Adrian Peterson is set to hit the free agent market on Thursday, and he has a list of teams he’d like to play for next season. But there’s one small problem: none of the teams he wants to play for have much interest in him, according to reports from around the league.

Peterson’s father, Nelson, told the Pioneer Press his son wants to play for the Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks. But those three teams aren’t necessarily interested in Peterson.

Peterson, 31, is coming off of a season where he was plagued with injuries. The Minnesota Vikings declined an $18 million option on the former MVP this offseason.

Other teams, such as the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers and New York Giants could also be in the mix for Peterson, but it appears as if he will have to take a big pay cut if he wants to play for one of his desired teams next season.
