Rick Spielman confirms Adrian Peterson done with Vikings

Spencer Simpson | 17 March, 2017, 00:56

Latavius Murray has known no other number than the No. 28 he wore for three seasons with the Oakland Raiders. There haven't been any reciprocal signs of interest those teams, although Murray's departure does leave the Raiders without their leading rusher from last season. Instead, Murray said he will go with No. 25. "Hope to get something done in next few days. I'm just glad to be given this opportunity by this organization".

"There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28", Murray wrote.

He reiterated that statement Thursday.

With 33 receptions for 264 yards last season, Murray is more of a three-down player than Peterson, whose swift and powerful running skills were better suited to the state of the National Football League when he entered it in 2007. "I've been a huge fan of everything that he's done there, so it was something that I didn't even need them to tell me, and everything worked out".

"I'm going to wear No. 25 to represent my best friend that passed away past year during Thanksgiving, during the season", Murray explained. I'm not here to be No. 28; there's no one like him. The high school teammates had remained close friends after Murray left to pursue his football dreams at Central Florida and then the NFL.

The Minnesota Vikings slammed the door shut on a possible Adrian Peterson return on Thursday, with general manager Rick Spielman giving a definitive statement on the matter.

"Adrian will be moving on", Spielman said on a conference call with local reporters.
