Zimmer: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 'not going to play for anybody else'

Star Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer on the Adrian Peterson situation:

"Adrian, he’s really got two choices. He can either play for us or he can not play. He’s not going to play for anybody else. That’s just the way it’s going to be.“

Fantasy Impact: 

Zimmer threw a big bucket of cold water on any potential trade rumors involving Peterson. The Vikings hold all the cards, so the only thing Peterson can do is sit out for the season or report to camp and pout his way out of town. His contract makes him virtually untradeable, so if he truly wants to leave, he should agree to a new, less-expensive contract as part of a trade to a new team. That way everyone can move on.
