    I would be shocked if they let him hit the open market. He is the only draw they have.

    Maybe they could trade him for a new stadium.

    Schneider also addressed his strong criticism of how the Vikings handled Jackson, which made news last week.

    Vikings signed him this morning to a 6 year, $72 million contract with $41 million guaranteed. Oh wait... never mind, that was the fantasy football league I'm in.

    Peterson has seen what Chris Johnson's contract is like and will command a slightly higher contract. He'll probably start seeking it out after week 11. By that time he'll know if my Vikings have a snowballs chance in Hell of reaching the playoffs.

    The Vikings should just quit and move to LA if they fail to keep Peterson, or at least fail to receive a large bounty from trading him.

    He'll come down to a top 5 rb of all time. Too bad it's in a time when running the ball isn't that important.

    It's a shame that such a huge talent will start and retire with the same team and never win or even play in a super bowl.

    No more trapped than Barry Sanders... considered one of the best NFL RB's in history (without a ring). Who knows, maybe the Vikings will pull a Packer and end up in the Super Bowl...

    This thread was started about AP. What does Barry Sanders have to do with it? "Pull a Packer and end up in the Super Bowl"?? (Is that smack talk?)
