Saints to sign RB Adrian Peterson

Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 10:11am

Josina Anderson - [Full Article]

Adrian Peterson tells me he plans to sign with the Saints on a 2-yr deal, effectively a (1 + 1 year option) term worth a base value of $7M.

Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate: "(Mark Ingram) would be the lead back. Peterson would be his backup. The Saints ran the ball 404 times last year."

Fantasy Impact:

After a 1,485-yard season in 2015, Peterson gained just 72 yards on 37 carries (1.9 YPC) in 2016 while his season was interrupted by meniscus surgery. He’s 32 years old and doesn’t run well out of the shotgun, which has become the norm in today’s NFL. We don't believe he'll usurp Ingram as the starter, though he should see a significant role a la Tim Hightower. Ingram may become a draft day value if his ADP takes a hit after this signing.
