The Dallas Cowboys have been at the forefront of the Adrian Peterson trade talks — expect they completely and totally haven’t.
The NFL Draft is just days away and there has been no movement on Adrian Peterson trade talks that will need to be nearly wrapped up before then. That’s not the case though and it’s looking more and more like Peterson will not be traded.
Not the Dallas Cowboys, at least.
According to Charles Robinson from Yahoo! Sports, the Dallas Cowboys are not — and never have been — involved in trade talks for Adrian Peterson.
"As it stands, Dallas has not even spoken with Minnesota regarding Peterson. Let that sink in: As of the start of draft week, the Cowboys have not spoken to Minnesota about Adrian Peterson, let alone made any trade offers. Anything stating the contrary is mythology."
That’s huge, and it seems to make sense with what is currently going on in the grander scheme of the NFL landscape. The Cowboys haven’t even engaged with or reached out to the Vikings and it’s beyond the 11th hour to do so.
Of course, there’s something that could be done in the next four days that brings about a trade, but the Cowboys have been the favorites to land Peterson and they’re nowhere near trade talks at this time.
What this means is there’s more than a certain chance that the Vikings will have Adrian Peterson on their roster in 2015 and he will be playing out the final years of his deal with them. That doesn’t mean he’ll be back in 2016 or that he’ll have a particular amount of fun in 2015, but it’s starting to look beyond a shadow of a doubt that Adrian Peterson will be wearing Vikings colors in 2015 and no others.
