Report: Adrian Peterson could return to Cardinals after release

Adrian Peterson

The Arizona Cardinals are expected to release Adrian Peterson this week, but the veteran running back could apparently end up returning to the team.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cardinals will release Peterson in order to avoid having to pay him the $750,000 bonus he is due on the third day of the league year. However, A.P. may sign a new deal with Arizona after that.

Peterson will turn 33 this month. He has said that he wants to play several more seasons, but the recent comments Cardinals GM Steve Keim made about him make it seem like Peterson will have to play elsewhere in 2018.

While he got off to a blazing start after being traded to the Cardinals from New Orleans, Peterson ended up averaging just 3.4 yards per carry in 2017. His season ended prematurely with a neck injury, though he was able to avoid surgery.
