This doesn't come as a huge surprise.

Palestine native Adrian Peterson is expected to be released by the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, according to ESPN. That included a 134-yard performance on October 15 and a 159-yard performance on November 5. Peterson rushed for 529 yards and two touchdowns last season for the Saints and Cardinals before a neck injury he suffered in November cost him the final five weeks of the season.

Before joining the Cardinals, Peterson played four games with the Saints.

Peterson, who will turn 33 next week, doesn't sound ready to walk away from the game. Star running back David Johnson dislocated his wrist, necessitating surgery, and he was knocked out for the entire season. However, if Peterson can't find a team to sign him for a deal that he would like, the Cardinals could bring him back at a much lower price. He also rushed for 97 of his 99 career touchdowns with the Vikings.
