Adrian Peterson appears to be headed back to the open market.

Peterson (neck), who will be released by the Cardinals on Monday, said he received a clean bill of health and intends to continue his career, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The team would have to pay the running back $750,000 if he was still with Arizona by Friday, which is the third day of the National Football League calendar year. Peterson rushed for 529 yards and two touchdowns last season for the Saints and Cardinals before a neck injury he suffered in November cost him the final five weeks of the season. However, A.P. may sign a new deal with Arizona after that.

The opposition has accused ministry officials of hiding some key documents and colluding to cover up the scandal. Abe indicated the results of an internal investigation by the ministry will be released early next week.

"I think I would want to play maybe four more years, four to five more years", Peterson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press last month.

Schefter adds that Peterson could return to Arizona in the future, although that wouldn't offer Peterson much playing time unless the Cardinals lose David Johnson to another serious injury during the 2018 season.
