Adrian Peterson Encourages Vikings to Sign Michael Vick

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is lobbying for the organization to sign Michael Vick once free agency begins next week.

The six-time Pro Bowler believes Vick is the missing piece to the Vikings playoff chances.

"@MikeVick would intently make the vikings a playoff team!" Peterson wrote in a Twitter message late Wednesday night.

Vick started six games for the Eagles last season and was beat out by Nick Foles for the starting job late in the season after a hamstring injury.

The Vikings hired Norv Turner during the offseason as their new offensive coordinator and Christian Ponder is the only quarterback under contract.

Vick has not started more than 13 games since 2006.  Free agency begins on Tuesday.
