Radisson pulls Vikings sponsorship deal in wake of Adrian Peterson charges: Report

The fallout from the Adrian Peterson arrest is beginning to hit the Minnesota Vikings where it hurts most — and it's not on the playing field.

Radisson pulled out of its corporate sponsorship deal with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, as a second child abuse accusation against the team’s running back was made public.

The huge hotel chain announced it was “suspending its limited sponsorship of the Minnesota Vikings while we evaluate the facts and circumstances,” in a statement by the company — whose logo prominently appeared behind general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer as they spoke about Peterson's case earlier.

Other sponsors, according to the Vikings website, include New Era hats and GTM Sportswear. No word on if they will jump ship as well.
