Adrian Peterson Wants To Discuss New Vikings Deal?

New, 3 comments

Mike Florio of writes that Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson, who is under contract for two more seasons, is already thinking about his next payday.

Appearing Wednesday with our main man Paul Allen of KFAN in Minneapolis, Peterson admitted that he wants "to at least talk about" a new contract.

But he made it clear that he relies on his agents to handle those discussions.  Besides, Peterson won't go hungry.  He'll get $3.64 million in 2010, and at least $10.72 million in 2011.

It's hard to fault a player for asking for more money when his play is priceless but Vikings fans have got to be thinking that this isn't the time.

For everything Vikings, head over to SB Nation's Daily Norseman.
