A clear sign of the cheap front office at work.

Locked him up. A career Viking, as he should be.

Zygi Wilf and the front office did the right thing here. Pay the best running back in the league(and best non-QB in the league according to his peers[and me]) what he deserves.

Expect to hear bitching from CJ about AP's Contract being worth more.

He is absolutely the best running back in the league, and deserves to be paid accordingly.

That is a hell of a lot of dough for a RB. Glad to see him locked up though.

LOL @ Marrdro. They all knew what they were doing. Just because we can't see it doesn't mean it isn't happening. You crack me up my friend

He will retire a Viking. I was pretty damn happy when I saw this on NFL.com today. Like boner inducing happy.

Zygi Wilf was 'true to his word' about contract, Adrian Peterson says (http://www.1500espn.com/sportswire/Vikings_owner_Zygi_Wilf_was_true_to_his_word_Adrian_Peterson_says091011)
Adrian Peterson didn't know until Saturday morning his long-term contract extension with the Minnesota Vikings was complete. But a promise owner Zygi Wilf made to him and linebacker Chad Greenway last November always stuck in the back of Peterson's mind as talks progressed behind the scenes. "I ran into (Wilf) in the locker room," Peterson recalled on Saturday afternoon, hours after signing a seven-year deal that reportedly is worth up to $100 million. "We were kind of going back and forth and he said, `Adrian, I just want you to know -- and he told Chad the same thing because he was right there -- he said, `I want to make sure you guys are going to remain Vikings for your careers.' "He stayed true to that (Saturday). He stayed true to his word." Living in the Chicago area, and hearing about all the crap going on between the Bears and Forte (not to mention Lance Briggs), I can tell you, publicity like this can do wonders for the Vikes.

I wonder how the deal impacts the cap for this year and how it is going to shape what we can do in the next 5 with other players and still remain under the cap. It will be interesting to see.

I hope that one guy in Tennessee is throwing a temper tantrum right now lol.

After having to see Randy Moss leave the purple in his prime, this is the best news for us Viking faithful of the entire offseason

It's great news, but as we all know contracts don't mean shit in this day & age. 2 years from now he could hold out for a new deal or demand a trade.

Don't think it will happen, just saying contracts aren't a sure lock.

The other thing to consider is that it is back loaded and if his production drops off in the next 3-4 years we may be looking at having to cut or trade him in order to meet the cap space if he isn't being productive enough to justify his salary so he may not end up finishing his career here anyway.
