Adrian Peterson’s visit with the New Orleans Saints apparently went well, and apparently something could happen between the two sides down the road, per The Advocate, only he won’t be starting.

“It’s odd to speak of him in these terms since he’s one of the best players of his generation, but Peterson, if he were to sign in New Orleans, it would likely be to serve as a backup of sorts to Ingram.”

Despite no interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Peterson has taken visits to the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. He reportedly worked out for the Patriots, but wasn’t extended an offer.

Peterson wasn’t great in his first season over 30 years old, rushing for 72 yards over three games and putting up career lows across the board. Whether that was from not having Teddy Bridgewater to take pressure off of the running game or what, AP looked horrendous before suffering what became a season-ending torn meniscus.

He is a former MVP, seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro, with a 2,000-yard season under his belt.
