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.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson discontent in Minnesota? (Wed Mar 25, 04:30 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back in Minnesota, but the question is if Peterson wants to come back. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't believe Peterson would be a disruption if he did return to the Vikings. 'I want him to want to be [in Minnesota], like I want all of my players to want to be there. I've been in situations before that I thought were not the best situations.'

Our View: Back and forth and back and forth. Peterson wants out according to his agent, but the Vikings are not budging. Zimmer added that he thinks his football relationship with Peterson is a good one in its current state. We'll see something give sometime....stay tuned.

Vikings | No plans to trade Adrian Peterson (Wed Mar 25, 10:43 AM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is disgruntled and reportedly wants out of Minnesota, but head coach Mike Zimmer said the team has no plans to trade him.

Our View: That's the plan right now, but if Peterson is unhappy the team might be persuaded to change their mind. What else could change their mind is a couple of premium picks. Peterson is still one of the best backs in the game, and there would be more than a few teams interested in adding the superstar back.

Vikings | Agent wants Adrian Peterson to move on (Mon Mar 23, 07:48 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, said Monday, March 23, that he doesn't think 'it's in Adrian's best interest to play in Minnesota' in 2015 and beyond.

Our View: Peterson remains under contract with the Vikings, and the team brass expects him to remain in Minnesota. Dogra also refused a meeting with general manager Rick Spielman several days ago.

Vikings | MIN GM expects Adrian Peterson to stay (Mon Mar 23, 05:55 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be part of the Vikings next season, according to general manager Rick Spielman. 'Adrian's a member of our football team,' Spielman said. 'He is under contract with us, and we are focused on the 2015 season and expect Adrian to be a part of that.'

Our View: Peterson has met with team officials twice this offseason to discuss his future. Spielman would not say if Peterson has asked for a trade or if the team has received interest from other teams.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants out of Minny? (Mon Mar 23, 12:42 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's preference is to play elsewhere than with the Vikings in 2015, according to a league source. He is under contract through the 2017 season and is scheduled to make $12.75 million this year. The Vikings look like they'd be willing to pay him in 2015, and a restructured contract would likely be appealing for Peterson. Minnesota could call Peterson's bluff and force him to decide between playing this year or sitting out a second straight season.

Our View: Here we go again. Every week it seems like there's a news item about Peterson being unhappy with the Vikings. If they're not going to release him (as they've indicated), then the Vikings could put Peterson on the trade block.
