Is anyone really surprised that Pterson is not at OTAs? The 30-year-old running back feels disrespected by the way the Vikings didn’t support him during his entire child abuse case.
The problem for Peterson and his agent is that he has no leverage here, He is set to make $12.8 million in base salary this year. That’s over $5 million more than any other running back in the NFL. In a league that doesn’t value running backs much these days, that is a huge premium to pay Peterson.
