The agent for Adrian Peterson says that his client is not a good fit for the original franchise that drafted him and made him the teams face of the franchise.
Ben Dogra, Peterson’s agent, rejected the Vikings request for a dinner session at the NFL Annual Meeting, and now seems to be in agreement from NFL Network’s Albert Breer that Peterson still wants out of Minnesota.
Dogra stated Monday that it is not in Peterson’s best interest to play for the Vikings. The agent then confirmed to USA Today’s Jarrett Bell “We want out of Minnesota.”
The agent seems to be hoping that the Vikings will release Peterson, but that doesn’t seem likely, as they want something for him and can find it on the open market.
Peterson has three years and $45 million remaining on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed.
As for the Vikings, owner Mark Wilf responded Monday that Peterson is “an important part of the Minnesota Vikings and we look forward to him being part of our team in 2015.”
Look for the standstill to continue between the two sides.
