Vikings

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said that: “We expect Adrian Peterson to be a part of our football team.”

“I think our whole organization is on that same page (about wanting Peterson back),’’ Spielman said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “What team wouldn’t want an Adrian Peterson talent? He’s unique player that you don’t see come around too often and Adrian’s been a key part of our organization. He’s made a mistake. He’s doing everything and he’s got to follow through and rectify and do the things the NFL is requiring him to do.”

He’s made a mistake. He’s doing everything and he’s got to follow through and rectify and do the things the NFL is requiring him to do.”
