“Adrian’s not going anywhere,” Spielman said in an interview that aired partially on Thursday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN and in its entirety on Friday’s PFT Live. “He have him under contract, he is the face of our franchise, he is a blue-chip player, and we have a new coaching staff coming into place, and you know, [we're] very excited about what’s coming ahead for us.”
I found this funny since Spielman said the same thing about Harvin last season.
Personally I don't think the Vikings trade Peterson until after the new stadium opens if they do at all, everyone knows the team needs AP to sell tickets and merchandise. What I see happening is a contract restructure to lower cap hits for the incoming years. Unless Peterson demands a trade I don't see him getting traded just for the fact the Vikings cannot afford to trade him anytime soon. The team needs all the money they can get while playing at TCF.
