Adrian Peterson could be traded by the Minnesota Vikings, we all know that fact by now, but some more information has been revealed today that not every fan in the NFL Universe will know.

Peterson has arguably been the hottest topic in the NFL ever since he was indicted for allegedly abusing his four-year-old son last year, before he was then placed on the NFL's exemption list.

The star running back has since been removed from the exemption list, and is now the subject of huge interest from the rest of the NFL, with a recent report revealing that six teams are interested in Peterson.

Six teams interested

Minnesota Vikings certainly don't want to trade Adrian Peterson, but they are also well aware that the running back is interested in a fresh start somewhere else.

It's said that the Vikings will make Peterson stay against his will, but that they could still be interested to deal if an offer blows them away.

Pre-draft trade only

We don't know whether or not Peterson will be traded yet, but we do now know who are the interested parties, and ProFootballTalk has also revealed that any trade for Peterson has to happen before or during the draft.

"According to one report, the options are Arizona, Atlanta, Dallas, Jacksonville, San Diego and Tampa Bay," ProFootballTalk reported.

"Those are the six teams named by an anonymous source who told the Pioneer Press that a trade could get done before or during the draft, but probably wouldn’t happen after that if it hasn’t happened by then."

Cowboys interested

Out of the interest parties listed above, Dallas Cowboys are probably the team that is most likely to make a crazy offer. Jerry Jones is a known admirer of Peterson and Dallas has a need for a running back.

Plus, Jerry Jones is well known for going a little bit crazy around draft time, so don't be surprised if the Cowboys rock the draft with a huge trade during the first round.

Should the Vikings trade Peterson and who should make a play for him? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
