After spending months publicly lobbying for the Vikings to trade running back Adrian Peterson, and most recently demanding a "commitment" from the Vikings to convince Peterson to spend the rest of his career in Minnesota, sports agent Ben Dogra is under the gun for "various potential violations," Yahoo's Rand Getlin reports.

What the possible violations include has not been reported.

Despite Dogra's attempts to seemingly put guaranteed money in Peterson's pockets, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman, in an interview with Pro Football Talk Live on Monday, said the Vikings are ready to honor the former MVP's 2015 contract, but he wouldn't discuss contract details further.

Peterson is due to make about $45 million over the next three years, all of which are contractually controlled by the Vikings. None of the money is guaranteed.
