Adrian Peterson Willing To Restructure To Facilitate Trade (3/3 8:02 PT)

fantasy football player photo The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... While Peterson continues to have an open dialogue with the franchise about his future, he has pondered potential trade destinations and would consider a contract restructure if a deal becomes necessary, sources have said. Reported by Yahoo! Sports

Diehards Line: Peterson's father, Nelson, said the running back hasn't requested a trade, nor refused to return to Minnesota. Another source inside Peterson's circle told Yahoo Sports the RB has entertained returning to the Vikings, but has also considered potential trade destinations. Under the latter scenario, Peterson would also consider restructuring his contract to make a trade work. "All the options are open," Nelson Peterson said of those scenarios. "There's no doors closed on anything at this time. ..." Peterson is currently on the commissioner's exempt list and hasn't been officially reinstated by the NFL. While the Cowboys have been reported to be a Peterson favorite destination, the running back prefers five teams: the Cardinals, the Colts, the Cowboys, the Chargers and the Buccaneers. That said, it's still early in the game. We'll continue watching for more.

Demaryius Thomas Unlikely To Sign Franchise Tender Until July (3/3 8:01 PT)

fantasy football player photo The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... An offseason with multiple wrinkles to iron out began Monday with the Broncos placing the franchise tag on Thomas, who is expected to use his minimal bargaining leverage by not signing the franchise tender until July 15. That would allow him to miss the team's mandatory minicamp in June, while also passing on the team's conditioning and organized team activity workouts.  Reported by the Denver Post

Diehards Line: As Post staffer Troy E. Renck wrote, "Consider it a bargaining tactic that will pay the receiver $12.82 million for the 2015 season, while creating time to work out a longterm deal. ..." The Broncos used the non-exclusive franchise tag, permitting other teams to negotiate with the receiver. However, any suitor signing Thomas would have to surrender two first-round draft picks to the Broncos, a price which typically minimizes interest. The non-exclusive tag virtually assures Thomas will be a Bronco in 2015. A team wishing to sign Thomas faces obstacles. The suitor would have to produce a monstrous contract offer sheet the Broncos couldn't match, then compensate Denver with two first-round draft picks. Of course, the move ensures plenty of discussion about the possible ramifications of Thomas' absence from OTAs and other off-season work.
