Vikings fullback Jerome Felton opts out of contract

Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton is opting out of his contract.

The former Pro Bowl selection will be a free agent.

Felton didn't play as much last season after the NFL placed running back Adrian Peterson on the commissioner's exempt list following a child abuse case.

Felton signed a three-year, $7.5 million contract in 2013.

Felton is unlikely to return unless Peterson is back.
