Adrian Peterson: Wouldn't Mind Playing for the Cowboys

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson isn't ruling out a trade, despite the organization's desire to keep him.

Peterson told WFAA in Dallas that he wouldn't mind playing for the Cowboys next year.

"It would be nice," Peterson said at Tuesday night's Rockets-Mavericks game.  "I've got family here, my dad's here. But I'm under contract, so we'll see."

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman repeated his initial statement when asked about Peterson's future in Minnesota.

"We can just end the Adrian Peterson stuff," Spielman told reporters at the team's pre-draft news conference on Tuesday. "Our position has not changed. We have no interest in trading Adrian Peterson."

Peterson has three years and $45 million left on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed.
