Vikings GM: We ‘Expect’ Adrian Peterson To Be Part Of Team
INDIANAPLIS, IN -- Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says he expects star running back Adrian Peterson to stay with the team this season.
Several high-ranking Vikings officials have expressed their desire to bring Peterson back in recent weeks, and Spielman's comments to reporters at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis were the strongest yet.
Spielman said he believes the "whole organization is on that same page" about Peterson returning once his NFL suspension is lifted. He was punished under the league's personal conduct policy for the child abuse case he was involved in.
Spielman, however, declined to comment about whether or not the Vikings would ask Peterson to restructure his contract.
His deal calls for a salary cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015.
