Is Adrian Peterson demanding too much money?

Adrian Peterson has restructured his deal to stay in Minnesota for another three years

Adrian Peterson will find a new home but where will he land?

Adrian Peterson was scheduled to make around 14 million dollars for the 2017 season, that will not happen as the Vikings plan to let the veteran running back leave via free agency.  Many teams would love to have AP, but there is an issue. The 31 year old back wants to still be paid like he is the best running back in the NFL.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Adrian Peterson has generated very little interest from teams since the Vikings announced they will be releasing him. A lot of that could have to do with the amount of money the seven-time Pro Bowler is looking to make.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the biggest name of the bunch, isn’t generating significant dollars via the wink-nod this-conversation-never-happened conversations (at the Scouting Combine). Unless the numbers climb, his best play may be to sit and wait for an inevitable injury to a tailback, which would allow him to skip the grind of the offseason program and possibly some, most, or all of training camp. At some point, Peterson may have to ask himself whether it’s worth continuing at all, given the money that quite possibly will (or won’t) be on the table.

I still want to see Adrian Peterson in a Raiders uniform.  It would be the best 14 million ever spent.
