Adrian Peterson: Might be in play for Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lions general manager Bob Quinn said he thinks Peterson (knee) still has something to offer, but Quinn declined to say if the team is interested in signing the veteran running back,'s Kyle Meinke reports.

Detroit has been mentioned as a possible destination, though not necessarily the best fit for what Peterson wants. With both Ameer Abdullah (foot) and Theo Riddick (shoulder) expected to be healthy before training camp, the Lions probably won't consider signing Peterson unless his contract demands soften considerably. The 32-year-old running back reportedly hopes to make upwards of $8 million in the first year of a contract, which would price him well out of Detroit's range. He's also unlikely to get that kind of money from another team, but he might get a better shot to be a crucial part of the offense. Peterson likely would be a complementary piece in Detroit, serving as an early-down runner in a pass-oriented attack. Other possible destinations include Oakland and Green Bay.

Adrian Peterson: May need to reduce contract demands
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (knee) remains unsigned in part because of his hefty contract demands, reports.

Peterson was reportedly asking for more than $8 million in the first year of a contract, which would be in line with the deals given to top running backs the past few years. Considering he's coming off a major injury and just turned 32 years old, he may have to settle for something closer to the deal Eddie Lacy recently signed with Seattle -- a one-year contract worth up to $5.5 million. There are still some potential fits, namely Oakland and Green Bay, but Peterson will first have to accept that teams aren't going to pay him a premium for what he accomplished in the past. Other teams that may be in the market for an early-down runner include the Lions, Patriots, Buccaneers and Giants.

Adrian Peterson: Could be a fit in Green Bay or Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (knee, groin) could be a fit with the Packers, Raiders, Giants, Ravens, Buccaneers or Lions, reports.

Of those teams, the Packers and Raiders have the most glaring need for an early-down bruiser, with Eddie Lacy and Latavius Murray, respectively, departing for other locales in free agency. Minnesota's acquisition of Murray ensures Peterson will join a new team, but the future Hall of Famer may need to reduce his contract demands before any franchise seriously considers signing him.

Adrian Peterson: Waiting game continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (knee) appears to be on the move after Latavius Murray signed with the Vikings on Thursday morning.

After younger running backs like Eddie Lacy (ankle) landed a one-year pact with the Seahawks and Murray signed a three-year deal with just one season guaranteed (according to Field Yates of ESPN) this offseason, Peterson has found a rather tepid market for his services. The development is surprising, in a sense, due to all that Peterson has accomplished since entering the NFL in 2007: seven 1,000-yard seasons on the ground, one of the seven 2,000-yard campaigns in the history of the league (and an accompanying MVP award in 2012), and 102 total touchdowns (No. 21 all-time) in 123 games. On the other hand, he has a legitimate injury history on the ledger, namely seven games missed in his final collegiate season at Oklahoma in 2006, a season-ending torn ACL and MCL in his left knee in 2011, and a 2016 season in which he made just three appearances due to a torn meniscus in his right knee. When an organization takes a chance on Peterson, it's unclear exactly what type of role he'll take on, but a lead-back role may be withering away as roster construction continues unabated.

Adrian Peterson: Scheduled to visit Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (knee/groin) is scheduled to visit with the Seahawks, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Peterson has mostly been connected with strong Super Bowl contenders, including the Seahawks and Patriots. A return to Minnesota hasn't been ruled out, but there does seem to be some lingering tension between the two sides. Peterson is expected to take his time making a decision, and the Seahawks are also planning to bring in Jamaal Charles and Latavius Murray for visits.
