COPY-Peterson, Vikings tote high hopes to training camp

AP Pro Football Writer

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson says he's "definitely happy" to be back with the Minnesota Vikings, after a tumultuous past year that put his future with the team in doubt.

Peterson and his teammates reported to training camp on a sunny Saturday at Minnesota State University. The dozens of autograph-seeking fans gathered for the annual dorm-room move-in saved their loudest chants and cheers for the 30-year-old running back who played in only one game last season.

Peterson and the Vikings agreed earlier in the week on a revamped contract, fully guaranteeing him the $13 million he was previously scheduled to make in 2015. Peterson was reinstated by the NFL in April after serving a suspension for the child abuse case he was involved in.
