Today, on a very special episode of As the Running Back Turns, we learn more about the football playing future of Adrian Peterson.
According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has indicated if Peterson isn’t back in Minnesota, it won’t be because the team releases him.
#Vikings GM Rick Spielman told Adrian Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, tonight the team won't release him. No surprise but that's off the table.

This comes on the heels of reports of numerous meetings between the Vikings and Peterson’s camp amid rumors that the former MVP wants out of Minnesota.
The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly the first choice for Peterson, and the team has not denied interest in acquiring him through a trade.
