Adrian Peterson's future has been one of the hottest topics in the NFL for several months, but it currently looks like he will almost certainly be staying with the Minnesota Vikings.

Ever since Peterson was placed on the NFL commissioner's exemption list last season after his child abuse indictment, the tailback has been the subject of intense trade talk.

But that trade talk stopped when the 2015 NFL Draft came and went last month, with any trade for Peterson all but ruled out post-draft.

Just bizarre

Peterson will almost certainly be with Minnesota next season, but don't think for a second that means the controversy and bizarre headlines coming out of Minnesota have stopped.

The Vikings and their head coach Mike Zimmer expect Peterson to be back at their facilities at some point in the next couple of months, but Zimmer still doesn't know exactly when to expect Peterson.

"I think I do have an indication," Zimmer said, via ESPN Radio, NFL.com reported. "It's up to Adrian, really. He's the guy you should ask. We'd like all our players here. It's the voluntary time of year right now and it's his decision in what he wants to do."

Worrying times?

Peterson looks set to sit out most or all of the voluntary workouts, and the fact that Zimmer doesn't know exactly when he will be back is quite worrying for Vikings fans.

For Minnesota to truly progress during quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's second year in the NFL, they need as many of their key cogs in place from the start of training camp, and this latest news hinders that from happening.

But what do you think NFL fans? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
