i thought this particular question might be good to be examined in its own thread, if the mods disagree then lock it up.

Spielman: “Friday night was the first we heard of the formal allegations against Adrian Peterson, and we decided, as an organization, that to deactivate him this weekend was in the best interests of everybody concerned. We are, as an organization, still in the process of gathering information, and at the end of the weekend we will discuss what we will do going forward. You don’t want to make any kneejerk reactions. All options are on the table. You can’t take any options off the table because we’re still gathering information.”

will the Vikings trade AP?
what's he worth, if so?
who would be interested?

Already in the big-money years of a contract that devotes way too much cash to a devalued position, the charges against Peterson could sufficiently diminish his standing in the eyes of the fan base to allow the Vikings to free themselves of salaries of $12.75 million in 2015, $14.75 million in 2016, and $15.75 million in 2017. (Moving on from Peterson after the coming season would result in a paltry cap charge of $2.4 million.)

I honestly don't believe the team trades him, as I don't think they would like the message that could send.

He either stays, or is outright released.

between his age, contract and legal issues I really don't think any team would trade for him.

I think he will probably be suspended/deactivated for the year, go through some counseling and be back next year.

If the Vikings stood by Preifer and let him keep his job, I think they will do the same with their franchise player.

That type of suspension would have to come from the league, and they've already said that they are going to let the legal proceedings play out.

The Vikings, under the personal conduct policy, can only deactivate/suspend him for four games. Today being the first.

I also don't necessarily agree that the Priefer situation is comparable. Moral vs. criminal charges.

I agree. These are the most logical options at this point.

But, for the sake of the thread, lets say we trade him to a RB desperate team (or any team that feels like they are one piece away). Right now those teams are: Baltimore, Indianapolis, Dallas, Tampa Bay, Carolina and Atlanta. (anybody disagree here?)

So there's some competition. At this point in his career, considering wear&tear, age, Off the field issues, etc. I'd still imagine we can get a 2nd and 4th round pick for him.

Its not fantastic compensation, but still enough for us to grab one of these RBs in 15' (which looks like a strong class this year) and some ammo to move up in the draft if we so choose so.

Im thinking a trade could be possible. Jerry Jones is still running a franchise and he has spoken directly in regards to adding Peterson.

I think he is traded (even if for peanuts) before he is released.

the problem is that there are very few teams (Cowboys aren't one of them) that can take on AP's contract.

They are only six teams that can, as his contract currently stands, trade for Peterson.

Jacksonville - Gerhart, Todman, Johnson
Jets - Johnson and Ivory
Browns - Tate (just gave him good money), West, Crowell
Eagles - McCoy and Sproles
Titans - Greene and Sankey
Bengals - Bernard and Hill

Teams will make it work, especially Dallas, who has a history of making moves when no one thinks they can afford it.

^ None of those teams are contenders; it wouldn't make sense for any of them to acquire Peterson.

i'm seeing it that way too.

i think the Vikings will decide to move on from him because
** too many social groups will decry him being on the team
** public funding for that stadium, ya know...
** Peterson is yet to actually apologize or admit a failure in character or behavior on the incident (which now his lawyers may advise against any way)
** Vikings don't like bad press

Trading Peterson in lieu of releasing him, in the current NFL climate, would generate bad press.

Not to mention, the team trading for him would also receive a good deal of bad press.

Why cant a "non-contender" trade for a star player? Do you think any head coach in the league accepts being a "non-contender".
