Adrian Peterson in court to reduce suspension and leave Minnesota Vikings

Football News

Adrian Peterson is in court again, this time with the NFL, to ensure his suspension gets reduced so he can be traded.

According to reports from ProFootballTalk, the real reason that the Minnesota Vikings star is pushing so hard to have his suspension rescinded or lessened is so that he can leave the team.

Trading Places

Peterson is pushing to be reinstated on or before March 10th, the official first day of the 2015 NFL season. This also happens to be the first day that players can be traded between teams. 

There are strong rumours circling that Peterson is desperate to be traded to the Dallas Cowboys, his home state team and the side he has supported since a youngster, where he grew up in Palestine, TX.

If the Cowboys are tempted to make an offer for Peterson, it would see him replace DeMarco Murray - a fellow former Oklahoma Sooner. Some Cowboys fans have disagreed with the prospect of bringing AP in however, saying they'd rather keep the man the drafted in 2011.
