Vikings running back Adrian Peterson compared NFL owners' treatment of players to "modern-day slavery," according to an online interview published Tuesday by Yahoo! Sports.
Yahoo's Doug Farrar, who conducted the interview Friday with Peterson, removed that comment from the story later Tuesday, explaining on Twitter that he wants to give Peterson the chance to provide context.
Peterson, who is known to be thoughtful when speaking with the local media in Minnesota, is in Africa with other NFL players on a goodwill trip and unavailable for immediate comment.

There is real slavery in the world. Arabs in the Sudan have been capturing and trading slaves for years. Perhaps Peterson could stop by while he is in Africa and explain to the tens of thousands of Sudanese slaves how badly he is treated by his slave masters in the USA.
Peterson will make almost $11 million this year.Adrian Peterson
Peterson graduated from the University of Oklahoma.
Obviously he did not major in Communications or History.
