The future of Adrian Peterson is still up in the air. Will he return to the Minnesota Vikings or will a trade take place? Those are the questions that everyone is asking.

After Peterson and the Vikings met earlier this week in New York, the questions remain unanswered but there was some speculation that the star running back may have requested a trade from the team.
According to Peterson’s father, the running back has not yet requested a trade and the two sides will meet again to continue hashing things out and exploring all options.
“They will meet again,” Nelson Peterson told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
“I’m not going to say who’s going to be at the meeting. I can’t comment on that. Just stuff coming up from the Vikings and that’s about it, so nothing was resolved. “Everything remains the same. He still has options with returning, so the door hasn’t been closed.”
The previous meeting included owners Zygi and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman. A meeting earlier at Peterson’s home included Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer.
While Peterson has yet to ask for a trade, that could all change soon as he continues to look at how the market is developing.
