Peterson not expected to participate in Vikings' voluntary OTAs this week

Star Tribune Sports - Sun, 05/24/2015 - 19:46
Running back Adrian Peterson will not be in attendance Tuesday at Winter Park when the Vikings begin their first week of voluntary organized team activities. He instead will remain in Texas, according to multiple reports. Peterson is not required to attend the voluntary workouts, but the $250,000 workout bonus in his contract is tied to participation in spring workouts. The first time that Peterson — and the rest of his Vikings teammates — are required to show up at Winter Park is next month’s mandatory minicamp. If he opts to skip those workouts, the Vikings can choose to fine him. Peterson is under contract through 2017 and is scheduled to make $12.75 million in base salary this season, assuming he eventually rejoins the team. The 30-year-old running back has remained in contact with coach Mike Zimmer and the Vikings since he was reinstated by the NFL last month. This winter, he expressed displeasure with the organization for a lack of support when he was penalized by the NFL after he was charged with child abuse in Texas last September. He has not spoken publicly in months, so it is unclear if Peterson still harbors strong resentment towards the Vikings.
