Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has made it clear that they will not be trading running back Adrian Peterson.
“Adrian is not going anywhere,” he said via TwinCities.com. “We have him under contract. He’s the face of our franchise. He is a blue-chip player. And we have a new coaching staff in place, and (the Vikings are) very excited about what’s coming ahead for us.”
The best thing the Vikings could do is get rid of Peterson and use the draft picks that they would received in exchange for him to continue to attempt to build a winning team. Let’s be honest, they’re not winning a Super Bowl within the next few years.
