Up and coming in the world of the NFL is free agency. At this point in the offseason teams sign and trade various players. Many players are cut from the team if the team and players are unable to make a deal. Players make an offer for a contract length and salary. If the team is unable to provide the salary the player wants they will be cut. In the case of Adrian Peterson the Vikings had no interest in keeping him. In this case if the offer from Peterson was to high the Vikings would drop him. Now that the Vikings have dropped Peterson, he is in free agency.
With very little news on free agency in the NFL at the moment, it is tough to say what is happening. There is currently over 100 top free agency players up for grabs by teams. Although the process is very similar to other sports like hockey, baseball, and basketball, NFL free agency can be very unpredictable. I am very excited to see what the NFL has in store for its next season. Until then, check out the Minnesota Wild! The NFL season maybe over for now but the Wild are generating an electric performance with a fan base that is just as loyal as any NFL fan!
