(ESPN) – The agent for Adrian Peterson said Wednesday night that the Minnesota Vikings have no plans to release the running back.

Ben Dogra told multiple news outlets that Vikings general manager Rick Spielman relayed that decision to him Wednesday.

“It was important for me to relay the position the Vikings are taking to Adrian,” Dogra told Fox Sports. “I want to make sure there is absolutely no confusion whatsoever.”

According to multiple media reports, Peterson flew to New York on Monday for yet another meeting with Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf, as well as Spielman, about his concerns over a return to Minnesota next season.
