MINNEAPOLIS, MN (The Spread) - According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the agent for Adrian Peterson met with the Vikings on Monday but no resolution for the running back's future was made.
The two sides are clearly at a stalemate, with Peterson wanting out of Minnesota and the Vikings maintaining that he's not going anywhere. Of course, the Vikings may also want him gone but they can't intimate that and destroy Peterson's trade value, so the best thing for a clean breakup is for AP and his agent to play along.
Peterson is still under contract with the Vikings through the 2017 season and while the Arizona Cardinals have reportedly shown interest in acquiring the 30-year-old back, they also don't want to pay his hefty salary. Peterson may have to agree to a contract restructure if he wants to get out of Minnesota this offseason.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Vikings are 50/1 long shots to win the 2016 Super Bowl while the Cardinals are 16/1. Arizona's odds would certainly improve with the addition of Peterson.
