Minnesota Vikings sign Syracuse native Latavius Murray

17 March 2017, 01:24 | Simon Arnold

Adrian Peterson a while back provided not-so-subtle hints that if he couldn't finish his career with the Vikings, he wouldn't mind doing so with the Giants. Murray has worn the number 28 for the vast majority of his football career; however, we already know that won't be what he wears with the Vikings.

If Murray doesn't live up to expectations, Minnesota can cut him without much penalty as long as he is cut before the 2018 season, Minnesota is only on the hook for $3.4 million, not the full $8.5 million. Robinson spoke to sources who speculated Peterson may have to settle for a relatively cheap one-year deal so he can show himself worthy of a more lucrative contract down the road.

Latavius Murray's addition gives the Vikings a big time weapon.

The Vikings signed free-agent running back Latavius Murray early Thursday morning, likely ending Adrian Peterson's tenure with the team. "I have too much respect for [Peterson] and so much respect for what he's done and what he means to this organization". Some 10 years later, picking up blitzes and catching passes are more critical than ever for running backs.

Murray is confident that he can bolster the Vikings offense. "Obviously it being my first time, I didn't really know what to expect but just glad I get the chance to play the game again with a great team with great history here in Minnesota". "When AP came onto the scene and Fred retired, he was my reason for keeping No. 28", Murray wrote.

"I'm not here to replace [Peterson], he's irreplaceable", he said. Peterson has also expressed interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders due to their solid offensive line. He led the league in rushing yards three times (2008, 2012, 2015) and rushing touchdowns twice (2009, 2015) and rushed for 1,000 yards in all but one of his seasons in which he played in double-digit games.
