Adrian Peterson Signs Two-Year Deal With Saints
Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports
Former Vikings superstar RB Adrian Peterson has finalized a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints that will pay him $7 million, which includes $3.5 million guaranteed in 2017 and is worth up to $8.25 million with incentives and escalators. Per

"I am excited to be joining the New Orleans Saints," Peterson said. "I'm really looking forward to this opportunity. Most importantly, I chose this team because it just felt right within my spirit. Additionally, my wife and family added their confirmation with the same feelings. On offense, it goes without saying that the Saints are really solid behind Drew Brees. I feel like my skill set can make them even more dominant as a unit.

"They have a great offensive line, which is something that stood out to me as well. I could tell from talking to head coach Sean Payton over the last two weeks that he did his due diligence in evaluating how I could contribute. I also did a lot of homework on the defense as well. While I know that injuries have played a role in performance, I also see areas of potential with a lot of younger guys having the ability to step up. Lastly, it goes without saying that the Saints have an amazing fan base and I look forward to making them proud and creating everlasting memories."
How you feeling about this? Peterson too beat up and old? Or good to go?

better than rolling the dice in the draft. Now we can draft a QB and defense.
