Peterson, Vikings Still Have Work To Do After New Contract

After mudslinging from both sides, the Minnesota Vikings and running back Adrian Peterson have made nice. The Vikings and Peterson reportedly agreed to a restructured deal Tuesday that keeps Peterson in town for at least another three years.
This, about a year after Peterson was arrested in relation to child abuse charges. Peterson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges and wasn't required to serve any jail time. (Video via KRIV)
The base of the deal has Peterson earning less money — $44 million instead of $44.75 million over three years — but gives the running back more guaranteed money.
