Vikings GM confirms team won't re-sign Adrian Peterson

Posted March 17, 2017

Latavius Murray may be taking over the Vikings' starting running back job, but he knows it will be impossible to fill Adrian Peterson's shoes.

As such, Murray's deal can be seen as a one-year contract where the Vikings can void the remaining $5.15 million if they cut the RB prior to the 2018 season.

The Vikings agreed to a contract on Thursday with former Raiders running back Latavius Murray, signaling the end of the Peterson era in Minnesota.

He was linked to the Titans and Eagles in early March trade rumors before he was finally dealt to the Patriots this past Friday. After being initially frustrated and angry with the New England Patriots, Malcolm Butler has seemed to calm down.

He previously visited with the Seattle Seahawks, but the team later signed running back Eddie Lacy. Murray was one piece of the Oakland Raiders potent, spread-the-ball-around offense the last three seasons.

Murray arrived in Minnesota on Tuesday, met with the team on Wednesday and ultimately secured a deal by the wee hours Thursday morning. After waiting 10 seasons for freedom, Peterson expected to be wined and dined like an all-time great.

"I just know that some unfortunate injuries happened a year ago", Murray said during a conference call with Twin Cities media members Thursday.

Redshirt freshman Dazon Ingram led Alabama with 17 points before fouling out of the contest in the final two minutes. It committed 15 turnovers, Isaiah Briscoe struggled offensively and the team shot 6-for-16 from 3-point range.

Although Adrian Peterson is still a free agent, he will likely find a new home with another team in the NFL. Murray then went on to provide some background on why he's worn 28 for so long.

Murray rushed for 1,066 yards in 2015 and made the Pro Bowl before falling off to 788 yards last season.

"Many people don't know, but I wore the No. 28 as a kid because of Fred Taylor who played for the Jaguars at the time". I want to say to Vikings fans: I'm not here to replace #28, he's irreplaceable.
