After a visit with the New England Patriots concluded with no contract, former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is now reportedly set to visit with the New Orleans Saints.
According to former NFL fullback Heath Evans and NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Peterson will meet with the Saints next week.
The Saints would be the third team that Peterson has visited with since the Vikings declined the option on his contract. The former Viking has met with the Seahawks and the aforementioned Patriots.
It has been rumored that Peterson's asking price is rather high and that has prevented him from getting a new contract though it is believed by many NFL insiders and people close to him that he would be willing to take less money if he viewed the team as a Super Bowl contender.
Not sure if the Saints fall in the realm of a contending team given they had one of the worst defenses in the NFL last season, but sounds like Peterson is at least going to talk with them.
