Adrian Peterson wants out of Minnesota, and will do anything — including blowing off invites from Vikings brass.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, Peterson’s agent rejected a dinner invite from Vikings GM, Rick Spielman.
#NFL source: #Vikings GM Rick Spielman requested dinner meeting w/ Adrian Peterson's agent at owner's meetings. It was rejected. Not good.

Here’s more from Robinson on the rejection:
The impasse between running back Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings has taken a more ominous turn. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman requested a dinner meeting with Peterson’s agent at the forthcoming owners meetings in Phoenix but was rejected, a source told Yahoo Sports. This comes after Peterson’s agent, Ben Dogra, told several media outlets over the past two days that the team said it would not cut the running back, who is slated to make $13 million in 2015 ($12.75 million base salary and a $250,000 workout bonus).
Dogra did not return messages seeking comment.
