Cardinals to release RB Peterson


The Adrian Peterson era in Arizona has reached its conclusion.

The Cardinals are releasing Peterson on Monday, but they might consider re-signing him on a smaller contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

If he's still on the roster by Friday, he will be due a bonus of $750,000.

Peterson suffered a season-ending neck injury on November 26.

Peterson signed on with the New Orleans Saints previous year but was traded to the Arizona Cardinals early in the season.

Joel Embiid scored 21 points, Robert Covington added 19, and the 76ers went on to rout the Brooklyn Nets 120-97 on Sunday night. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 and Luke Kornet had 18 as the Knicks dropped their seventh straight game and 15th in the last 16.

If Peterson returns to the Cardinals, presumably under a less lucrative terms than under his current deal, he'll likely serve as Johnson's backup.

Peterson, 32, played six games with the Cardinals in 2017 before he was placed on the injured reserve with a neck injury in Week 12.

Peterson rushed for more than 1,200 yards in seven of his 10 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, including a career-best 2,097 in his MVP campaign in 2012.

Peterson has 99 rushing touchdowns, tied with Barry Sanders for ninth all time.
