Mike Zimmer: 'No plans' to trade Adrian Peterson
by Larry Hartstein |

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he expects running back Adrian Peterson to play for the team this year despite Peterson's agent saying recently his client wants out of Minnesota.

"I'm not going to speculate on what he wants or doesn't want. He's under contract for three more years with us and that's why you sign these contracts, and why you get these big bonuses," Zimmer said, per "We're planning on him being back. We have no plans to trade Adrian."

Peterson, 30, spent all but one game last season on the commissoner's exempt list due to his child abuse case. He reportedly is upset the Vikings didn't do enough to get him back on the field.

Vikings' Mike Zimmer still wants Adrian Peterson back in 2015
by Jason Butt |

Though Adrian Peterson's agent said it's in his client's best interest to leave Minnesota, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is still looking forward to the running back's return in 2015. 

"Really, we are just looking forward to getting him back and getting back with his teammates and playing for us," Zimmer said on PFT Live. "I can’t speculate on what other people say. All I know is how I feel and where we feel as an organization.”

Zimmer is confident and hopeful that at the end of the day the two sides can come to an understanding resulting in Peterson staying in Minnesota. Peterson's camp has been lobbying for a trade. 

“One of the things that everybody in the world remembers is Adrian Peterson as a Minnesota Viking," Zimmer said. "When he gets a chance to get into the Hall of Fame, when he gets to go in there, he’s going to want to go in with how everyone represented him and remembered him.  I just feel that’s how it’s going to work out.”

Adrian Peterson's agent: We want out of Minnesota
by Brandon Wise |

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson made a splash Monday without saying a word. Instead, his agent, Ben Dogra, made it clear what Peterson is looking for.

"We want out of Minnesota," Dogra said to USA Today Monday.

Peterson has been rumored to want a fresh start with a new team for weeks, but this is the first time a comment has been made publicly. 

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman. however, doesn't think that will be happening any time soon.

"Adrian's a member of our football team," Spielman said. "He's under contract with us. We are focused on the 2015 season and expect Adrian to be a part of that. Our whole focus is getting ready for that season with Adrian."

Peterson was suspended for 15 games in 2014 as a result of a child abuse case.

Report: Adrian Peterson's agent declines meeting with Vikings
by Jason Butt |

The Vikings want to keep Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. Peterson and his camp want out. That's been established for a while. It doesn't appear there's much of a chance for the two sides to find common ground either. 

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman requested to meet with Peterson's agent Ben Dogra for dinner at the upcoming owners meetings. Dogra, however, declined to do so. 

Peterson's camp, per the report, would like the running back to be traded or offered more guaranteed money with the Vikings. With his workout bonus included, Peterson is expected to earn $13 million in 2015. 

Peterson is under contract through 2017. The Cardinals are reportedly open to trading a second-rounder to the Vikings for Peterson, and would consider working out a new contract.
