It’s Official: Adrian Peterson Will Move to the New Orleans Saints
In a move that really surprised no one, Adrian Peterson has moved on from the Minnesota Vikings. The star running back will join the New Orleans Saints.
The deal gives Peterson a $3.5 million paycheck in 2017. What is surprising is that the Saints were the only team to offer #28 a deal in the NFL.
According to NFL.com, Peterson said he wanted to sign with someone who is a "contender."
With that said, the run blocking offense of the Saints is pretty solid, so will Peterson be on the radar of fantasy players?
And, whatever beef he has with the Vikings, he'll be able to prove himself with a new team as the Viking will play the Saints in week 1 on Monday Night Football!
That will be one to watch.
