Adrian Peterson RB MIN 3 Days

Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, said Monday that his client doesn't want to play for the Vikings. "I don't think it's in Adrian's best interest to play in Minnesota. Why would it be?" Ben Dogra told ESPN

The Peterson drama takes another turn, but the overall dynamics haven't changed. Peterson is reluctant to return the Vikings after he perceived that some in the organization were not supporting him whe the team worked with the NFL to put him on the commissioner's exempt list last September. However, the Vikings maintain they want him to play for the team in 2015 and will not release him. Peterson could be trying to force a trade or obtain a contract extension. Peterson is under contract for $13 million in 2015 and doesn't have any guaranteed money beyond 2015. The Vikings may be playing coy in order to trade Peterson before the NFL Draft, so the drama will continue into April. Peterson remains on the restricted list from his suspension in November after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault for disciplining his child with a switch. His suspension was overturned by a Federal judge in February who asked the NFL to re-work his suspension to follow previous protocol for personal conduct punishment, but the NFL hasn't issued a new ruling. Peterson is eligible for reinstatement from his suspension on April 15, but that deadline isn't an obstacle for the Vikings to make any transaction for him in the offseason.

J. J. Watt DL HOU 3 Days1 Comment

Watt has agreed to a restructured contract, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Most of Watt's 2015 base salary will convert into a signing bonus, creating cap space for the Texans this season at the expense of cap space over the following few seasons. Watt should be in for another huge season, and he's a perpetual favorite for Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Deveron Carr DB IND 4 Days

Carr signed with the Colts on Monday, Jenna Laine of FOX Sports reports.

Carr earned a spot on the roster after impressing the Colts during the inaugural Veteran's Combine. However, Carr is slated for an ancillary role during the 2015-16 season and is better left untouched as a result.

Nathan Slaughter WR ARI 4 Days2 Comments

Slaughter has signed a two-year deal with the Cardinals, ESPN.com reports.

Slaughter caught the eye of the Cardinals at the recent NFL Veterans Combine by reportedly turning in sub-4.4 times in the 40-yard dash. The 5-9, 184-pounder will now look to crack the team's roster as a depth wideout/returner, but he's a few breaks away from fantasy consideration.

Robert Mathis LB IND 4 Days

Mathis may not be ready to "re-emerge" from a torn Achilles injury until November, Colts owner Jim Irsay told the team's official web site.

Mathis missed all of last season due to a torn Achilles. Mathis had said he hoped to be ready for spring practices, but this statement sounds like he won't be ready until later this year. At age 34 and coming off a major injury, it's possible his career could be over due to the ailment.

Greg Jennings WR MIN 5 Days

Jennings (elbow) visited the Panthers on Saturday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Though Jennings -- who was released by the Vikings earlier this month -- wasn't immediately signed by the Panthers, if he ends up doing so, he'd be a solid addition to a Carolina receiving corps that could use some added depth beyond the likes of Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery.

Alan Ball DB CHI 5 Days

Ball has yet to finalize a deal with the Panthers, ESPN.com reports.

Previous reports suggested that Ball had agreed to a one-year deal with Carolina, but such a deal has yet to be closed, with the report suggesting that at least one other team could be interested in pursuing the cornerback, who recorded 22 tackles and a pick in seven starts for the Jaguars in 2014.

James Harrison LB PIT 5 Days

Harrison signed a two-year contract with the Steelers on Sunday.

Harrison initially said he wanted to play one more season, but his two-year contract could be indicative that he will play more than that. Between the Bengals and Steelers last season, the 12-year vet recorded 45 tackles (29 solo) and 5.5 sacks. He'll likely slot in opposite Jarvis Jones heading into the 2015 season.

Brandon Pettigrew TE DET 6 Days

Lions GM Martin Mayhew feels Pettigrew can play a bigger role in the passing game in 2015, detroitlions.com reports.

Pettigrew caught just 10 passes for 70 yards in 14 games last season. Both totals are the lowest of his career as he was asked to be more of a blocker in 2014. Mayhew says that the team is figuring out ways to utilize the tight end position as a whole, so while Pettigrew won't all of sudden return to his days of catching 70 to 80 passes he could see a slight uptick in production in 2015.

Adrian Peterson RB MIN 6 Days

Peterson's return to the Vikings for 2015 remains murky as while Peterson's agent told media outlets the Vikings have said they won't release his client, Peterson's agent also declined an invitation to meet with GM Rick Spielman, Yahoo! Sports reports.

The Vikings have maintained they want Peterson to play for the Vikings in 2015, but Peterson has said he's hesitant to return to the team. Peterson could be trying to force a trade or obtain a contract extension (the Yahoo! Sports report says he's seeking a three-year deal guaranteeing $25 million). The Yahoo! Sports report also says the Cardinals would be willing to trade a second-round pick for Peterson. Despite all the drama, the Vikings hold all the cards as Peterson is under contract for $13 million in 2015 and doesn't have any guaranteed money beyond 2015. The Vikings may be playing coy in order to trade Peterson before the NFL Draft, so the drama will continue into April. Peterson remains on the restricted list from his suspension in November after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault for disciplining his child with a switch. His suspension was overturned by a Federal judge in February who asked the NFL to re-work his suspension to follow previous protocol for personal conduct punishment, but the NFL hasn't issued a new ruling. Peterson is eligible for reinstatement from his suspension on April 15, but that deadline isn't an obstacle for the Vikings to make any transaction for him in the offseason.
