Vikings Rule Out Re-Signing Adrian Peterson

Vikings Rule Out Re-Signing Adrian Peterson

"With us signing (Latavius) Murray, Adrian will move on elsewhere".

The Ravens recently agreed on a deal with Danny Woodhead (three years, $8.8 million) at running back, and the market seems to be shaping up to favor buyers not sellers.

28 throughout his four-year tenure in Oakland, but that's the same number worn by Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, arguably the best running back in franchise history. The Vikings did not pick up the option on Peterson's contract and, on Thursday, confirmed they would be moving on from him.

He previously visited with the Seattle Seahawks, but the team later signed running back Eddie Lacy.

Murray, 27, rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns with the Raiders, including 788 yards and 12 touchdowns in 14 games last season.


The impact was immediate, with Peterson rushing for an National Football League single-game record 296 yards in his eighth game and second of six times in which he rushed for more than 200 yards in a game.

LeGarrette Blount is a free agent and can't expect more than another one-year deal to return to New England.

Murray took to Instagram on Thursday morning with a picture of Murray and Peterson from the Pro Bowl explaining why he won't don the same jersey number in Minnesota. I want to say to Vikings fans: I'm not here to replace #28, he's irreplaceable.

"When I saw that maybe this could be a team I would be playing for, obviously you think about those different scenarios", Murray said.

The Vikings already have landed one Packers free agent.
