Just when you thought the Patriots offseason moves were finally over, now Adrian Peterson is now set to meet with the defending Super Bowl champions. This is Peterson's second known free-agency visit of the off-season, having also met with the Seahawks.
Peterson was released by the Vikings last month, ending his illustrious 10-year run with the organization. He played only three games in 2016 due to a knee injury. At this stage in his career, Peterson surely is looking to play for a Super Bowl tending team.
Adrian Peterson reportedly is visiting the Patriots on Monday.
A Patriots offense that features Peterson along with Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and newly acquired Brandin Cooks could be one of the most lethal attacks in recent memory.
After basically sitting out the first month of free agency, it looks like Adrian Peterson has chose to start April with a splash. He carried 37 times for 72 yards last season, returning in less than three months from his injury to play against the Colts on December 18. The Bucs might need a running back, too, seeing as how they could cut ties with Doug Martin without taking a salary cap hit after he violated the NFL's substance-abuse policy past year and will be suspended for the first three games of the season. Even though Blount had a good season for the Patriots, they don't appear to be in a rush to bring him back.
