Peterson visiting the Saints
- Updated: April 6, 2017
It has been a really tough free agent market for former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Whether he really doesn’t have much left in the tank or if he’s asking for too much money or both, the bottom line is that he still doesn’t have a home.
So far, he’s visited the Seattle Seahawks (probably not happening) and the New England Patriots (was reportedly a sham visit).
Now, according to Heath Evans, Peterson is headed down to the Big Easy to meet with the New Orleans Saints.
“Former #Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will meet with the #Saints next week, per @HeathEvans44,” tweets Ian Rapoport.
I’m not sure that Peterson would bring anything all that different than what they have in Mark Ingram at this point. Peterson was clearly a better player at one point in his career, but is he still?
It will be interesting to see who lands Peterson and what they end up paying him.
