Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent RB Adrian Peterson has left his visit with the Saints without a contract. Rapoport adds that the meeting went and the two sides plan to remain in contact.
This was Peterson’s third meeting with an NFL team since free agency opened last month. The other visits were with the Seahawks and Patriots.
The Packers, Raiders, Lions, Giants and Buccaneers have also come up at different points in the offseason as potential landing spots for Peterson.
Peterson, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Vikings back in 2007. He was entering the final year of his three-year, $44 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $11.75 million to go along with a $6 million roster bonus due on March 11.
Peterson is testing the open market for the first time in his career.
In 2016, Peterson has rushed for 72 yards on 37 carries (1.9 YPC) to go along with three receptions for eight yards receiving and no touchdowns over the course of three games.
