(Minneapolis, MN- Minnesota News Network)  --  Several Vikings officials have openly expressed the desire to have Adrian Peterson back on the team next season, but it appears the suspended running back may not feel the same.

Peterson told ESPN yesterday that he's "uneasy" about a return to the Vikings because he feels the team didn't support him when the NFL decided to place him on the commissioner's exempt list while he dealt with child abuse charges in Texas.  Peterson says the decision felt like an ambush, and he expected more loyalty from a team he's spent his entire career with.

Peterson is under contract with the Vikings for 2015 for at least $12.75 million, and can apply to be reinstated on April 15.  The suspension resulted from Peterson being charged with child abuse in his home state of Texas.
