Adrian Peterson could leave the Minnesota Vikings

Adrian Peterson did his best do destroy his reputation and career as a pro football player in 2014 thanks to the child abuse scandal.

Peterson was suspended by the Minnesota Vikings for the incident and the handed a further suspension until the end of the season by Roger Goodell and the National Football League after his trial had ended.

And late in November of last year, Peterson himself addressed his own football career saying that a move away from Minnesota was entirely possible in order to give himself a clean slate to start from in an entire new state.

The Vikings themselves had never really adressed Peterson's future until now when head coach Mike Zimmer himself admitted that the star running back could well be on his way out.

2-Way Street

Appearing on today’s Pro Football Talk Live, Zimmer alluded to the possibility that the Vikings wouldn't stand in Peterson's way if he wanted to go.

“I would respect Adrian’s decision,” Zimmer said. “I’ll always be honest with him and up front but I’m gonna try to explain to him the reasons why I would like to him to be here.

“But it has to be a two way street and he has to get his life taken care of — but we’ll sit down and talk, but I’m a pretty good recruiter too," Zimmer added.

It will be interesting to monitor the Adrian Peterson situation in 2015. With Teddy Bridgewater as their set in stone QB, the Vikings could actually be okay if they got AP in to boost the offense.

So NFL fans what do you think. Where do you think AP will be playing in the 2015 season? Tell us the team in the comments below...
