MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson was a victim, not the aggressor, during an altercation with authorities that led to his arrest at a Houston night club over the weekend, his attorney said Monday.
Peterson, a Texas native who makes his offseason home in Houston, was arrested and taken to jail early Saturday morning and charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. Police said he pushed an off-duty police officer who was working security at the club. An initial court appearance is set for Friday.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Percy Harvin was nowhere to be found at the Minnesota Vikings’ mandatory minicamp practice Wednesday afternoon, and no one seems to know when the star receiver will be back in purple.
Unhappy with several issues with the team that drafted him in the first round in 2009, Harvin requested a trade, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Jerome Simpson jogged off the sun-soaked field and playfully performed a pirouette before greeting a group of reporters waiting to ask him about his gravity-defying catch during practice an hour or so earlier.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — While most of the Minnesota Vikings held an optional practice at the team's headquarters, Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson could only watch from the sidelines while they work their way back from injuries.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Most Republican lawmakers who control Minnesota’s Legislature never met a tax increase they liked, but a handful said Thursday that the state’s portion of the cost of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium should be funded with new taxes on the team and its fans — rather than with revenue from an expansion of legal gambling.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota Senate committee narrowly approved a public subsidy on Friday to help the Vikings build a new football stadium, reviving the team’s struggling effort just hours after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell visited the state Capitol to jumpstart what had been a stalled stadium debate.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s latest stadium snag has the NFL publicly questioning the state’s interest in keeping the Vikings, and league Commissioner Roger Goodell is concerned enough that he is coming for another visit.
