Zimmer Says Peterson Can Play For Vikings Or Not At All
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says Adrian Peterson has two choices: He can either play for the Vikings or he cannot play at all.
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.
Zimmer said Wednesday that Peterson "is not going to play for anybody else and that's just the way it is."
Peterson is not required to show up until a mandatory minicamp on June 16.
