Adrian Peterson Has Priced Himself Out Of Green Bay

Predictable.

That’s all we can say about this.

The Green Bay Packers are/were interested in former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. They still have “some” interest in him, but that interest is predicated on what happens during the draft, which means said interest may be zero after the draft.

If the Packers are so interested in Peterson, why don’t they just bring him in?

Because that dummy thinks this is 2012 and he should be paid as such.

Peterson is reportedly feeling disrespected in free agency. Jason Cole affirmed that he still wants to be paid like a superstar.

Here’s a news flash. Adrian Peterson is a soon-to-be 32-year-old running back coming off of a second major knee injury. The chances of his actually earning any sort of superstar-like contract are slim. The chances of him getting that type of contract appear to be nil.

Certainly, the Packers have zero interest in such a scenario.

This is the end of the line, buddy. You better get your ego in check and face reality. The demand for your services is low, if it exists at all. That demand is only going to decrease after teams with a running back hole address that need in the draft.

Do you want to compete for a title or do you want to call it a career?

    Has all the makings of a perfect relationship w the Patsys….
    He’ll reluctantly sign a one-year low salary deal, Belicheat and his squad will leverage his resulting anger as he amasses large chunkd of yards to complete one of his best seasons ever and get his one and only SB ring…. Randy Moss redux…..

    I think he ends up with the Patriots also.

    After some thought, Peterson and the Packers aren’t a good fit for various reasons, at any cost. At some point, we have to improve the problems we already have, and they aren’t on offense.

    It’s seemed fairly obvious he’d want substantial money. Each day that goes by, his leverage decreases and his value drops. My guess is he gets signed for 5-6 million. He probably wants in the 10+ mill area.

      GB oline not built for his style of play….

    His realistic value to the packers is $0, his perceived self valuation is $18mil a year. This has never been a plausible scenario.

      That ^^^

    Is he a moron? When is I going to look at this realistically? He is worth 2 years, 8 million tops. And I would be uneasy with that

      I will say this….if Lacy is worth 5.5 million…Peterson is worth at least that much. Plus, you don’t have to bribe him to try and stop eating Chinese…oops, my bad, i meant to say eating China food all the time.

        Cant wait to see Carrol bring Feastmode down to 240 only to see him go on DL w ankle injury…. hopefully before Cheathawks play GB

    Not a Pats fan, but I doubt coach Belichick would bring on a child abuser.

      Wouldn’t bet against it…

      He’s master of rehab….
      See Moss, Blount

    Fuck that guy, I never want to see him in green and gold.

      Agree, he needs to go away like Ray Rice.
