Analysis: The Vikings signed former Oakland running back Latavius Murray early Thursday after a long night of negotiations. Then Spielman acknowledged in the afternoon he had spoken with Peterson to wish him well, clarifying that the franchise's all-time leading rusher will be playing elsewhere in 2017. The Vikings declined their $18 million option on his contract for 2017 to make him a free agent.

Analysis: As expected, the Vikings declined to exercise their option for next season on Peterson's contract. Peterson was scheduled to make $18 million in 2017, what would have been an unwieldly hit to their salary cap. General manager Rick Spielman says the team will "continue to have conversations" with Peterson's representatives about the potential of re-signing the soon-to-be 32-year-old Peterson.
