Trent Baalke does not want to talk about the past. It’s the one thing the San Francisco 49ers general manager made clear dodging questions about parting ways this year with Jim Harbaugh and more recent reports of Rees Odhiambo Authentic Womens Jersey not hiring Adam Gase as Harbaugh’s replacement over a disagreement on who to make defensive coordinator.
“I’ve got no response to that,” Baalke said when asked about Harbaugh’s recent revelation that his departure was not mutual despite the team’s insistence otherwise. “Jim’s moved on. We’ve moved on.”
He added, “Head football coach at Michigan is a heckuva job. I know that’s something that Jim’s always wanted to do.”
And that was all he said on the matter, despite being repeatedly grilled about it from several corners of the room.
Further complicating matters is the fact that Peterson is still under contract with the Vikings in the final season of a six-year, $86.2 million contract that will pay him $12.75 million in 2015. Minnesota has indicated it wants him back, but he remains in limbo as he and his family weigh their options.
From a football standpoint, adding a player of Peterson’s caliber is a no-brainer for the Vikings. Second-year signal caller Teddy Bridgewater will need all the support he can get from his supporting cast and could benefit a great deal development-wise from a powerful Richard Sherman Authentic Womens Jersey running game.
For now, both sides are in a holding pattern as Peterson awaits potential reinstatement. That date could come as soon as April 15, which would be over a month removed from the start of free agency, but still before the draft. The coaching staff has Peterson’s support, but when it comes to the organization as a whole, he has mixed feelings.
