Adrian Peterson appears to be up to his old tricks when it comes to how he handles contract situations with the Minnesota Vikings.

Peterson has one year and $18 million left on his contract with the Vikings, but none of the money is guaranteed and the Vikings could choose to release their all-time leading rusher before March 11 to avoid paying the 32-year-old running back a $6 million roster bonus.

So when Peterson tweets out something like this, it gets noticed.

Yahoo Sports notes that the Giants made two significant moves this week, cutting wide receiver Victor Cruz and last season's leading rusher Rashad Jennings to clear up a combined $10 million in salary cap space.

Peterson missed most of last season because of a knee injury, but he is only one season removed from winning the NFL's rushing title.

AP already mentioned the Giants would be one place he'd be interested in signing if he doesn't return to Minnesota next year.
