Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the Seahawks have “no immediate interest” in RB Adrian Peterson.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, Adrian Peterson top-three landing spots are: 1) Raiders, 2) Seahawks, 3) Patriots.
Robinson mentions that the Raiders end up being his best option, an agreement will come together quickly. Peterson is reportedly seeking between $4-$6 million per year.
However, should Peterson sign with either the Seahawks or Patriots, Robinson says he would be looking at around $2-$3 million per year with “heavy” incentives.
Stacey Dales of NFL Network spoke with a source close to free agent RB Adrian Peterson who told her that the Raiders and Seahawks are “desirable” landing spots for him. Dales’ source added that they will know more Tuesday night.
- Peterson’s father tells Chris Tomasson that there is interest from both the Seahawks and the Raiders in his son.
The Raiders have come up as a team to watch for Peterson since he was cut loose a few weeks ago, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. However, this is the first we’ve seen about the Seahawks possibly being of interest to him.
Others still haven’t ruled out a potential return to the Vikings, depending on how things go in the coming days.
According to Florio, Peterson “isn’t generating significant dollars” in the conversations that have taken place at the Combine and unless things change in the coming weeks. In fact, Florio believes Peterson’s best option could be to wait for an injury at running back. The benefit to this is that Peterson could skip the offseason program and possibly part of training camp.
However, if the offers remain limited, Florio believes Peterson may have to ask whether it’s even worth playing for such a low salary.
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.
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.
