Vikings Rule Out Re-Signing Adrian Peterson


General Manager Rick Spielman made it clear Thursday that, with the signing of Murray to be the featured back in the Vikings offense, the organization would be moving forward without Peterson.

Spielman also added the following. For many, the signing of Murray points to the end of Peterson's somewhat turbulent tenure in Minnesota, which means Murray could technically continue to rock No. 28 if he so pleased.

Though not a literal trade, Peterson in Oakland and Latavius Murray in Minnesota would in effect be exactly that.

Murray, who said he grew up watching and admiring Peterson, announced during his conference call that he will instead wear No. 25 for the Vikings.

Peterson's time with the Vikings was also not without controversy.

Now that Peterson will actually get to pick his second National Football League team as an unrestricted free agent, don't expect him to end up there.

Murray rushed for 1,066 yards in 2015 and made the Pro Bowl before falling off to 788 yards last season. "I'm just here to fish".

"There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28", Murray wrote. I'm not here to be No. 28; there's no one like him.

A chain reaction of running back moves likely started Tuesday after Green Bay free agent Eddie Lacy reached agreement on a one-year, $5.55 million deal with Seattle, with $3 million guaranteed.

Murray, 27, was originally selected by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 draft and was a starter for the team the last two seasons. Of course, the possibility of the Vikings bringing back AD on a reduced contract existed, but that essentially flew out the window when the team signed Latavius Murray.

"I'm not here to replace [Peterson], he's irreplaceable", he said.
