Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer would prefer to play things closer to the vest.
"I think he has his opinions," Zimmer said. "I like Adrian a lot from the little time that I've talked to him. I know that he's a great running back. I don't know anything else."
Zimmer even said he's not sure how to tweet, so the social media age hasn't caught up to him.
Peterson taking to Twitter to express his opinion probably is benign. But there isn't much upside for the Vikings, either.
And although he's the superstar and current face of the franchise, he's expected to follow the procedure like everyone else.
Tweeting about free agents only serves to cause a stir.
