Not sure if this means the gloves are coming off or what. pic.twitter.com/aPvTfogWi8— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) April 21, 2015For months, there’s been talk of Adrian Peterson and his agent Ben Dogra insisting on the Minnesota Vikings finding a trade partner for the All-Pro running back. Well, based on the tweet of Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson, it appears Dogra is ready to make a deal happen.Rumors were already going around that there are six teams — the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – in the hunt to trade for Peterson. Now it appears the Buccaneers have taken the lead — or are Dogra’s favorite NFL team.The Vikings are rumored to be looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in return for Peterson. The Buccaneers own the No. 1 overall pick, which they wouldn’t give up for a 30-year-old running back with a $12.75 salary in 2015. They also own the No. 34 overall pick at the top of second round, which could be considered a very late first-round pick. Tampa Bay has a few solid cornerbacks they could dangle — Johnthan Banks or Leonard Johnson, maybe?Another option for the Vikings could be taking the Buccaneers’ second-round pick and swapping Peterson for Doug Martin, a talented young running back who has struggled after his rookie season in Tampa Bay’s subpar offensive.Who knows exactly what Dogra’s post meant, but it’s certainly gotten the rumor mill whirling.____Two things. One, you can never tell with all of these items, but it could be the truth. Two, I really hate the idea of playing AP twice a year for the next three years.
