Adrian Peterson era in Minnesota likely over

The uncertainty surrounding the Minnesota Vikings running back situation looks to have finally been resolved after yesterday’s signing of former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray.  In all likelihood this marks the end of the road for Adrian Peterson’s time in Minnesota after spending ten seasons wearing the purple and gold.
