You don't think the Vikings want this hoopla around this situation to go away? You don't think the organization as whole is tired of it being about Adrian Peterson?
I don't think it is messy from their perspective.. their view was handled very succinctly by what was said the other day by the coach 'he can early play for us or he can not play'
pretty simple on their part
It's still hanging over their head, here were are heading into OTAs and the topic of discussion is still AP. Not how much Teddy has improved or how the addition of Mike Wallace is going to help the offense, everything is about AP.
What happens if AP still isn't happy with the situation after a few months, then what?
He'll be an unhappy employee, big deal. Plenty of those in the world.
All it takes is one preseason game, and everything is about football again. No more drama, or shoulda done this or that, just the Vikings on the field. Minnesota knows that. AP just needs to do his job and put his situation behind him. When his contract is up, he's free to play anywhere he wants.
Today, he is under contract, for the Minnesota Vikings.
Go to work AP. (And he is)
