Minnesota Vikings admit they would love to have Adrian Peterson back

Published 12 Comments

Adrian Peterson's future is still up in the air after another court date recently, but the Minnesota Vikings have made their intentions very clear.

Rumours continue to circulate that Peterson is desperate for a trade. In fact, as we reported last week, that's even been touted as the reason he is in court fighting his suspension from the NFL.

Love To Have AP Back

However, speaking at the University of Minnesota Masonic Hospital yesterday, Vikings president Mark Wilf revealed that the coaches and owners at the Vikings would love to have the star running back on their roster next season.

“Adrian’s done a lot of good in this community. He’s done a lot for us on the football field, as well. Of course, he’s a Minnesota Viking, and we’d love to have him back."

"And of course, a lot depends on the NFL and steps he’s making in his own personal journey. That’s where we’re at with it," Wilf said as he opened the Wilf Family Center at the hospital.

That was the first time that a senior member of the Vikings organization has passed comment about Peterson at all since he was placed on the commissioner's exempt list back in September of last year. 

Cowboys Calling

The shared thoughts about Peterson are that he is seriously pushing for a trade, with the Dallas Cowboys his dream landing point. Peterson was born in Palestine, TX with the Cowboys being the team he supported growing up. 

If the Cowboys are tempted to make an offer for Peterson, it would see him replace DeMarco Murray - a fellow former Oklahoma Sooner. Some Cowboys fans have disagreed with the prospect of bringing AP in however, saying they'd rather keep the man the drafted in 2011.

The Cowboys and Vikings being involved in a trade for a star running back, hmm where have i heard this before? Something tells me the Vikings won't be getting eight picks in return however, no matter how much they would like to make up for the Great Trade Robbery.

So NFL fans what do you think, will Adrian Peterson be back in the purple of the Vikings next season or will be running out in Arlington? Tell us your thoughts in the comment section below...
