Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson was recently reinstated by the NFL. However, that doesn’t mean that he’ll be present when the team begins offseason workouts Monday.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Peterson did show up at the Vikings’ voluntary workouts last season, though he typically hadn’t in years past.
Last year, Peterson showed for a few days out of respect for Mike Zimmer. Contract bonus is tied to OTAs/minicamp, not conditioning program

Peterson is currently working out in Texas with Houston Texans’ running back Alfred Blue, who claims the 30-year-old running back is ready to “show the world,” per NFL Media’s Kevin Patra, upon returning from an awkward and difficult 2014 season.
All reports seem to indicate that Peterson wishes to move on from the Vikings, so it would be really surprising to see him at the team’s facility working out with current teammates. The next couple of weeks leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft could shed more light as to which direction Peterson’s future is headed.
