Why Adrian Peterson, Vikings Need To Go In Separation Directions - Yahoo Sports

Adrian Peterson has only appeared in the Vikings

Peterson is due (with a workout bonus) $13 million next season. That's a high number at the running back spot. Trading him would create that amount in cap savings, and only $2.4 million in dead money (the last leg of his prorated bonus). With a potential salary cap bump of $15 million this offseason, Peterson's departure would help crank a mountain of money into free-agent acquisitions for a team that is continuing to build. It would also create the opportunity to facilitate the growth of rookie gym third-round pick Jerick McKinnon, who has been impressive in Peterson's absence this season. The timing of the salary-cap jump also creates a unique opportunity for suitors in the trade market. More teams would be able to absorb Peterson's contract without needing to rework the numbers. In theory, he could continue to earn at the top of the running back scale without taking a pay cut. Which is very much in the best interest of Peterson at this point, considering the stunted contracts that have been signed by running backs recently.
