In an expected move, the Minnesota Vikings have declined Adrian Peterson’s 2017 contract option. The team announced the move in a statement.

Peterson was due to make $18 million in 2017, which included a $6M roster bonus if he was on the Vikings’ roster on the third day of the new league year. Peterson will officially become a free agent on March 9, the first day of the new league year.

GM Rick Spielman didn’t rule out Peterson returning to the Vikings in 2017 at a reduced price.
