General manager Rick Spielman officially shut the door on Adrian Peterson returning to the Vikings on Thursday afternoon during a conference call to discuss the signing of free agent running back Latavius Murray.

Peterson, the seventh-overall pick by the Vikings in the 2007 draft, was released by the Vikings before free agency started and made his only visit so far to Seattle.

Spielman also added the following.

Murray, meanwhile, said earlier Thursday that he would not request to continue wearing the No. 28 he wore in Oakland. That, of course, was Peterson’s number in Minnesota. Instead, Murray said he will go with No. 25.
