Every week you write that it would be "ridiculous" to trade AP. You also put out your power ranking every week. Do you see any teams in the top ten that are built around a RB? Top 20? See any built around a 30 year old RB, which is what AP will be in 2015 by the time the vikes might be competitive? See any devoting 15M in cap space to a 30 year old RB? For that matter, do you know of any dominant 30 year old RBs in the NFL today? In the last two decades? Ever in the history of football? AP might run for 1,300 or even 1,400 yards at age 30 -- a truly fabulous year for a RB at that age. A good NFL back might only get 1,100 or 1,200. You don't pay 15M for an extra 200 yards on the ground. Put your money on what wins. That is not, never has been, and never will be a 30 year old RB. By the way, the vikes will also be paying a 32 year old Greg Jennings 11M in 2015. Good luck with that cap structure. Think New England would pay two aging skill position guys 26M? That is why they win and we lose.
