Report: Saints to host Adrian Peterson next week

Still without a team, Adrian Peterson is set to visit another team in the upcoming week. According to Heath Evans, the free agent running back will visit the New Orleans Saints.

While Peterson remains unsigned, he has certainly been active this week. Most recently, he visited with the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, which you can read about here.

Additionally, even without a contract, it’s said that at least 3-5 teams remain interested in the former league MVP.

Peterson had an injury plagued season in 2016. He played in only three games for the Minnesota Vikings, rushing for 72 yards on 37 carries. In 2015, however, he ran for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns, leading the league in both categories.

New Orleans had a middle of the road rushing attack in 2016. The Saints ranked 16th in total rushing yards (1,742), 13th in yards per attempt (4.3), and tied for sixth in total touchdowns (17). Adding a bell cow running back like All Day to a Drew Brees-led offense could be an amazing move.
