Vikings, Adrian Peterson agree to restructured contract

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a restructured contract with star running back Adrian Peterson. He missed all but one game last season due to a child abuse case. “The Vikings and Adrian Peterson have mutually agreed to restructure the final three years of Peterson’s contract,” the team said in a statement. “This agreement is a win for both Adrian and the Vikings and is a positive step toward Adrian finishing his career as a Minnesota Viking,” general manager Rick Spielman said. “As we have consistently said, Adrian is a valuable part of the Vikings organization and we look forward to his return to the field.” Added Peterson: “I appreciate the Vikings for working together on this restructured contract, which provides additional security for me but also allows opportunities for me to further prove my value to the team and within the NFL It was important for me to continue my career in Minnesota, and I cannot wait to get on the field in front of Vikings fans again.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
