The Minnesota Vikings have revealed that they no longer have star running back Adrian Peterson in their plans. Peterson has been suspended and placed on the NFL Commissioner’s Exempt List.

While he is not allowed to play, he is still getting paid. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said Peterson is not in the team’s plans to play this season.

The team, who initially were behind Peterson during his child abuse arrest, reversed course days later following public backlash. It seems like they are washing their hands of him all together.

He has a $12.75 million salary for next season. However, not a penny of this money is guaranteed.

He will be 30-years old, and was once the face of the league and of this team. Now, he is a disgrace to the team and the league, who is struggling in the face of the Ray Rice situation.

He played one game this season, where he had 21 rushes for 75 yards. He also had two receptions for 18 yards.

Peterson has been with the Vikings since the 2007 season. He was the team’s first round pick after playing his collegiate career at the Oklahoma Sooners.
