Peterson has come under fire after saying he wanted a long-term commitment from the team after missing most of last season while addressing a child abuse charge. He has three years and $46 million left on his deal, but none of that is guaranteed.
Analysis: Peterson says he knows "hundreds of players" that wished the team would have honored their contracts as he is being asked to do. Coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday that Peterson has two choices: he can either play for the Vikings next season or not play at all.

Analysis: The star running back has missed the first two days of optional team practices and is not expected to attend any of the optional workouts this summer. He has been upset with the team for a perceived lack of support while he faced a child abuse charge last season and his representatives have said he should play elsewhere next season.
|May 24 7:10 PM PT8:10 PM MT9:10 PM CT10:10 PM ET2:10 GMT10:10 AM 北京时间7:10 PM MST9:10 PM EST9:10 PM CT6:10 UAE (+1)22:10 ET1:10 - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Peterson has informed Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer that he will not be attending the team's optional practices that start on Tuesday. Peterson is not required to attend any team functions until a mandatory minicamp next month.
Analysis: Peterson has been unhappy with the Vikings for a perceived lack of support from within the organization while he addressed child abuse charges last season. The person spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the issue. The Vikings have said they have no plans to trade Peterson, who could lose out on a $250,000 workout bonus by skipping the practices this week.
|Apr. 20 4:02 PM PT5:02 PM MT6:02 PM CT7:02 PM ET23:02 GMT7:02 AM 北京时间4:02 PM MST6:02 PM EST6:02 PM CT3:02 UAE (+1)19:02 ET22:02 - A person with knowledge Peterson's offseason workouts tells The Associated Press that star running back has decided not to attend Minnesota's spring strength and conditioning program. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation on Monday, the first day Vikings players gathered at team headquarters for supervised workouts.
Analysis: Peterson's absence was expected, of course, given his expressed disinterest in returning to the organization. Even in a normal year, Peterson's presence during the offseason has been rare. He spent some time in Minnesota last year to get acclimated to coach Mike Zimmer's staff, but Peterson's preference has been to prepare with his personal trainer at home in the Houston area.
|Apr. 16 11:17 AM PT12:17 PM MT1:17 PM CT2:17 PM ET18:17 GMT2:17 AM 北京时间11:17 AM MST1:17 PM EST1:17 PM CT22:17 UAE14:17 ET17:17 - The NFL has reinstated Peterson, clearing the way for him to return after missing most of last season while facing child abuse charges in Texas.
Analysis: The league announced its decision on Thursday. Commissioner Roger Goodell sent Peterson a letter advising him of his reinstatement. Goodell wrote that Peterson will have to fulfill all the obligations of his plea deal with authorities after he reached a plea deal to reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor.
|Mar. 20 1:09 PM PT2:09 PM MT3:09 PM CT4:09 PM ET20:09 GMT4:09 AM 北京时间1:09 PM MST3:09 PM EST2:09 PM CT0:09 UAE (+1)16:09 ET19:09 - Peterson will meet with the NFL on Tuesday to discuss his playing status.
Analysis: Peterson was suspended under the NFL's personal conduct policy through at least April 15 due to a child abuse case involving his young son, a decision he appealed. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said he planned to meet with Peterson before that date to determine his status.
|Mar. 10 11:29 AM PT12:29 PM MT1:29 PM CT2:29 PM ET18:29 GMT2:29 AM 北京时间11:29 AM MST1:29 PM EST12:29 PM CT22:29 UAE14:29 ET17:29 - Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings are still working on their relationship.
Analysis: Two people with knowledge of the visit, speaking Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, confirmed that Peterson met with Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman in the New York area. This was a sequel of sorts to a trip that Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer took last week to Peterson's home outside of Houston.
|Mar. 4 1:59 PM PT2:59 PM MT3:59 PM CT4:59 PM ET21:59 GMT5:59 AM 北京时间2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST3:59 PM CT1:59 UAE (+1)16:59 ET20:59 - The Minnesota Vikings have made their in-person pitch to Adrian Peterson.
Analysis: General manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer spent about four hours Wednesday afternoon at Peterson's home north of Houston. Photographers captured Spielman and Zimmer leaving together, dressed in sport coats and blue jeans. This was the first time meeting they've had with Peterson since the star running back was placed on the exempt list in mid-September following his indictment in a child abuse case involving his 4-year-old son.
|Feb. 18 9:58 AM PT10:58 AM MT11:58 AM CT12:58 PM ET17:58 GMT1:58 AM 北京时间10:58 AM MST12:58 PM EST11:58 AM CT21:58 UAE12:58 ET15:58 - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says he expects Peterson to stay with the team this season.
Analysis: Several high-ranking Vikings officials have expressed their desire to bring Peterson back in recent weeks, and Spielman's comments to reporters at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis were the strongest yet. Spielman, however, declined to comment about whether or not the Vikings would ask Peterson to restructure his contract. His deal calls for a salary cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015.
|Feb. 6 3:20 PM PT4:20 PM MT5:20 PM CT6:20 PM ET23:20 GMT7:20 AM 北京时间4:20 PM MST6:20 PM EST5:20 PM CT3:20 UAE (+1)18:20 ET21:20 - The latest dispute between the NFL Players Association and the NFL over the league's personal conduct policy was aired Friday in federal court, as Adrian Peterson listened to arguments about his suspension that the union is trying to have overturned.
Analysis: It was more criticism of the disciplinary process that Peterson and the union have derided as arbitrary and unfair since punishment was levied by the NFL after the running back was charged in a child abuse case involving his son. He resolved the case with a plea bargain last year. Peterson and the union would prefer a ruling before March 10, when the league's free agency and trading period starts.
|Feb. 5 12:41 PM PT1:41 PM MT2:41 PM CT3:41 PM ET20:41 GMT4:41 AM 北京时间1:41 PM MST3:41 PM EST2:41 PM CT0:41 UAE (+1)15:41 ET18:41 - Peterson remains in NFL limbo and his union's latest attempt to restore his playing status will take place in federal court.
Analysis: Attorneys for the NFL Players Association are scheduled to argue Friday for the Minnesota Vikings running back's reinstatement from a suspension levied by the league under its personal conduct policy.
