Minnesota Vikings Runningback Adrian Peterson has been one of the best in the league for a number of years now, but he could soon find himself without a team.

It comes as a result of allegations of child abuse surfaced late last week and since then, Peterson's future has been in doubt.

It is a tough time for Peterson right now, I imagine he has been told that there is help out there for him from many different sources.

I don't know who will have told him to get help, but now there is one person offering her services, that I for one, never thought I'd see in the NFL.

TV personality Jo Frost - better known for her TV show Supernanny, has offered to lend her experienced hand to the disgraced NFL star.

This is more than just words for Supernanny, she has contacted the NFL about the possibility of working with Peterson and trying to help him.

She claims: "He needs parental coaching,

"And I hope he picks up the phone."

It may not be quite as simple as she makes it out to be but it is a true showing of her devotion to parent that she is getting in contact.

Help from a friend

This story may sound random and fairly nonsensical but there is actually a pretty good back story for why Supernanny wants to help Peterson.

The two recently worked together on an EpiPen advertising campaign and since the allegations were made about Peterson, she said she has felt very saddened.

To be clear, she is not sad with regards the allegations made against her friend, but sad with how he disciplines his child.

So Supernanny could be coming to the rescue of Peterson and although we don't actually know if he will pick up the phone to her yet, we can only be left to assume that it will still take a miracle for him to return to the top of the NFL.

Viking no more?

Peterson has been placed on the Commissioner's exempt list as a result of the allegations made against him.

Clearly the Vikings organization feel he needs to bring his personal life under control before he can return to the field.

Although, it seems that there may be a version of the Minnesota Vikings future where Adrian Peterson doesn't feature at all.

Who knows what the future holds for Peterson, but I think its safe to say his NFL return is still some time away.
