  • Vikings front office supportive of Adrian Peterson

    Published: Thu, Feb 12, 2015

    Is Adrian Peterson coming back to the Minnesota Vikings in 2015? The former OU running back seems to have the support of the Vikings' front office. Vikings chief operating officer Kevin Warren said Thursday morning in a conference call that he would welcome Peterson back to the team following his reinstation into the NFL. Peterson cannot be reinstated until April 15 following his indicment for injuring his son with a wooden switch. He was placed on the league's commissioner's exempt list on Sept. 17 after appearing in just one game in 2014. "I think I've made it very clear how I personally feel about Adrian, how our organization feels about him," Warren said. "(Vikings president) Mark Wilf made it very clear yesterday. ... Last year was a complicated year, at various levels, but once Adrian gets all of his items resolved with the NFL, is free to play again and rejoin our franchise, I think it's good for Adrian."
