NFL Notes: Adrian Peterson, Dolphins, Giants, & Lions

Adrian Peterson

Jason Cole, citing two sources close to Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, reports that the plan right now is still for Peterson to sit out the rest of the offseason.

However, Peterson was reportedly “shaken” by the comments made by Vikings HC Mike Zimmer, who said that he can either play for Minnesota or no one.

According to Cole, this is now a test of will in regards to what Peterson is willing to do.
