McElroy | Adrian Peterson could be very successful with Saints

by Fredrick Graves April 25, 2017, 12:54

The New Orleans Saints and former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson may be close to agreeing on a contract, according to National Football League analyst Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport cited sources saying that Peterson is closing in on a contract with the New Orleans Saints that would be worth approximately $3 million for the upcoming 2017 season.

The Vikings host the Saints to open the regular season, September 11 on Monday Night Football.

Peterson is also 32 and coming off a season in 2016 with Minnesota where he was limited to three games, mostly because of a torn meniscus in his right knee.

With the exception of the two seasons Brett Favre played in Minnesota, Brees would undoubtedly be the best quarterback with which Peterson has played.

The injured, identified as Asif, Karan and Sanjay, were undergoing treatment at a hospital. It has been learned that a case is registered under IPC 304, according to ANI report.

A fifth-round pick in 2013, Gillislee rushed for 577 yards and eight touchdowns on 101 carries last season as LeSean McCoy's backup in Buffalo. They went younger, signing Raiders free agent Latavius Murray. Hightower, in his 30-year-old season with much less wear than Peterson, contributed 548 yards at 4.1 per carry.

Now, it's looking like the top suitor for Butler might not be willing to pony up the draft picks likely needed to pry the Super Bowl XLIX hero out of New England. His arrival in New England increases the likelihood the Patriots won't keep unrestricted free agent LeGarrette Blount, who led the team in rushing past year.

Will Adrian Peterson have a new home before the start of the Thursday evening portion of the 2017 NFL Draft? New Orleans' primary tailback Mark Ingram Jr.is a more versatile tailback of Peterson.

Speculation regarding free agent running back Adrian Peterson and the Green Bay Packers may soon come to an anticlimactic end. Ingram had his first 1,000-yard season on the ground and racked up a career-high 10 touchdowns for the Saints.
