Patriots Rumor: Team Not Interested In Free Agent Running Back Adrian Peterson

According to Pro Football Talk, the Patriots have not yet discussed Adrian Peterson, and it would be safe to assume they won’t pursue him at all.

Peterson would have needed to take a major pay cut if he ever were to sign with New England, as he made over $12 million last season and the Patriots rarely ever pay their running backs more than $2 million a year. It is rumored that Peterson would be willing to take a pay cut to come and play in New England but it likely would not be enough to make the Patriots sign him.

In his 10-year career he has rushed for over 1,000 yards seven times. There are still some lingering effects with his past off the field issues, so the news isn’t surprising at all.

According to reports running back LeGarrette Blount will be departing, so the team will need to add a running back. Below are several free agent options for New England to consider.

Of course all eyes are on the Patriots to potentially draft Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey who could be a perfect fit for the Patriots system. Draft charts have him at around the 19th pick in the 1st round and with the Patriots sitting back at 32 it is unlikely they will be able to draft him unless they decide to trade up.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
