Adrian Peterson has become the number one talked about player in the NFL during the last few weeks. Ever since he was reinstated by the NFL, trade talk regarding the star running back has intensified.
As many as six teams have been linked with the 30-year-old tailback, with a trade to the Dallas Cowboys remaining Peterson's "dream scenario."
Even though an array of NFL teams have Peterson on their list of desires this offseason, Minnesota Vikings have remained firm in the assertion that Peterson will stay with them unless they are blown away by an offer.
Trade will not happen
The truth is, while many NFL teams across the league would love to blow away the Vikings with an epic trade offer, the likeliness of any team cooking up an offer able to tempt Minnesota is very unlikely.
Furthermore, NFL media insider Ian Rapoport stated on Monday that any deal for Peterson is looking more and more unlikely by the day.
These claims have also been backed up by Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, who reported that only a "sledgehammer" of an offer will persuade the Vikings to deal Peterson.
Should the Vikings trade Peterson?
It is time for us all to wake up and smell the salt. A trade deal is not going to be done. For all the talk about a trade with the Cowboys, a recent report stated that Dallas have not even contacted Minnesota over a potential trade for Peterson.
It's clear that the Vikings are pretty set, and Peterson might just have to get used to the idea of staying in Minnesota for at least another season.
Should Minnesota trade Peterson? Let us know in the comments section below.
