So who was Vikings running back Adrian Peterson referring to when he said that someone with the organization didn’t support him?
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Peterson was referring to Vikings general counsel Kevin Warren. Schefter also reports that Warren and the NFL have been working together to ensure that Peterson doesn’t play this season.
That fits squarely with our (or at least my) strong belief that someone decided back in the middle of September that Peterson wouldn’t play again this year, and that every decision, breached agreement, and/or misapplied policy has been aimed at keeping Peterson from playing this year.
“I know there’s people in the organization that support me and there’s people that I know internally that has not been supporting me,” Peterson told USA Today recently, without naming names.
A request for comment has been sent by PFT to the Vikings, but they’re less than 40 minutes from kickoff against the Packers.
