Adrian Peterson is back in the NFL, but he’s likely to continue working out on his own. The Star-Tribune is reporting that Peterson is sure to skip OTAs — while also forfeiting a $250K workout bonus.
It’s interesting that on Monday, NFL players have the option of reporting to a team workout. The word is that Peterson would receive $250,000 if he reported to the Vikings camp. But nobody expects him to report under any circumstances.
The Vikings insist they will not trade Peterson and that they expect him to make quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s development that much easier if he is in their backfield this season.
Now that the NFL has made Peterson eligible to play, I expect Zygi Wilf and his family to make every effort to get him in uniform, including renegotiating his contract so that Peterson receives a lot of guaranteed money.
Peterson has been working out at home in Texas, and reportedly looks amazing.
