Vikings controversial RB Adrian Peterson stays in Minnesota, not even to Dallas Cowboys

The Adrian Peterson controversy might have been placed into the grave as Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expressed a simple choice for the running back.

“He’s not going to play for anybody else,” Zimmer told the assembled media at offseason workouts.

Peterson has been in so many stories regarding his future after the NFL lifted his ban from playing.

“He’s missed a lot of OTAs over the course of his career. I’m not worried about it,” Zimmer said. “I’ve got 89 guys out here that I’m coaching to try and get better.”

Peterson has not joined the team for any voluntary workouts this offseason. Zimmer also added that the running back provided no indication as to when he’ll be in those OTAs.

The Vikings management is strong in its stand that there’s no trade to be happened for Peterson, who continues have resentment over his team after failing to help or give him support in during his periolous days last season when he was indicted. Although Peterson can ultimately end his career, it’s hard to imagine the game’s best running back walking away at 30, and with more than $40 million on the table.

With Peterson on the roster, the Vikings will be a contender. Zimmer understands that he has to put a strong statement on Peterson so that trade rumors regarding the running back will go away. At this moment, Peterson is a Viking.
