NFC North Notes: Peterson, Vikings, Bears

The Vikings are ready to move forward with running back Adrian Peterson but Raddison is not going to partner up with the team again, according to Darren Rovell of “Our suspended sponsorship has now expired and was not renewed,” company spokesman Ben Gardeen told Rovell. Radisson cancelled its sponsorship of the Vikings as the Peterson scandal made headlines nationally. Here’s more on the Vikings, AD, and other items out of the NFC North..

  • As it stands, Matt Vensel of the Star-Tribune (on Twitter) believes that it’s likely that Peterson will remain with the Vikings for the 2016 season. However, they do have the ability to get out of that deal if they want. Earlier this week, the Vikings and No. 28 agreed a contract restructuring that gives the tailback some additional security and guaranteed cash.
  • The Bears need Lamarr Houston to be the disruptive edge presence they expected when they signed him to a five-year contract that included $14.9MM guaranteed, Rich Campbell of The Chicago Tribune writes. Houston, of course, got attention for the wrong reasons last year when he tore his ACL while doing a sack dance. The 28-year-old, for his part, is determined to restore his reputation.
  • Beyond Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, the Lions have a lot of uncertainty at the wide receiver position, Michael Rothstein of writes. Meanwhile, when it comes to the roster battles, Rothstein predicts that Lance Moore – who is on a deal with a modest guarantee – will make the cut while Greg Salas will not.
