Could it be? Should it be? According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there is a strong belief that the Minnesota Vikings are not going to pick up Adrian Peterson’s six-million-dollar roster bonus. If they were to pick up the bonus it would set off an almost 12-million-dollar base salary for the aging and often injured back.
With the Vikings possibly not picking up the bonus Peterson could become a dreaded cap casualty. The other 31 NFL teams are licking their chops and evilly rubbing their hands together hoping he becomes available.
A few weeks ago Peterson was on ESPN’s First Take naming the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a potential landing spot for him if he was to ever leave Minnesota. With Kotter style of stick and go running game and the physicality he wants to bring, Peterson would be a great fit for the Bucs but only for the right price.
Lavonte David weighed in on the subject recently during his interview with PFT live, and feels that the addition of Peterson would bring “Experience, skill, work ethic, and a burning desire to win a super bowl.”
