Report: Vikings Won't Cut Adrian Peterson, Might Trade Him

Former Oklahoma and All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson could be on the trading block if even uglier details emerge from his felony child abuse case in Houston, The Post has learned.

An NFL source familiar with the thinking of the Vikings’ ownership group said Sunday the only certainty is Peterson won’t be released because of his shocking indictment Friday afternoon.

But everything else — including the long-shot possibility of a trade — is still on the table after the Minnesota star was arrested and jailed over the weekend for allegedly injuring his 4-year-old son last May by brutally beating him with a thin tree limb while the child was naked.

If convicted, Peterson could be sentenced to as much as two years in jail and a $10,000 fine. (NY Post)
