We figured this to be the case when the Minnesota Vikings signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray on Thursday.
The Vikings have now made it official. Adrian Peterson — that child abusing dick — is no longer the Purple Jesus.
#Vikings GM Rick Spielman says on a conference call that Adrian Peterson “will be moving on.” Difficult & emotional 24 hrs for all involved

And look, as much as I dislike Adrian Peterson and have made the case why the Green Bay Packers shouldn’t sign him… at this point the cupboard is so bare for the Packers at running back, what the hell!?
If you weren’t going to sign Eddie Lacy and then call him fat on his way out the door when he actually isn’t, you might as well go and do something other than hope Christian McCaffrey comes your way in the draft.
Because you need cornerbacks anyway, dipshits! And since you won’t go trade for one, I now fully expect you to draft one in every damn round of the 2017 draft!
Besides, I bet at this point, Adrian Peterson and his wounded pride would love to have a run at a title with a real quarterback. He’d probably even come cheap for that opportunity.
Report that the packers have agreed to terms on a one year deal with Blount. Not a great source, but worth monitoring
Where did you see that report kato? lombardiave.com?
Wasn’t Lombardi ave, I saw it on facebook. Starting to doubt the veracity. Besides, it is TT.
The title is just clickbait. Maybe this is where it came from.
As far as Peterson, i would have thought the Vikings would resign the child beater if the # was reasonable. This is why i tend to think maybe Peterson is pricing himself out of the market.
I always thought the Patriots would pick him up.
Now, i’m thinking that the Packers and the Patriots are laying in the weeds until Peterson gets desperate and drops his price. I see someone signing him for 1 year at 6-7 mill.
