    Should Vikes Give Peterson a New Deal Now?

    http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=444502

    Interesting article. IMO, I don't think we need to hash out the dough right now. Maybe we should consider it after this season. Still, the author has a point.

    No.
    As well as Peterson did, I'm scared he'll be a one-hit wonder.
    If he plays for 3 years consistantly, then sure give him a new deal, but the worst thing we can do is give him a boatload of guaranteed money, only to have him hurt himself or just not produce.
    Also, we don't really ahve the cap space to be giving out big bucks right now.
    There's some vets that will need resigning next year, and they won't be cheap.

    Yes, the author did fail to mention our cap situation. I agree with you too. I hope all the best for Peterson, but anything could happen.

    Also, if we give AD a new contract, than CT deserves a new one too.
    In games when AD struggled, CT bailed him out (ie. the San Fran game, 2nd Chicago)
    IMO, one wouldn't have done as well without the other.
    (well,
    Chester would have had more yards, but you get what I mean.)

    To soon to commit dollars to a guy who has a bit of a history of injuries.
    Maybe when he is two years out or so they could look at re-doing something as that would give the player a sense of security earlier than expected and the staff could sign him cheaper as they could expect the player to play out the second contract and could even extend it out over a longer period.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Next offseason is fair enough to start negotiations.
    And yes, if he has another season like last year, he deserves every penny of what he will get.

    Re: Should Vikes Give Peterson a New Deal Now?

    I can not see why they would want to do that. He still has a pretty long and good contract that I think fits everyone.

    In fact if they went for renegotiation at this point, I'd be on the brink of calling the FO ignorant without even looking into the contract

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Adrian already is one of the highest paid running backs thanks to the ridiculous top 10 draft pick inflation in the past 2 years.
    His contract has some very lucrative incentive bonuses (like rushing for 2000 yards, pro bowls etc.) and he achieved a lot of extra money last year because of it.

    There is absolutely no reason why he needs another deal.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
