Adrian Peterson missed some of the Vikings' June training camp, and speculation was that it was contract-related. After all, it's pretty widely rumored that Peterson wants a new deal at some point .
However, Peterson's desire for a new contract won't cause him to be late to training camp, according to the Star-Tribune 's Judd Zulgad (via PFT ), who caught up with the Vikings running back at a charity event.
Peterson said he will be at training camp on time and did not miss June minicamp for contract-related reasons.
Peterson also said he is "sure that there have been talks" between his reps and the Vikes. Zulgad tweeted that Peterson "seemed somewhat annoyed" by the fact that people believed he missed the June camp because of a contract issue.
Expect to see Peterson in on time, and don't be surprised if the Vikings are trying to figure out a way to work out some sort of new deal before his base salary gets cranked north of $10 million for the 2011 season.
