After visiting the Seahawks and Patriots, former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will meet with the Saints next week, according to a report by NFL Media.
Peterson, 32, is meeting with his third team since becoming a free agent for the first time in his career last month. The three-time NFL rushing champion and MVP running back has said he’s focused on finding the best fit and Super Bowl chances over taking the most money.
The Saints went 7-9 for the third straight season last year and have a relatively thin running back depth chart led by Mark Ingram. New Orleans also has Daniel Lasco and Marcus Murphy under contract in the backfield.
Peterson, of course, was a major part of the 2009 Vikings team that fell just short of a Super Bowl appearance in the NFC Championship loss to the Saints in the Superdome.
Peterson had reportedly visited the Patriots on Monday and left without a deal.
