Vikings Coach Says Adrian Peterson Can Play for Us Or He Can't Play

Adrian Peterson has spent the last five months sending vague and sometimes ambiguous messages about his desire to remain with the Minnesota Vikings.
Coach Mike Zimmer cut right to the chase on Wednesday when asked about the situation surrounding his disgruntled running back.
“He’s really got two choices. He can either play for us or he cannot play,” Zimmer said on the second day of optional practices that Peterson skipped. “He’s not going to play for anybody else and that’s just the way it’s going to be.”
Peterson has skipped the optional portion of the Vikings’ offseason workouts many times in his career, but the circumstances surrounding his absence this time around are far different.
