Regardless of what Adrian Peterson’s agent says or does, it seems like the Vikings All Pro runner would still play for the Vikings. According to his father he has not thrown that avenue out the window.
“He is open to returning to the Vikings,” Nelson Peterson told the Pioneer Press on Monday. “He hasn’t closed the door on saying, ‘I won’t play for the Vikings.’ He hasn’t demanded a trade.”
This comes despite the fact that, according to Nelson, Peterson feels like Vikings chief operating officer Kevin Warren was trying to keep him off the field. Nelson also denied reports that Peterson requested a trade to Dallas and said that Adrian does not feel any ill will toward the Vikings’ fan base.
“Kevin Warren was a major player in the push last year to not have Adrian reinstated,” Nelson said. “We had our sources that we knew that Kevin wasn’t working for Adrian to get him back on the field and was working to keep Adrian off the field.”
