Adrian Peterson provides Vikings with five teams he would approve a trade to

The Colts were reportedly part of a five team list that Adrian Peterson provided the Minnesota Vikings with in which he would approve a trade to.

That list is as follows:

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Dallas Cowboys
  • San Diego Chargers
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The report was from yesterday. This would be opposite of other reports that said Peterson’s meeting with the Vikings ‘went well’.

I don’t put huge odds on Peterson ending up a Colt. I think it’s probable that the Vikings keep him, or the most likely scenario is that he heads to Dallas with Demarco Murray heading elsewhere for huge dollars that he can’t turn down.

I’m okay with the Colts giving Murray the huge dollars he will command, contingent on the fact that they’ll still have money left over to do the right thing and give Andrew Luck the record setting contract extension that he deserves before the 2015 regular season begins. This is not something ownership and the front office should drag out, even if it means passing on some pricey free agents.
