Patriots Rumor: Adrian Peterson Visiting With New England On Monday
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be visiting with the Patriots on Monday. So far AP has visited the Seattle Seahawks and with the Pat’s looking for an every down running back still he could be a potential fit.
Peterson, 32, has battled injuries the last couple of years, but is one of the best running backs in the last decade. Since coming into the league in 2007, he has gone over 1,000 yards rushing seven times. Over the last three years, he’s played in just 20 total games.
If the Patriots decide bringing back LeGarrette Blount doesn’t make sense then you could see them bring in AP. But the price might be too high as the Patriots aren’t known to pay their backs more than two million per season.
