    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for 26 yards in Week 11 against the Houston Texans and he had just one catch for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Peterson had two 100-yard games in his first three appearances with the team, and it looked like vintage AP. However, he has managed just 55 yards on 35 carries, or a paltry 1.6 yards per tote. That's simply not going to do. Things don't figure to get better against a stout Jaguars defense in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/11/2017 7:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: In four games since joining the Cardinals, Peterson has rushed for more than 130 yards twice and less than 30 yards twice. He will be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 9:21pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried the ball 21 times for 29 yards (1.4 YPC) during the team's 22-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Peterson caught one pass for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: You knew the Seahawks would load up to stop the run, but 29 yards on 21 carries is brutal production. That gives AD two huge games and two miserable games since joining the Cardinals. Expect the Houston Texans to adopt a similar gameplan in Week 11, but with the extra rest Peterson could return to RB2 status.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 7:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried a career-high 37 times for 159 yards in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. He had the most carries in NFL history for a running back over the age of 30.

    Huddle Up: Peterson racked up his second 100-yard game since coming over from the New Orleans Saints in a trade, re-emerging as a solid RB2 fantasy option in most leagues. He and his teammates have a quick turnaround before hosting the Seahawks in Week 10 on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 8:18am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Feed the beast,' offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. 'It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.'

    Huddle Up: The Niners have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs the last five weeks and all season. However, a big chunk of that has been through the air, which Peterson doesn't excel at. He should still see enough looks to be in the low-end RB2 realm.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 21 yards in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.

    Huddle Up: Peterson and the Arizona offense have two weeks to figure it out with a bye. It will be a challenge for Arizona going forward, as the team lost Carson Palmer to a broken arm and he is expected to miss at least eight weeks.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 10:01am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: It's a shocking workload for a player who looked like he had roughly four days to prepare, but the 32-year-old Peterson continued to defy logic with 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's back in the RB2 conversation in Week 7 as the Cardinals face a Los Angeles Rams run defense that has struggled to contain opposing running games all season long.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 8:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Playing from ahead against Tampa Bay's banged-up group of linebackers certainly helped Peterson pad his numbers, but it looks like he has a little more left in the tank than he was being given credit for. It might not hurt to try to sell high on Peterson after his big performance, but RB2 production isn't out of the question while David Johnson is out.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 8:47am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: That was to be expected. Andre Ellington has received 24 targets on third down in the last two weeks. Peterson should be owned, but the expectations should be modest. Ellington keeps RB4 value in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/10/2017 8:50am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: AP has rushed for 2.39 yards per carry the last two seasons. Yes, there were scheme questions, offensive line questions and questions of what he has left. It's pretty clear he has lost a step. However, the Cardinals are desperate, and if Peterson has anything left to give - this is his last chance. Pick him up for depth in deeper leagues, but his value is heavier in non-PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 4:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been receiving around 10 touches over the last two games and likely will have a similar workload against the Miami Dolphins. He should be avoided in most leagues because he has not been very productive in new role.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 6:10am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Peterson hasn't had a big enough role on the team to consider in fantasy against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was absent from practice during the portion open to the media Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value has dwindled to the point that he's probably not worth a flex play against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:41pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson ran nine times for 33 yards in Week 3 at Carolina and he added two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has looked like a shell of his former self with the Saints, but Sean Payton keeps going to him for double-digit touches per week. However, Peterson is seeing about half the touches as starter Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara is coming on, too. The fantasy future of Peterson is murky at best.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 6:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson carries eight times for just 26 yards in Week 2 against New England.

    Huddle Up: It's strange seeing Peterson in a reserve role, but he has managed a total of 14 touches with 44 rushing yards through two games. It's the 2017 fantasy season and so far Peterson has been a very small part of it after years of domination.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 7:09am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson does not have any problems with head coach Sean Payton and the team has no plans of trading or releasing Peterson, according to sources. The team hopes to run the ball more in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Peterson could receive some more snaps this week but is still sharing snaps with Mark Ingram. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense and probably should only be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he 'didn't sign up for nine snaps,' but he said he and head coach Sean Payton are on the same page.

    Huddle Up: Peterson had six carries for 18 yards, but Mark Ingram had six carries for 17 yards and Alvin Kamara had seven rushes for 18 yards. The load was split up evenly, and the Saints trailed for most of the game, which will keep Peterson on the sidelines a lot. What's clear is the talk that he might be mixed into the passing game probably isn't going to happen. All three backs are matchup plays in the RB3 range.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 7:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson played only nine snaps in the club's Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 11, against the Minnesota Vikings, en route to logging just six rushes for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: In Peterson's defense, the Saints were trailing pretty much the whole way, which kept him on the sidelines as New Orleans was mostly passing in order to catch up. He also managed to tie Alvin Kamara for the team lead in rushing yards, but it's still an alarming usage rate for the future Hall-of-Famer. With the Patriots up next, the Saints are more likely to find themselves trailing again for the majority of the contest, making it tough to deploy Peterson as a flex option.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 9:15pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson rushed six times for 15 yards in a 13-0 preseason win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: One lackluster showing in the preseason isn't cause for concern, but the state of the backfield in New Orleans is. Peterson figures to split carries with Mark Ingram to some degree and give way to Alvin Kamara on passing downs. Of course, fewer carries could translate to more production if Peterson stays healthy and fresh all season, but expecting him to be more than a RB3 is dangerous.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 10:03pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (rest) will not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, August 10, against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: It's pretty standard to see aging veterans not play in the first preseason game, so owners have nothing to worry about here. As has been the case all summer, Peterson should still be viewed as a top sleeper candidate, having the potential to legitimately meet an RB2 ceiling in the Saints' high-octane offense if he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 3:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is motivated by those who doubt his age, ability, health, etc. 'I'd be lying to say [the doubt] doesn't [motivate me],' Peterson said. 'You want to do things people say you can't do.'

    Huddle Up: There is credence to the doubt surrounding Peterson. At 32 years old, Peterson has missed almost two full seasons in the last three years. He'll be splitting playing time with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to boot. Nonetheless, he is Adrian Peterson, after all. View him as a flex option in a high-scoring, high-flying offense.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 9:06am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has had more than 400 receiving yards only once in his career, but he is shooting for 500 in 2017. 'I was attracted to playing with (Drew) Brees, a guy who is good at distributing the ball to different players. I know in this system, I'll get some opportunities to catch the ball in space. Drew Brees, he'll get the ball to me,' Peterson said.

    Huddle Up: Brees loves throwing to his running backs, but 500 receiving yards is a big ask in a backfield which also has Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and maybe even Travaris Cadet vying for touches. Peterson will be fortunate to top 1,000 total yards this season, and owners should be thrilled if he can give them roughly 750 yards rushing and 350 receiving to go along with eight to 10 touchdowns. He's on the RB2 borderline and probably should be drafted as a RB3.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 8:14am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is likely on tap for 150 carries, according to Saints color commentator Deuce McAllister. 'If he gets (about 150 carries), he'll get probably 700 to 1,000 yards,' McAllister said. Peterson is keeping his weight between 215 and 219 pounds with 6 percent body fat. Peterson, who has totaled more than 400 receiving yards once, said he'd like to tally 500 receiving yards.

    Huddle Up: It's important not to get overhyped about the 32-year-old's aspirations. He is a freak of nature, but very few backs have been this productive at his age. They also have Pro Bowler Mark Ingram and third-rounder Alvin Kamara, who projects as a Darren Sproles type. Peterson is an RB3 in fantasy that could receive a boost in this dynamic offense if everything goes right.

  • Posted: 6/8/2017 5:56am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he wants to play until age 37 or 38.

    Huddle Up: The 32-year-old has drawn rave reviews at practice, and he could be a solid contributor in the tapered role he's expected to have. Mark Ingram will at least have a 50-50 split with him, and with durability a concern at AD's age, there is some risk taking him as an RB3.

  • Posted: 6/7/2017 8:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has his teammates 'gushing' over his burst and stride length that he's exhibited during organized team activities thus far.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's presence on an already high-powered Saints offense will be one of the more crucial storylines to watch this upcoming season, with many believing the former Minnesota Viking can no longer play at a high level. However, early reports would suggest the opposite, and with Peterson having a chip on his shoulder, it might not be surprising to see the former NFL MVP provide some useful stats for fantasy owners in 2017. Definitely monitor him in drafts.

  • Posted: 5/27/2017 3:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon trained with former teammate Adrian Peterson in Houston during the offseason and weighs 211 pounds, up from 200 a season ago. McKinnon is reportedly not only stronger, but faster as well. 'I?m just ready to prove myself and show how much better I?ve got in the offseason,' McKinnon said.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings added Latavius Murray and second-round pick Dalvin Cook this spring, but McKinnon boasts enough talent to give both a run for their money. Cook and Murray will likely end up winning out as the team has invested more money in them, although it will be difficult to keep a stronger and faster McKinnon off the field. If his offseason training is as good as he thinks it was, McKinnon could force the Vikings to go with a three-man committee backfield.

  • Posted: 5/2/2017 11:41am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) believes he has 'a lot of years left' in the NFL. Peterson is 32 years old and is entering his 11th season.

    Huddle Up: Time will tell if Peterson can play a few more years, but the odds are not in his favor. He has missed close to two full seasons the last three years because of serious knee injuries. Peterson has proven he can bounce back from such a hindrance, though; he did in 2015. Don't count out Peterson just yet, but don't draft him as an RB1 either. With Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara in the mix, Peterson is more of an RB3 or flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 5/1/2017 7:30pm ET

    The New Orleans Saints' plan for the upcoming season is 'likely to recreate their 2009 and 2011 potent backfield attack' when they implemented a 'three-headed monster' at running back. This came to fruition when they drafted RB Alvin Kamara, who is a 'prototypical third-down back' to complement RBs Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson. Kamara could be in line to play a 'Reggie Bush/Darren Sproles-type role.'

    Huddle Up: This could be a frustrating storyline for those who end up drafting Mark Ingram, seeing as he's proven he can be a productive workhorse back when he is healthy. At the same time, this development also indicates Peterson could turn out to be an excellent value pick if he's getting a good amount of work around the goal line. As for Kamara, owners might want to take a wait-and-see approach with the third-round pick.

  • Posted: 4/30/2017 7:27pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet will compete with RB Alvin Kamara for the third-down back role while RB Adrian Peterson and RB Mark Ingram serve as the traditional backs, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

    Huddle Up: After the Saints traded up for Kamara, he is going to be given a chance to show what he can do. Cadet's value was already limited to deeper PPR formats, and the addition of Kamara likely makes him a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 3:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson will blend well with fellow RB Mark Ingram and will have a clear role in the Saints' offense, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: That role remains unclear for now, but we are in the beginning stages of the offseason. Peterson has plenty of time to get used to his new offense and the like. The likeliest scenario is that Peterson will serve as more of a ground-and-pound back, while Ingram plays more of a pass-catching role (96 catches the last two years). Ingram does have the most fantasy appeal of the two, but his value clearly takes a hit with Peterson there. That said, view Ingram as an RB2 and Peterson as an RB3.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 5:41am ET

    Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson landed a two-year, $7 million deal. He's guaranteed $3.5 million in 2017, which includes a $1 million salary and a $2.5 million signing bonus. The 2018 compensation is $3.5 million, and none of which is guaranteed. It includes $2.4 million in total roster bonuses (which includes a $750,000 roster bonus earned on third day of free agency plus $1.65 million in per-game roster bonuses), a $1.05 million salary and a $50,000 workout bonus.

    Huddle Up: Peterson will be the 1B fiddle to Mark Ingram, and neither back should be valued higher than an RB2 if both backs remain healthy. Peterson falls into the RB3 range because he doesn't catch many passes and is 32 years old.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 5:12am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, April 25.

    Huddle Up: Peterson isn't expected to be the lead back with Mark Ingram expected to serve in that role. However, Peterson's presence will hurt Ingram's fantasy prowess as no more than an RB2. As for AD, he's little more than an RB3 in this situation. Both backs have a lengthy injury history of late, and if one went down, the other would benefit in a big way.

  • Posted: 4/24/2017 1:56pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram would still be the lead running back even if free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) signed with the Saints, according to The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

    Huddle Up: Ingram's stock would take a hit, but he will remain the Saints' most appealing fantasy running back if the Peterson signing does come to fruition. As stated earlier, Ingram and Peterson should be viewed as an RB2 and RB3, respectively, if they are both healthy and if Peterson signs.

  • Posted: 4/24/2017 12:41pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is coming close to a deal with the New Orleans Saints that would pay him $3 million this year, according to sources. The deal is not done, but it is looking optimistic.

    Huddle Up: This move would definitely put a damper on Mark Ingram's fantasy value. Ingram has RB1 upside, but the addition of Peterson would put him into RB2 territory at least, although, Ingram could be used in more of a pass-catching role in this case. He has shown receiving prowess in previous seasons (96 catches the last two seasons). As for Peterson, he would be no more than an RB3 candidate at 32 years old and after missing nearly two full seasons in the last three years.

  • Posted: 4/23/2017 6:49am ET

    The New York Giants are one of several teams continuing to keep close tabs on free-agent RBs LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) and Adrian Peterson (Vikings), in the hopes that their salary demands will go down prior to the draft.

    Huddle Up: Neither Blount nor Peterson should be viewed as prominent RB1 options in most fantasy formats. Blount is 30 and unlikely to duplicate his 18-touchdown performance from last season regardless of where he lands, while Peterson is 32 and has sustained multiple major knee injuries over the last three years.

  • Posted: 4/14/2017 10:59am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) reportedly had a good visit with the New Orleans Saints earlier this week. Although he left without a deal, the door isn't closed on something happening down the line, according to the New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

    Huddle Up: Underhill reports it is unclear whether the two sides talked money and warns Peterson may have to accept the same $3.7 million Mark Ingram is set to make in 2017 in order to sign in New Orleans. Furthermore, Underhill believes Peterson would begin the season as Ingram's backup. Look for AP's market to pick up a bit after the draft is over at the end of this month, but it is becoming increasingly likely his days of being a fantasy force are over.

  • Posted: 4/13/2017 10:25am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is not expected to sign with anyone before the NFL draft. Prospective teams will continue to monitor his status, however.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to sign a 32-year-old running back who has practically missed two full seasons over the last three years. The upcoming running back draft class is stellar, too, which indubitably plays a factor in teams' interest in Peterson. Even if/when he signs, he'll be part of a committee. His days of being a prominent RB1 are likely gone.

  • Posted: 4/13/2017 7:39am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) impressed the New England Patriots, appearing fast and explosive in a recent workout. The New Orleans Saints could seek to sign him before the NFL draft if the financials can be worked out.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is at an advanced age for the position, and he hasn't been much of a receiver. Both of these really limit his fantasy value to the tail end of the RB2 range.

  • Posted: 4/11/2017 11:01pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) met with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, April 11. Although he did not sign a deal the visit went well, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, and the two sides will keep in touch.

    Huddle Up: At this point it seems unlikely Peterson will find a home before the NFL Draft where teams will get a better feel for what their 2017 roster will look like. Obviously a backfield pairing with Drew Brees would be intriguing, but until AD signs somewhere on the dotted line it's all speculation.

  • Posted: 4/9/2017 4:02pm ET

    Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) participated in a workout during his visit with the New England Patriots Monday, April 3.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has received interest from a few teams this offseason but has not signed a deal yet. He may not be able to handle a full workload like he did in the past but should receive a solid amount of carries for his new team. He likely would receive most of the carries if he signed with the Patriots and could be a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 4/6/2017 12:19pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) will meet with the New Orleans Saints next week.

    Huddle Up: This would certainly be an interesting addition to the Saints with Mark Ingram at the head of the running back group. Ingram and Peterson would indubitably form the head of a committee. This could just be another visit that fizzles, though, so keep even keel with both running backs' fantasy value.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 1:12pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) left his visit with the New England Patriots without a deal Monday, April 3, according to sources. He could revisit at a later time, however.

    Huddle Up: As stated earlier, it's tough to gauge Peterson's fantasy value until he signs with a team, but he will likely be part of a committee. For possibly the first time in his career, he should not be viewed as an RB1.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 11:13am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) has drawn interest from three to five teams, according to a source. Peterson does not have a set number for a possible contract and he has not turned down any offers.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is easily the biggest name left on the free-agent market. His injury history and age are keeping teams away, but not all the gas has been expended. That being said, he will likely be part of a committee if/when he is signed, so don't expect him to reach RB1 status again. His value can be better gauged once we know where he'll be playing.

  • Posted: 4/2/2017 2:58pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is scheduled to meet with the New England Patriots Monday, April 3, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots have not re-signed LeGarrette Blount at this point, so Peterson is an option to handle that role if he decides to sign with the Patriots. He likely would receive most of the carries but would not have a big role in the passing game. Peterson could be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues if he joins New England.

  • Posted: 4/1/2017 8:38am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is almost certain not to end up signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. At minimum, Tampa Bay appears willing to wait to let a running back-laden draft play out before they make a decision on Doug Martin, according to Stroud.

    Huddle Up: Speculation had increased recently Peterson was generating interest from Buccaneers after he was spotted working out with Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston. It makes sense why the team is passing at the moment, especially if we believe recent reports the 32-year-old Peterson was/is asking for $8 million per year. With AP's market remaining cold, he's likely going to need to accept a much lower salary than he wants and hope for a training camp injury to a running back in order to find a job in 2017.

  • Posted: 3/30/2017 7:24am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) was pictured working out with Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston Tuesday, March 28.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs have an opening with Doug Martin suspended for the first three games. Peterson is a high-end RB2 option in the right system, and Tampa would be a good one to feature him.

  • Posted: 3/27/2017 5:40pm ET

    Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn would not say if the team is pursuing free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) but does believe Peterson can still play.

    Huddle Up: The Lions have been using a committee at running back but do not have a running back like Peterson on their roster. He likely would receive most of the carries if he signs with the Lions but may not see much work in the passing game. Peterson could be a low-end No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues if he joins the Lions.

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) said he is willing to wait to sign with a team because he is looking for the best fit for him and a chance to win the Super Bowl.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has not met with any teams at this point and has not been linked with a lot of teams, so owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. It is not known what role he will have with his new team, but he could be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he receives most of the carries.

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) reportedly wanted more than $8 million in the first year of any contract he signed during the initial wave of free agency.

    Huddle Up: If true, this report explains the main reason AP is still unemployed. Eddie Lacy landed a one-year deal worth $5.5 million and Latavius Murray's three-year contract averages out to $5 million per year, and both are considerably younger and more useful in the passing game than Peterson. With a draft class heavy in talent at his position, the 32-year-old will likely need to cut his asking price in half to get a bite in free agency.

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) was reportedly close to making a visit with the Green Bay Packers before they decided his initial asking price was too high, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: It's too bad, as Peterson would have been a nice fit as a powerful, early-down thumper for a Packers' attack who needs the element in their offense. Look for Green Bay to turn its attention to backs like Oklahoma's Samaje Perine and BYU's Jamaal Williams next month in the 2017 NFL Draft in order to fill the void. Peterson will almost certainly need the lower his asking price in order to get a job before training camp.
