They just want to be treated normal. Just like anyone else. They don't want to stand out. I can understand it and they do appreciate a person that knows who they are but treats them as just another guy. Now for you dancing with Eddie...................I could only imagine...........
He stole the show at the combine. The kid tore that bastard up. Amari Cooper is looking good at 11.
Have to say, love the timing of all the AD crap going on lol........The Vikings go all out saying they want AD back and then AD leaks he want s to be traded and prefers the Cowboys and WOW...this all happens just prior to combine where all the owners, GM's get together and chat about everything. It's like the Vikings and Peterson had the whole thing scripted......Peterson wanting to move on and the Vikings saying it's gonna cost you if you want him. AD's agent and people around AD can leak things out and this is a nice way of not violating the current situation but I guarantee you the Vikings brass now know exactly who is interested and how seriously that interest is. We won't hear any of this stuff but the ground work for compensation is already being set and negotiated well in advance of AD's reinstatement. It'll be easier if AD is reinstated sooner but realistically most of this can be negotiated behind the scenes with a lot of what ifs form all sides. Can't wait to see the outcome.
Losing respect by the second. If it's true, it screams like a ploy to get what you want. Like a toddler throwing a tantrum. Funny irony of the whole situation. This is just a joke.
This whole fiasco is maddening. The Vikings are laying the ground work to make AP look like the bad guy here fellas. Everyone is saying what needs to be said via the front office. Here's where I'll ask you to think about this for a second. It's no secret the Vikings are wanting AP to take a reduction in salary, right? The front office says they want AP back. Well then why try to force the former face of the franchise to take a pay cut if you truly want him back? The Vikings have the luxury of NOT have to pay a franchise QB at this time. The CBA says the team has to pay a certain percentage of the cap regardless of the teams situation. Pay Him!...
This decision has very little to do with money. The Vikings would take him back and pay him his full salary. Like you said, they're not paying Bridgewater much. The combination of Favre and Peterson was similar to these two in salary for the backfield. Not to mention, this organization, ownership, and front office has never been afraid to pay their guys. Favre made more each season than Peterson will. Jared Allen made more his final season, maybe the second to last too, than Peterson is scheduled to make. Paying Allen in his final year made sense because the Vikings were coming off a playoff appearance. The Vikings aren't afraid or unwilling to pay Peterson his full salary next season. And if the Vikings are laying the groundwork for AD to be the bad guy, he is the one supplying them with all the tools and materials needed for the job.
but Kevin Warren the man responsible for doling out the Vikings side of it doesn't have your back in this. He quietly sides with the wishes of the NFL, even though what the NFL is doing here is trying to set precedent moving forward with part of the CBA that the players NEVER bargained for. The owners arbitrarily put in a new rule without regard to the players.
This I can see his point. What you are saying that the Vikings could have asked the league what the hell is taking so long why are you making it up as you go. Instead they let the process go unattested.
