After just six games with his new team during the 2017 National Football League season, the Arizona Cardinals are expected to release the all-pro running back, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Due a $750,000 roster bonus on March 16, it was always unlikely the tailback saw that incentive. Peterson had a couple of impressive outings for Arizona, but wound up on injured reserve with a neck injury before the year was out.

The Cardinals have David Johnson, Bronson Hill, Elijhaa Penny, T.J. Logan and Darius Victor as running backs under contract for next season.
