Cardinals release RB Adrian Peterson
Adrian Peterson has been released by the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced on Tuesday.
Arizona would have had to pay the running back $750,000 if he was still with the team by Friday, which is the third day of the NFL calendar year.
Peterson, 32, played six games with the Cardinals in 2017 before he was placed on the injured reserve with a neck injury in week 12.
In those six games, Peterson had 448 rushing yards with no touchdowns.
