Adrian Peterson Day took priority over Minnesota Vikings minicamp.
Peterson was absent from Friday's mandatory practice because of an event in his honor in his hometown, and coach Brad Childress is unhappy about it.

"I just know that there's a bunch of guys here," Childress said. "This has the term mandatory for a reason. The work's here."

The fourth annual Adrian Peterson Day is scheduled for Saturday in Palestine, Texas, where the All-Pro running back was raised. There will be a parade and a meet-and-greet session for the locals with Peterson, who has been mostly working out on his own in Houston this offseason.

Childress said he "had an inkling" about the conflict but that Peterson didn't tell him until an appearance at the team's facility this week.

"I don't know if it's going to be like every year they're going to have that," Childress said, "but we're going to have this too."

Let the guy go home! It's not that big of a deal in my opinion

Peterson is SOOO dense...

He still just doesn't get it. He cost them the NFC championship. He needs to keep quiet and learn to hold on to the ball.

He looks like he couldn't pass an elementary school FCAT if his very life depended on it. Him and that QB that the Raiders drafted a few years ago should team up and do their own version of Dumb and Dumber. Fumbling & Bumbling. :)
