Adrian Peterson's future with the Arizona Cardinals is in doubt with ESPN reporting that the Cardinals will release him on Monday. 

Peterson played for the Saints and Cardinals last season – the first season of his 10-year career that wasn't with the Vikings. 

The 32-year-old rushed for 529 yards and 2 touchdowns before a neck injury ended his season in Week 12. 

Adam Schefter says the decision to release Peterson will save Arizona from having to pay him a $750,000 bonus on Friday, but there's a chance he could ink a new deal to stay in Arizona. 

But that's probably unwise considering Peterson, who said in February that he wants to play four more seasons, would be pushed to a backup role behind David Johnson, who's returning from a knee injury.
