The Minnesota Vikings have reached agreement on a new contract with Adrian Peterson that could keep the running back in Minnesota for the rest of his career.

Peterson is signing a seven-year, $100 million deal with $36 million guaranteed, a league source tells PFT.

The contract means there’s a good chance that the 26-year-old Peterson will retire a Viking.

Peterson’s deal is the biggest to date for a running back, topping both the five-year, $43 million deal with $21 million guaranteed for DeAngelo Williams and the four-year, $53.5 million contract with $30 million guaranteed for Chris Johnson.

Good luck with that Minnesota.


Signing a RB to long term big money while they are going into their 30's is fucking stupid.

He's 26.

They've done a good job of keeping his carries down so....this might be an OK deal.

I completely agree with this, but he's 26, and will probably be completely washed up by 30, and they'll cut him.

FTR, I'm not a big advocate of giving huge money to RBs, but AP is a special talent, and they pretty much had to make him the highest paid back in the league.

If they get another 3-4 years and then get rid of him they did fine. All that they would lose is the guaranteed money.

The guaranteed money is about the same as Chris Johnson. Johnson is 3 years younger. I'm guessing AP will only see the guaranteed money.

It appears that nine-figure contracts are going to be the norm for elite players under the new CBA.

A true migraine is not just "a ****ing headache". You hear tons of people complain they have a migraine, and I'd bet 85 percent of them have a bad headache and have never actually had a migraine. True migraines are incapacitating, even with meds.

The worst one I ever had (technically, I didn't have migraines, I had cluster headaches (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_headache)), my doc sent me in for a CT scan and a MRI to make sure I didn't have a brain tumor. I went blind in the eye, the pressure behind my eye burst most of the blood vessels (so there literally was no "white" to my eye), and at one point the doc had me spraying Lidocaine up my nostrils with a syringe onto my sinuses just for pain management.

Crazy how they could pay both jared allen AND their RB, but we couldn't.

Not a terrible decision to re-up their young stud since he's only 26, but he would be a freak of nature to see the end of that deal.

I don't think it was ever that we couldn't, more along the "not worth the risk" side of things with Allen.

Not to mention how they broke the bank with Favre. Funny how most teams will do everyhthing possible to aquire and retain Pro Bowlers no matter the cost while our owners make saving money the priority when in the same situation.

I wouldn't either but im not in that situation. Sometimes teams are forced to overspend on superstar players. That's what the fans pay to see and u don't want to come off cheap. Tough decision no doubt.

We just made Tamba the 2nd Highest paid pass rusher in the league, and have re-signed every player that has earned a contract since Pioli has been here. Do not use Carl Peterson's ass hole tactics as a barometer of how we pay our players. We also landed Jamaal Charles, and Brandon Albert in the JA trade, so even that example is pointless.
Not to mention the fact that it has been proven that pay-roll, and winning do not, in any way, go hand in hand when it comes to winning.

Sorry if I'm critical of giving away Pro Bowlers, I definitely agree it's nice to see out new leaders taking responsiblity for paying and keeping talent the way Carl failed us so many times. I know they don't always go hand and hand, but it's been proven time and time again big pay rolls statistically increase the chances of winning, no?

And BTW, how many SBs have the Vikes won by paying (over-paying) huge amounts of money to their players.
It's also pretty unanimous that it was not a good idea to give this kind of money to a RB.

No absolutely NOT. Studies show that big pay rolls do NOT in any way increase the chance of winning. the average pay-roll of SB winners is 15th IIRC.

Hey, 15th out of 32 teams means the numbers are still slightly in my arguments favor ;). I can't believe it's that low in the NFL though, that's actually pretty amazing. Still, when it comes to all sports, I have to imagine it rings true over a wide range, especially factoring in NBA and, worse, MLB.

What kind of money? Making standard high-end dollars these days with bullshit inflated overall numbers that are about 80% sure to never happen. NFL contract numbers are complete bullshit in this way.

I think it's ridiculous what these ****ing guys are getting paid, let alone a running back. The Vikings are retarded. No matter how good you are at football there is no reason any one of these players should be making more than 10 million a year. Paying players this kind of money is what made baseball a joke for me.
