The Minnesota Vikings announced Tuesday they have opted not to pick up their option on Adrian Peterson, one of the Vikings top players.

A restructured deal two years ago would have paid him $18 million, including a $6 million roster bonus had he been on the roster on the third day of the 2017-2018 NFL season.

Peterson will become an unrestricted free agent on March 9.

"It's been a great 10 years with the Minnesota Vikings," Peterson said in a statement to ESPN's Josina Anderson. "They know what I bring to the organization as a player, with my work ethic and dedication. I spoke with [Vikings GM] Rick Spielman this past weekend. The door is still open to find some common ground. I understand addressing the offensive line is one of their main priorities this offseason.

"In the meantime, I will explore my other options and see what path God leads me on. My main goal remains the same: to win a Super Bowl championship with a great team, which I also believe we have in Minnesota."

Wherever he lands, that team’s odds of winning a title will most certainly be shortened.

The Vikings were around midrange in the odds department with 20-1 odds of winning the 2018 Super Bowl.
