We are already going through a very eventful NFL off-season and we haven't even reached free agency yet.

With big question marks surrounding men like DeMarco Murray, Randall Cobb and of course, two of the brightest prospects set to come through the draft for several years in Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston, we are set for an off-season that will keep us talking.

Despite many of last seasons biggest names set to test free agency and create headlines, one of the men who is making the most headlines didn't even play in the league last season.

Minnesota Vikings runningback Adrian Peterson is set to return to the league in 2015 following his one year ban by the league.

However it has become increasingly obvious that the former NFL MVP doesn't want to return to Minnesota.


Everyone was expecting this to be a run of the mill war of words between the two that will either end with Peterson being released or once again donning the purple and white of the Vikings.

However, according to reports coming out of last weeks scouting combine in Indianapolis, there was an altercation between Peterson's agent Ben Dogra and Vikings Vice President of Football Operations Rob Brzezinsk.

ESPN has reported that Dogra and Brzezinsk had to be separated at the Combine with Dogra telling the Vikings VP that his client will never return to the franchise.

According to sources, the altercation with Brzezinsk wasn't the only confrontation that Dogra had with executives or other agents at the combine.

No-one reportedly involved has publicly commented on the incidents but it certainly looks like relations between Peterson and the Vikings are at an all time low.

What next for AP?

Peterson only played one game in the 2014 season before he was suspended and placed on the commissioners exempt list.

He can be re-instated on April 15th but has already stated that the lack of support he received from the Vikings has left him disillusioned with the franchise.

Questions now linger around Peterson's future with many NFL fans feeling very confident that he won't be returning to Minnesota.

With the Dallas Cowboys reportedly being the team in the lead should he be released from the Vikings, Peterson should be set to give us a huge talking point in the off-season.
