Gus Bradley: Jaguars not talking about Adrian Peterson

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said he and general manager Dave Caldwell are not having any conversations about acquiring Adrian Peterson.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were linked to Adrian Peterson in a report yesterday with a handful of other teams about a possible trade, but in a Thursday press conference, head coach Gus Bradley effectively put that rumor to bed.

That's not to say the Jaguars are completely out of the running, as a trade won't likely happen until next week's NFL Draft, but it's a very slim possibility the team pursues him if Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell aren't currently having conversations.

With cap hits of $15.4 million, $15 million and $17 million the next three seasons, it was always an uphill battle with Caldwell to go after such a high-priced guy, even if he's one of the best players in the league.
