Adrian Peterson Says It Might Be Time for a ‘Fresh Start’ Elsewhere
The Adrian Peterson saga continues as he says it might be time to start new somewhere else.
Peterson opened up for the first time since the child abuse charges were filed last September. USA Today's Tom Pelissero caught up with Peterson to discuss the process and the future.
The running back knows there are people within the organization that support him, however he also knows that it doesn't extend fully.
"I know who loves me. The coaches and the players, it's not going to be a problem. I've felt so much support from those guys. The organization, I know there's people in the organization that support me and there's people that I know internally that has not been supporting me"
With some members of the organization not supporting him, Peterson told Pelissero that he's thought about a new start.
"maybe it's best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else."
Peterson has a contract with the Vikings through 2017, but has been paid all of his guaranteed money according to Spotrac. He will cost the Vikings $15,400,000 in cap space in 2015, $15 million in 2016, and $17 million in 2017. That is unless the Vikings elect to not move on with Peterson.
