Adrian Peterson, Saints closing in on contract

The Saints and Peterson are still talking about a contract, Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune reports. Peterson visited with the Saints earlier this month.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Peterson is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints on a deal that will pay him around $3 million in 2017.

The Vikings moved on from the 32-year-old running back this offseason, instead signing former Raider Latavius Murray. Hightower produced 100-yard games in each of the past two years while Ingram was either injured or temporarily benched.

Every once in a while, though, Girlboss wholly dives into the nostalgic muck and wallows with abandon that I appreciated. Robertson brings plenty of energy and charisma to the role, but her performance is ultimately just that: a performance.

Ingram rushed for 1,043 yards in 2016 while Peterson - who has rushed for at least 1,000 yards seven times in his career - played in only three games past year because of injuries. Peterson could possibly take on an even bigger role.

The four-time All-Pro had seven 1,000-yard rushing seasons in nine years, including the second-best total in National Football League history with 2,097 yards in 2012, but battled injuries the last few seasons. However, he sat out the Vikings' final two games because of an adductor strain he suffered in his first game back. He had 72 yards rushing on 37 carries. Most people didn't expect him to be ready in time to start the 2012 season, but Peterson made a superhuman recovery and was back for Week 1.
