduled a conference call Sunday night with General Manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer to discuss their next move.

With Peterson likely facing a suspension for 6 games, what would a team be willing to give up for All Day? Well if you remember correctly the Herschel Walker trade was the biggest trade in NFL history. The Herschel Walker trade was the largest player trade in the history of the National Football League.It involved 18 players and draft picks. The trade was made on October 12, 1989, between the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings.

Well we already know that the Dallas Cowboys had interest in Peterson the Texas native. A matter of fact, Jerry Jones spoke to him on the phone and Peterson did not dispute the fact that he stated he wouldn’t mind playing for the Cowboys. Well could we see another monster trade between the Cowboys and the Vikings?
