Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports that Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf are “privately fuming” over the NFL’s decision to suspend RB Adrian Peterson for the 2014 season.
According to Hubbach, Minnesota has no plans to cut or trade Peterson during his suspension.
Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that Troy Vincent was the NFL executive who told Peterson that his time on the exempt list would be considered “time served.”
However, Vincent did tell Peterson that he needed to cooperate with the league.
“But Adrian, you’ve got to come talk,” Vincent recalled telling Peterson. “You, your team, your counselors, whoever. Just come and tell us where you are.“
