There were rumors heading into free agency that it could happen and apparently Adrian Peterson is one step closer to possibly joining the New England Patriots:

There’s certainly plenty of hoops to jump through for Peterson to land with the Patriots, but an official visit is a pretty big deal this late in the game.

The move comes on the same day it was reported the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had no interest in Peterson.

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.
