    Adrian Peterson has dominated the news cycle for a few days now after it was ruled he'd be suspended without pay for the rest of the season and then his appeal was denied.

    Numerous media reports have also indicated the Minnesota Vikings are ready to part ways with the dynamic running back and was under scrutiny for disciplining his kid with a switch and has spent the entire season on the commissioner's exempt list, meaning he was suspended with pay up until Monday's ruling.

    That means Peterson will likely be cut this summer, whcih opens the door for a huge Cowboys signing this coming offseason.

    Jerry Jones has already expressed interest in attaining the Texas native and former Oklahoma Sooners standout, and Peterson would almost certainly be up for playing for America's Team and the Vikings don't want to deal with him anymore.

    In other words, nothing will be official for a while, but don't be shocked if the Cowboys decide to let DeMarco Murray go in free agency and make a huge splash by bringing in Peterson this summer. It almost seems like it'd be Jerry's destiny.
