Adrian Peterson's Time With The Vikings Is Likely Over

Author

17 March, 2017

Murray, who spent the first four seasons of his National Football League career with the Raiders before signing with the Vikings early Thursday morning, said he's aware of the obstacles the Vikings offensive line faced in 2016. His addition likely means the end of the Adrian Peterson era in Minnesota.

There is some speculation the Raiders may sign Adrian Peterson, the free agent from the Vikings who apparently won't return to Minnesota now that Murray has signed.

The Vikings declined their option on Peterson's contract for 2017 and made him a free agent for the first time.

Lacy's decision ends chances of Peterson perhaps signing with Seahawks after he had visited with them Sunday and Monday.

Peterson's father, Nelson, may have poisoned the well when he complimented the Oakland Raiders offensive line at the expense of Minnesota's blocking unit.

Murray arrived in Minnesota on Tuesday, met with the team on Wednesday and ultimately secured a deal by the wee hours Thursday morning.

If the documents turn out to be genuine they represent another massive breach of security for the U.S. intelligence community. Google, Apple, Microsoft and Cisco Systems, who all have products mentioned in the documents, did not immediately comment.

Murray, meanwhile, said earlier Thursday that he would not request to continue wearing the No. 28 he wore in Oakland.

Peterson, however, is 31, and running backs - even the best ones - can rapidly go downhill at that age.

"There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28", Murray wrote. Many people don't know, but I wore the#28 as a kid because of Fred Taylor who played for the Jaguars at the time.

Murray proved to be a valuable back and one well more than worth the sixth-round pick the Raiders spent on him in the 2013 draft. He has yet to sign with another team.

Murray rushed for 2,194 yards on 175 carries his senior season en route to being named the New York State Class D player of the year.
