Vikings Coach Wants Adrian Peterson Back in 2015

While former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson continues to await reinstatement from the NFL and ponder his football future, his coach with the Minnesota Vikings said he would welcome Peterson back.

In the first public comments from a Vikings official about the subject since Peterson was suspended on Nov. 18, Mike Zimmer said he "will be in [Peterson's] corner" if he returns to the Vikings in 2015.

"Adrian was always great with me. I think he's a good person. I think obviously he's a great running back, and if it works out that way and things work out and he gets his life in order -- that's the most important thing, he gets his life in order, he gets the opportunity to come back -- then I will be in his corner whatever the decision is made.

"I think he would add value to any team, to be honest with you. I think the kid's a heck of a football player." (ESPN.com)
