The Adrian Peterson era in Arizona has reached its conclusion.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals will release Peterson in order to avoid having to pay him the $750,000 bonus he is due on the third day of the league year.
Last year, the Arizona Cardinals lost their best player during the first game of the season.
Star running back David Johnson is expected to be fully healthy for Arizona after suffering a season-ending wrist injury in Week 1. He adds, however, Peterson could still return to the Cardinals once he's cut.

He says Turkish troops have destroyed water and power stations that supply the town of Afrin, making it hard for people to stay. In the Ghouta offensive alone, at least 1,144 civilians have been killed, including 240 children , the Observatory said.
At age 32, and 33 when the 2018 season starts, Peterson isn't exactly a hot commodity and his style a play is more 1998 than 2018.
Peterson spent 2007 to 2016 with the Vikings, making seven Pro Bowls, four All-Pro teams while winning the 2012 MVP.
For his career, Peterson ranks 12th on the all-time list with 12,276 rushing yards, three behind Marshall Faulk and 36 shy of Jim Brown at No. 10.
