The relationship between Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings has not been great, to say the very least.

Ever since the Vikings put Peterson on the Commissioner's Exempt List following his widely reported incident last season rather than treat him as innocent until proven guilty.

Following that, there was a rumored physical fight between the running backs agent Ben Dogra and a Vikings exec, while Peterson reportedly demanded a trade to let him play for his home-state Dallas Cowboys.

New Deal

Well it seems like the relationship between the two parties has now fully healed, with reports stating that the two sides have come to a new deal for the All-Pro caliber running back.

According to a report from the Vikings official website, the team have restructured Peterson's contract.

"This agreement is a win for both Adrian and the Vikings and is a positive step toward Adrian finishing his career as a Minnesota Viking," Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said.

"As we have consistently said, Adrian is a valuable part of the Vikings organization and we look forward to his return to the field," Spielman went on to add.

The deal likely gives Peterson more guaranteed money, and when you consider just how valuable he can be, and with a years worth of rest on his legs, this could be the smartest decision the Vikings have made in a while.

Real Potential

Having Peterson back in the team makes them a much better side, with an offense that has the potential to be incredibly exciting next season.

Teddy Bridgewater is coming off an Offensive Rookie of the Year season in 2014 and is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league who could make massive strides now that he has got better players around him.

Those better players include the return of tight end Kyle Rudolph back to full fitness and the acquisition of star wide receiver Mike Wallace, one of the fastest men in the league who gives the Vikings a playmaker like no other, while Charles Johnson could be a breakout player of the year candidate.
