Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson reportedly wants out of Minnesota and has stated his willingness to restructure his contract to help to that end. Could San Diego be a landing spot?
Right now this is just a rumor. Adrian Peterson won the first round having his suspension overturned in court. The NFL, as expected, has appealed that decision. He hasn’t specifically asked for a trade, but San Diego is one of the places that is named as a possible landing spot.
The Chargers need help at running back. Ryan Mathews’ contract is up and he’s a pending free agent. His injury history makes a new deal prohibitive. Peterson carries with him a very impressive resume, amassing over 10,000 rushing yards over eight years.
A trade for Adrian Peterson would be on a par with the trade between the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings when the Vikes mortgaged it all for Herschel Walker. How would a full season out of the game affect A.P? Would Tom Telesco be willing to give a king’s ransom for him in an era where running backs are not valued like they were in LT’s hay day?
What are your thoughts? Should the Chargers look into a trade for A.P.?
