Vikings GM Rick Spielman commented on the future of Adrian Peterson this morning, saying he expects the banished star to be a part of the team. Spielman spoke to a small group of reporters at the NFL scouting combine, "Adrian's been a key part of our organization... He's made a mistake. He's doing everything and he's got to follow through, rectify and do the things that the NFL's requiring him to do. Yeah, we expect Adrian Peterson to be a part of our football team."

Peterson, 29, will remain suspended until at least April 15 barring a successful challenge in federal court.
