The Minnesota Vikings might be looking for a new back up running back for Adrian Peterson. Vikings fullback Jerome Felton isn’t counting on Toby Gerhart returning.

“Probably pretty low,” Felton said, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “Just having played behind Adrian (Peterson), I assume he wants to go somewhere where he can get more touches.

“I’ve texted Toby a little bit. I think there’s going to be a lot of interest in him. I just told him good luck and don’t forget about us when he’s signed his big contract. … I hope he gets in a situation where he has a chance to shine.”
