General News (Wed Jan 28): was directed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to meet with a league-assigned psychiatrist following Peterson's suspension. The National Football League Players Association is now crying foul on the commissioner's mandated counseling, arguing that Goodell did not have the power to enforce such a stipulation. The NFLPA said the terms of Peterson's suspension violate the limits of Goodell's power under the collective bargaining agreement.

Falcons | Not pursuing Adrian Peterson (Sat Apr 25, 03:01 AM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not being pursued by the Atlanta Falcons, according to Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Our View: The Falcons are likely to draft a back this year, and Peterson is going to cost a lot in any trade scenario. Devonta Freeman is an interesting second-year back to monitor this season. He could be the lead runner in the Falcons RBBC.

Buccaneers | TB interested in Adrian Peterson? (Thu Apr 23, 06:22 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be of interest to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.

Our View: Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, recently posted a picture on social networking that featured him sitting in a chair--Peterson jersey behind him--wearing a Buccaneers hat. Tampa has the first-overall pick in the draft, but we can't imagine them giving that up--even for a talented back like Adrian Peterson. He's reinstated by the league, but where Peterson plays in 2015 is still a mystery.

Cowboys | Dallas not pursuing Adrian Peterson? (Thu Apr 23, 05:18 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may not be in the Dallas Cowboys' plans after all, according Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports. Robinson said the Cowboys have not spoken to the Vikings regarding Peterson.

Our View: It looks like the Cowboys are going to add a feature back through the draft. They'll be in the market for guys like Todd Gurley (Georgia) or Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin) in the first round of the draft. They added Darren McFadden in free agency earlier this year, but he's not the answer as a lead back.

Vikings | MIN wants to keep Adrian Peterson (Wed Apr 22, 02:13 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not expected to be traded by the Vikings unless the team is overwhelmed by an offer from another team, according to a source. The Vikings are confident that time will help their relationship with Peterson. A source said a recent report that stated the Vikings are looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in a trade for Peterson is not accurate, which may suggest the Vikings would be looking for even more in a trade.

Our View: This matches the mentality of a team that sees Peterson as still an elite RB option that they can get on board without any issues for this season. This could be posturing to extract the largest price for Peterson in a trade, as GM Rick Spielman has taken a gambler's approach to trade negotiations in the past.

Jaguars | JAX not interested in Adrian Peterson (Wed Apr 22, 12:53 AM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson might have a new home in 2015, but Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the team hasn't talked to Peterson despite a report the Jags were one of six teams interested in trading for him. 'No, not really,' Bradley said Tuesday, April 21. 'Not between (general manager Dave Caldwell). A while ago, but it was just conversation, not any direction that we would go.'

Our View: The Jaguars still don't see satisfied with their current RB group, so while the chances of Peterson coming to Duval could be disappearing, adding a member of this talented draft RB class is definitely in play.
